Five Minute Friday-Painted Vases

Hey friends, Happy Friday!  I am working a long 12 hour shift in the ER today, but I stopped here first to share a five minute Friday idea with you.  :)  One of my favorite things to shop for at my local thrift store is vases.  I love to look for those with fun textures, add some color, and display painted vases like art throughout my home.

Even better if they have fresh flowers in them.  ;)

These three were purchased for $1-2 a piece.  I painted them first with flat black spray paint.  After that was dry, I added a coat of Rustoleum’s Heirloom White.  When that coat was almost dry, I lightly sanded to bring out the black.  I love the way this color combo brings out the texture of the vases; but you can use any color combo you like!

If you like tulips, these are from Michael’s and are VERY realistic.

  1. Love ’em! The white lets the flowers themselves stand out and make a big splash! Gorgeous on a shelf or table!
