Hand Painted Thrifted Glass Vase
(this post contains affiliate links for your shopping convenience. thank you for your support!)
I started with a simple thrifted glass vase that I had previously painted with a single gold stripe. I tired of that quickly and the vase had been in my basement holding paint brushes. This week I started dreaming in red, white, and blue and began to plan for our 4th of July decor; and a simple plan hatched.
You might recognize that spot in our side yard; it’s my painting spot. ;) I covered the vase completely with Heirloom White spray paint to create a clean canvas.
Next I pulled out the navy blue, Americana Decor Chalky Paint in Honor. I free hand painted on come stripes, aiming for a perfectly imperfect painted look. After the paint dried, I did a little distressing with my sanding block.
I’m pretty sure this fun vase will be a prominent part of our 4th of July mantel decor. Be sure you are following me on Facebook, because I will be decorating our mantel and sharing my best tips this Sunday at 7pm LIVE!
My Facebook Live videos are full of fun, sarcasm, and the occasional good idea, so you don’t want to miss it.
