Trash To Treasure Painted Vases

Hello friends!  Wow has it been a whirlwind of a week.  So so many exciting things going on here.  I will have some GREAT news to share with you soon.

Let’s focus on the today, though, because it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday!

I have a fun, easy, and cheap project to share today.  If you’re an avid thrift store shopper like me, then you know that there is no shortage of interesting vases on the shelves of your favorite place.

Now, you may be thinking…”Kimm, there is no shortage of vases in my cupboard, either…” and that may be true, but if they are just sitting there, waiting to be loved, then you need to do something about that.

For this project, I bought two $1 vases at the thrift store because they had some amazing texture, AND I pulled one out of the cupboard because it also has amazing texture, but the color was boring.  See?

I bought this vase at Target last year, but because it is “white white”, it doesn’t really fit anywhere in our home.




My first step was to spray paint this beautiful texture with flat black paint.  I wanted black to be my base.  Then I brushed on a coat of chalky paint, and after it dried, sanded well to bring out the black and the detail.

I really love how they turned out, the finish looks a little like painted iron that has weathered through the seasons.

Vases this pretty should sit out even if you don’t have flowers for them.

If you love them, put a pin in them!  ;)
