Do-It-Yourself Terrarium Makeover Instructions
Step 1: To begin, move the old glass light fixture to an open area, either outdoors or in a well-ventilated space such as a garage. Cover nearby items with drop cloths to protect them from over-spray when painting.
Step 2: While wearing disposable gloves, wipe the metal of the glass light fixture with a lint-free rag and Krud Kutter® Gloss-Off Prepaint Surface Preparation to prep the surface for paint. No rinsing required.
Step 3: Once completely dry, use low-tack painter’s tape to cover the glass part of the light fixture and coat the metal base with UNIVERSAL® Metallic Spray Paint in the colour of your choice. Hold the can 25-30 cm (10-12′′) from the surface and spray with a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Repeat if necessary.
Step 4: While the light fixture base is drying, coat the large decorative rocks with Rust-Oleum® Specialty Mirror Effect Spray Paint in the colour of your choice. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart. For best results, apply multiple light coats versus one heavy coat. Once your top coat is dry, flip the rock and paint the bottom.
Step 5: Once everything is dry and the painter’s tape has been removed, fill your terrarium with pebbles, painted rocks, moss and air plants…and enjoy!
