Rusty beer bottle caps. Strange.
Here's his twin sitting in the garage...
There weren't individual panes. It was actually one big piece of glass with a wood "frame" overlay. Which actually worked out much better for me. I just pried the wood off on one side.
I removed the hinges and a little lock someone had installed at the top.
I used Design Master in Walnut Wood.
One coat down....4 more to go! :)
All done painting. About 5 coats and 3 cans of paint later.
I wanted the clear glass to be a mirror instead. After researching my options I chose to go with a reflective "mirror like" spray paint made by Krylon. It's called Looking Glass.
What I didn't know was there's very few stores that carry it!
When I say "very few" what I really mean is, that I ended up driving from Tampa to Ocala for this spray paint. Any of you not familiar with the west coast of Florida, that's approximately 100 miles. Yes, I know, my best friend said I was crazy too.
I REALLY wanted that spray paint.
Side Note: Hobby Lobby in Ocala is VERY IMPRESSIVE! Very, very much worth the drive!!
The Looking Glass spray paint is crazy really because you spray it on the backside of the glass and it turns the front into a mirror. Now...how does the spray paint know which side is which? I mean, really? ;)
Well, here it is after the mirror spray paint. I was pretty pleased with the way the "mirror" came out. I couldn't really practice too much with the paint before I applied it because it's $10 a can and only 6 oz per can. That, combined with the recommended application of 5 coats....well, I didn't have too much to spare.
....and a fancy piece on the top...which was white, so I spray painted it the walnut color. It wasn't quite dark enough, so I misted a layer of Rustoleum Canyon Black over the top.
