Going Silver – My Favorite Spray Paints

Sharing is caring!

Many of you know I love spray paint – I’ve almost had a motto of “give me a can of spray paint, and I can change the world”.
Although brass is making a comeback, I haven’t got onboard yet with it again.  I lived with it through the 80’s so I’m a silver girl for now.candle named
I have 2 favorite at the moment – both by Krylon.  Have you tried these?

Looking Glass Mirror-Like Paint has been around for a while and is great to give you a very shiny, mirror look.  
One of my favorite things is to use it with just a little water sprayed on it to give it a mercury glass affect.  I love mercury glass but it can be so expensive.looking glassI recently broke a silver candlestick from Ikea but didn’t throw it away.  Just had to figure out what to do with it.ch topBy turning it upside down with the broken part on top, I could make a candle or cake stand out of it.

I used a candle holder plate from Dollar Tree (one of my favorite stores).candle plateI spray painted it with the Looking Glass paint, sprayed just a little water on it and now I have a top for my broken candle holder.  (It is silver – there was a glare that made a gold tone).  Don’t you love my fancy way to spray paint.  Old tin cans and vinyl tablecloths purchased after the holidays or at yard sales.paint plate
After letting it dry overnight, I used E6000 to glue the plate onto the candle holder.stacked

Another little project I did recently was painting this Dollar Tree ceramic pumpkin (sorry no before pic).  
Don’t you just love how a few coats of spray paint can make such a difference?pumpkin
I’m not sure if this is a new color, but Krylon has recently add MAXX ultimate coverage to their lines of paint.  As I love silver, I saw Metallic in it and thought I would give it a try.maxx
This is a before and after of a set of bookends I had purchased at some point for I’m sure not too much money.  The dark finish wasn’t showing in my bookcase so, you know me, I brought out the spray paint.  Great time to try this new Metallic and so happy with results.ba top
Wow – what an updated look!ch baNow what else can I spray paint silver?  What about you?
Here’s a quick project with spray paint too.

    1. The small can (same size as looking glass) of Krylon gold is good. I used it to spray paint a record for my husband to look like a gold record. He’s a record collector so we were doing some decorating in his room. Wasn’t too brassy looking as some gold paints are.
