After searching High and Low for a mysterious product called "Krylon Mirror-Like Spraypaint" during the Christmas season and beyond, I finally gave up. I declare that this paint is nowhere to be found in the great state of Minnesota.
And, call me a cheapo, but I absolutely refuse to buy spraypaint online and pay shipping charges. No can do. But without that paint, you really can't recreate the adorable mercury-glass lookalikes that are popping up all over blogland (apparently these bloggers do not live in MN).
So, after waiting for 2 months, I finally caved.
Say hello to the newest member of the Decorative Baubles of the Marx Household Association. Kind of a tongue twister, I know. =)
I love this little vase/candleholder/dust catcher so much. I think it might be a candidate for our new bedroom makeover as well! But for now, it's sitting on our dining room table all cute and mercury-glassy.
So my question of the day for you is:
Have you ever been unable to complete a project, and just run out and bought the thing you were trying to make?
