Dress up your glass furniture
Where can you start with glass furniture? The obvious place to start is with glass tables. Glass tables have been in vogue in home and commercial decorating for years. If you have an older glass-topped table, it may be time to consider giving it new life as backpainted glass. You can apply glass paint in colors or patterns, or even give your glass tabletop a frosted glass look. Backpainted glass is a great way to hide scratches and imperfections in the glass top, and bring your glass table into a fresh new decorating scheme.
Glass tabletops aren’t limited to the dining room. If you have a glass coffee table or glass end tables in your living room, you can give new life to them by applying glass paint. Whether you’re going for colorful or classic, glass paint can help you create a unique look.
You’ll also find glass in a number of other furniture applications – cabinets, bookshelves, breakfronts and hutches may all contain glass. Large mirrors, interior windows and glass partitions may also provide opportunities for decorating with glass. Interior doors may also be made of glass, or may incorporate glass.
You can also find glass hard at work in the kitchen. Many cabinet styles incorporate glass in the door fronts. Glass paint on cabinets can create a stunning new look for your kitchen.
The bathroom is also likely to contain a lot of glass. Glass is an excellent surface in the bathroom. It’s moisture-resistant, impervious and easy to clean and can be cut or shaped to fit even the toughest angles. It also offers great protection behind sinks. A backpainted, backlit glass countertop in the bathroom can create a dramatic look and complement the lighting scheme in what can be a difficult room to decorate!
