Spray Painted Glass

I've seen some other bloggers spray paint glass and figured, "hey, I'm handy with the ol' spray paint, I can give this a shot...".

I don't enjoy being humbled.

I got two little glass jars (I think they are a creamer and sugar set but with no tops) from a rummage sale.  For $0.25 each, I thought they were a great find.  At the dollar store I found a plastic vase cut to look like crystal... for a dollar, of course.

Now, I'm a Krylon kind of girl.  I don't have anything against any other spray paint, I've just always liked how Krylon applies and have used it for most projects.  This Rust-oleum spray paint was on sale, so I gave it a whirl.  I mean, how different could two spray paints be?

Ummm... different.  Pretty different.

This spray paint seemed to spit out of the can, leaving uneven coats and little spots of paint blobs.  I wore a sad face that day.  I gave it a few coats to try and fix what the spray paint did to it, and it turned out all right in the end... you really can't tell where it all went to H - E - double toothpicks.

Pardon my french.

In the end, it's fine for my purposes... but I'll be going back to my good ol' Krylon from now on.  Some things are worth the extra dollar.

Krylon didn't pay me for this.  I just constantly feel the need to share opinions and give unwanted advice to the masses.

Thrifty Crafty Girl
I link up at these great parties!


  1. Good to know! I am about to paint a plate and candlestick to make a cake stand!!

  2. That is good to know!!! Those look pretty. :)

  3. Bring it on...I welcome your advice. I gave up on spray paint, perhaps, because I have only every used rust-oleum. I may have to give Krylon a whirl...or a spray :)

  4. I'm always one for unwanted advice especially if it helps in the long run. I've used both and have to say there is a difference. Your thrifty treasures look great to me.

  5. These look great. Will look to see what Krylon is over here!

  6. Your pieces turned out great. I've been painting today, but not very well!

  7. I love how they turned out. Like you, I always use Krylon. It works great!

  8. OH how pretty !! I love this Idea , I'm thinking Pink or blue with flowers for a baby shower I have coming up.

  9. Oops almost forgot http://funtoredo.blogspot.com/ I'll be trying these beauties out this weekend and I'll post them to my blog with a linky to you :) Have a wonderful day doll.


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
