Today I'm sharing my fall living room.
Well its mainly the fireplace area but I do have other parts of the space to share.
I'm also sharing this old window I gave almost a mercury glass effect. I wanted a mirror but not the reflection part. I basically just wanted it to reflect light to make the space brighter but didn't want the reflection of the ceiling fan showing when you looked at it.
Before I get to the window....I kept the mantel simple. The bicycles were finds that I found on different days. Yet they are the same. I just love them that I wanted to keep them up. Two simple black bids and the gourd we grew in our non garden ( we didn't even know )
I found this Mid Century Modern leather chair for free. There is a small slit in the seat but it doesn't bother me. I keep my fluffy throw on it along with a pillow. I also brought out these broken lanterns and put these owl figures inside for Halloween.
I'm still not able to find my camera charger....I'm about to just buy a new camera. The I used for these photos just doesn't work well in our dark home.
To make my old window get a bit of the mirror look and to have slight reflection I first cleaned the glass and scraped any loose paint away from the area. I bought the Krylon looking glass mirror spray paint. I picked it up at Walmart because it was cheaper there. I followed the instructions and did this outside and wore a mask because it smells bad. I also had a spray bottle with water to give it a bit of a worn look.
I spray water on the glass in some areas and then sprayed on the mirror paint. I let it dry and did it again. I could of used vinegar to get more of a mercury glass but I liked the worn mirror look I was getting. I used the whole can on this one window.
After completely drying I sprayed a clear sealer on the window frame to hold the chippy look.
I really am please with how it came out. I defiantly want to do this on more windows.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you would of seen me share this gazelle head I bought at Homegoods in August. I got a discount of its $39 asking price because he was missing a ear. I'm still going to make him ears I just keep forgetting.
I hung him up over the computer cabinet in our living room.
I also spray painted this wood elephant which has nothing to do with fall.
Here is the window before
I had it outside for some time so the paint chipped away on its own.
That is it for my fall living room. For now.
Hopefully soon I can find my camera charger....or get a new one because i
