I fell in love with the quality and design of these Amber Glass Fruit Bowls -- but when I wanted to change up the look, I wasn't afraid to pull out the Spray paint!Here the Willow House Amber Glass Fruit Bowl (small) is given a makeover with Krylon's Looking Glass Paint. She has a beautiful profile, I just wanted to give her a BLiNGy UpDate.
I found the Looking Glass Spray Paint cheapest at Walmart, and shopped Site to Store for pick-up. You can also purchase it at Hobby Lobby with a coupon for about the same as Walmart everyday price.
Using the directions provided on the can, I gave the spray can a good L O N G shake and spray nice even coats in a sweeping motion. It took a few coats to achieve the final look I was going for -- but to be honest, after just one good coat they were more beautiful than I had hoped. Almost like Carnival Glass -- very pretty. Awwww . . . the Amber Girls are getting happy!
After a few good coats 2, with a 3 spot touch up coat -- and appropriate drying time -- this is what I was greeted with ☼ Ta Dah
I know, you're eyeing my Bali Scroll Treasure's Bracelet
(another BLiNGy update -- though this one is for my wardrobe ;)
Absolutely Stunning in Multiples! Three Gorgeous 'Silver' Bowls all lined up in a row -- what a beautiful (and SIMPLE) centerpiece!
Green Raffia holds 'clip-on' bird's nest (Restoration Hardware -- Christmas Ornaments :) and the center bowl has shredded paper with a nest.Pretty, too, with a single blossom or a floating candle bobbing along its frilled shores. For fall, I may try a heap of hazelnuts, a plethora of pomegranates, a mound of shimmering holiday ornaments. All look lush and lovely held in the generous embrace of our hand-blown glass fruit bowl. The fancy, fluted trim and tall, footed base add a decorous note to any display.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope I have inspired you to give a Blingy Update to a couple of girls you own -- everyone needs a fresh look for Spring!
