Gorgeous Shabby Chic Furniture Refurb Using Krylon Looking Glass Paint

I recently refurbed an old dresser and night stand using Krylon Looking Glass Paint. It turned out pretty amazing. I was initially going for a mirror-like finish since Looking Glass paint is used to give glass a mirrored finish. Apparently, it doesn't work that way. Painting on an opaque surface gives a different finish. It's more of a gun metal. I did purposely go lighter and heavier on different parts of the two pieces to give it a bit of an uneven finish. I love how it turned out.

    I saved this article a few years ago. Used your instructions to create a beautiful dresser for my S-I-L. Now, re-purposing a display cabinet for my husband's Locksmith Shop. I dug DEEP to locate this pin! NOTHING like this method! 😊
