Halloa! Well, the crux of this post is when you cannot buy, make it. Also: How about 2 $ sound as opposed to 37$, for a set of 2 glasses? Good? Yes. I know. It feels blessed.
The other day, while we were out window shopping, you know your favorite thing to do at this time of the year is checking out Christmassy window decor or if you are someone like me, noting silently in your brain, what you can recreate, we came across a set of very pretty wine glasses with silver stems. Obviously, being me, my eyes instantly went onto the detailing. ‘Hmm’, I thought, ‘not silver, not steel but silvered’…’hmm’…’37$??? Whaaa??? For 2 glasses???” Evidently, we thought it was ridiculously priced and after a lot of fiddling that also included forced justifications that did not work, I kept them down and walked off.
Surprisingly, I was not sad at all and I went ahead with a faint smile on my face. Come on girls, we are the DIY republic. I knew I could rip it off.
Here’s the inspiration
Inference: All you need is a reflective paint or a Chrome paint. Simply tape the rest of the glass leaving the stems. Now spray paint it Chrome- give 2 thin coats and let it dry for about an hour. Take a shower and enjoy your port . A true artisan deserves these simple pleasures of life.
Long story cut short: A successful knock off in no time! Enjoy.
