Upgrade your normal glassware with this brilliant DIY

Finally, a DIY idea that offers a metallic classy look to tall square drinking glasses. While bright colors and patterns are cute, they aren't appropriate for every occasion or household. These metallic geometric painted glasses have many diverse uses⁠ — they complement table settings during the holidays and may even be used during the sweltering days of summer.
Prior to painting a geometric design on a drinking glass, note that it's essential to have a tall square glass with corners. This project is not appropriate for a cylinder-shaped drinking glass. Experiment with masking tape to create different designs on the glass. Lay two pieces of tape on top of each other to form an "X" design on the corner of a glass. The area below the tape will create the metallic design. Position the tape higher or lower on the glass to alter the look of the design.
