Window Pain

Window Pain
What started out as a weathered old window has ended up as a weathered old mirror. How in the hay did that happen?
Elizabeth from ECABonline reports that soon after she acquired this leaded-glass window, it suffered a near deadly fall from her mantle. Several panes cracked and the rotting frame totally gave way. She decided all was not lost and decided to just hang the glass alone, but with an extra touch.
She says, “I used Krylon’s Looking Glass paint to turn the window into a “mirror” of sorts – it’s shiny and reflective, but not in the way a brand-new mirror would be; rather, it’s cloudy and antique-looking. I actually rather love the effect.” As do I! Nifty heavy-object-hanging tips over on her site too, check it out!

    that’s gorgeous! i like it better as a mirror, it makes the arches and the details pop.

    Absolutely love it. I wouldn’t have thought to go ahead and take the wood frame off…which makes it so much better.

    I’ve been in the market for two old windows to transform into mirrors and hang in my living room… nice to know that I won’t have to replace the glass with mirror as I originally thought. This turned out beautifully, I love it!!

    OMG! I want one! Love it!

    I actually love the before AND after, though the reflective effect is very nice over the mantle. Great idea. I wouldn’t have thought of this!
