Materials:

  • Black spray paint
  • Sand paper
  • Clear glaze

Instructions:

  1. First, I covered the glass and the brass outer ring with a round piece of craft paper taped in place with painter’s tape. I tucked the edges of the tape down into the edge of the brass ring so that I would be sure to get all of the wood when I painted. Next, I sanded the surface of the wood as there is definitely a finish over the top. Nothing fancy, just a quick sanding all over.
