Bathroom Light Fixtures in Metallic Glaze

After using metallic glaze for the first time on a pair of side tables  I sort of wanted to paint everything in my house with the stuff.  When we bought our house, we redid most of the bathroom -- but we kept the ancient lights that hang on both sides of the vanity mirror.  
Now I know you can buy new cheap ones at Home Depot for about $8 but I thought these might look kind of cool painted.  And then after using the glaze...I knew glaze was what they needed.

 Not bad.  I think we will keep them for awhile.

Morning View

My drive to work in the morning.  It tends to get a bit creepy looking with the wind blowing the snow over the road and the sun starting to come up. 

And a quick FYI, I am hoping to get some updates posted this weekend. However my Instagram stays updated almost daily for those that want to check it out.

Metallic Side Tables

I'll be honest, I haven't been crafting much lately.  Not because I'm done with it but because all of my extra energy is going towards trying to put a wedding together.  I'm torn on whether to post wedding things until after the wedding.  I don't want to spoil the whole thing!  So I'll just keep quiet about it until after the wedding.

On to the task at hand...

I painted both of these side tables entirely black and then used a metallic glaze on the body and the legs.  

This was my first time using a metallic glaze.  I was a bit skeptical at first but this will definitely be something I use more frequently in the future.

Chalkboard Book Shelf - For The Kiddo

This little book shelf was actually a mistake.  From the moment I received it, I had no clue what to do with it.  I almost threw it away. 

But a couple of coats of chalkboard paint on the top and ASCP on the rest, I knew it was the perfect little book shelf for my daughters bedroom.
