I've seen a lot of tutorials on DIY antiqued mercury glass, but I just love the look of this one. And it seems pretty simple, to boot! All it takes is some looking glass spray, some vinegar and water in a spray bottle, and a paper towel. Well, and your glass, of course!
The folks over at 17 Apart show how to get this trendy yet timeless look, step by step. They also tried the technique on a variety of surfaces and types of glass, which is great — you can see how labels and grooves in the glass look after they're done. Mercury glass has such a charming look for so many different uses — vases, lamps, decorative bowls… if it's glass, it can be done!
