Current Inspiration: Mercury Glass Lamps

I have been in love with Mercury Glass Lamps for some time now but, like most out there, can’t quite come to terms with some of the prices!

While I love the options at Pottery Barn, there are some great alternatives at Target, all for under $50! At that rate, you can afford to have a few of these lamps throughout your place!
Are you a DIYer like me? I can’t believe I stumbled upon this DIY Mercury Glass Lamp idea! It seems really simple and could be done with any glass, according to the directions. I’m thinking an Apothecary Jar!!

The secret weapon is Krylon’s Looking Glass Spray Paint, which will create the mirror like finish! You also need a lamp or jar with an opening since you will be spraying the inside!

I’m thinking I might have to give this a try! Look out for a future post on this!

What are your thoughts on Mercury Glass Lamps? Have you found any good deals on them recently?

Today’s Pickins:
1.       Obsessed with this Oscar de la Renta dress might be an understatement. 
2.       This Grinch Punch Recipe would actually be great for Halloween! 
3.       Free Chevron Binder Covers! Give those folders/ binders/ whatever a mid-semester update! 


  1. Love the Target lamps!! Seriously, Target has the best deals on everything!

  2. You can do some of the coolest things with Krylon spray paint! That a def try DIY! Love that you can find such cheaper options at Target too!
