DIY Idea: Mercury Glass Lamps

DIY Idea: Mercury Glass Lamps

Remodelista recently posted these beautiful antiqued mercury glass cylinder pendants that are installed on the rooftop lounge at the Thompson Hotel, also available by special order. They reminded us of a recent, and much more cost effective, do-it-yourself project that we saw from Martha Stewart.

While there is no denying that those cylinder pendants are beautiful, they will set you back from between $520 to $720 a pop. Martha Stewart Living's January Issue featured an easy DIY to make mercury glass vases. We think with a little revamping, these vases could easily be transformed into pendant lights.

Using mirror paint and a spray bottle with water, vases and glass candle holders quickly became antiqued mercury glass. With a pendant lamp kit and a glass pendant cover, we think one should be able to recreate the feel of Rogan's cylinder pendants for a fraction of the cost.

Any other ideas for fun ways to repurpose this easy DIY?
