Faux Frosted Glass; Guest

23 May 2010

I love the look of this frosted glass.  It is like the icing on the cake.  I just want to eat it up it looks so good.
This was done by Carolyn at My Back Yard Eden.


Do you ever just walk into a room and notice things that you never noticed before, but have been there all along?  This happened to me when I got back from visiting my Mom for Easter.  I walked into our Master bathroom and noticed for the first time, that I could see everything inside this cabinet here.

Peek a boo bathroom cabinet
Aw…gee, would you like to borrow some dental floss, or maybe a feminine hygiene product?   Perhaps you’d rather have a Q-tip?

UnmentionablesFloss today? 
This cabinet is the only storage we have in this bathroom, so all of this non-displayable stuff has to go here.  And since we only have two bathrooms, when we entertain, someone invariably ends up here in our master bathroom.  (No doubt, checking out what brand of dental floss we prefer.)

I thought about lining the glass with fabric, but then I remembered seeing Frosted Glass spray paint at Home Depot.   Bingo!

Rust-oleum Frosted Glass Paint  
I sketched up and then cut out some leaves and vines.

I arranged them in a pattern I liked and using spray adhesive, affixed them to the back side of the glass door.

Then I sprayed on two coats of the Frosted Glass paint.

Make sure you have a friend nearby to help you watch the paint dry.  In only a few minutes, it’s dry and you can peel the design off.

Admire how pretty it is when the sun shines through the glass.

I love how it turned out.  I’ve got to say that this was one of the easiest, quickest , most satisfying projects I’ve done in a while.

I replaced the wood pulls with some brushed nickel ones we had leftover from our kitchen remodel.  I also reversed the way the door was hinged.  (I just love these IKEA products.  They are so well designed.)  Now you’ll just have to wonder what brand of dental floss we buy!DSC_0047

I do have plans to use some of this in my house. What do you think?

I bought that spray to do my shower doors and then chickened out and returned it!

Thanks for sharing this! I've been looking for this stuff to frost a glass door in our house. I guess I'm going to be making a run to Home Depot!

that is beautiful. I do not like glass cabinet fronts at all just because cabinets are for hiding things.

How great the transformation is with a little spray! I love anything in a spray can from hairspray to spray paint! It really can make such a big difference.

That turned out real nice. My neighbor did her front panels that way and it is very pretty. Thanks for sharing. Love & blessings from NC!

I really love what you did! I'm so excited that Rustoleum has such a product! Can't wait to come up with ideas using the frosted glass spray in my home!
