Upcycled Glass Shade with a Vintage Vibe
If you’ve ever done over your bathroom you probably, in all likelihood, replaced the standard glass shades on your light fixture or you replaced the light fixture entirely.
If you did, then you probably have the old glass shades hanging out in your garage gathering dust. If you do, I have a super easy upcycle to share with you today as part of this month’s Thrifty Style Team blog post.
The entire process takes less than an hour (dry time being most of the hour) and the cost is under $10.00.
Faux plant – I bought mine at Michaels for 50% off!
You’re going to want to start with a clean glass shade. I ran mine through the dishwasher but you could hand wash them as well.
Spray paint with the Krylon Sea Glass Paint. I did 3 coats of paint on mine.
Once dry, place the shade in the mason jar lid, add a faux plant to the middle and embellish with some moss.
That’s it! It would be hard to get a much simpler project.
As of right now, I only have one finished – I was trying it out to make sure I liked the results but I will be making two more and using them all over the house! I think I may use faux ferns in the other two….I’ll let you know what I finally do with them.
