easy vase makeover

i was doing a little spring cleaning (in fall) and this vase ended up in my pile to go to the thrift store.  
it's a nice vase but just a little too dark and I have been trying to lighten up our living room. 
 it is a really dark room.
as i packed it up to go, i had a little idea...
i used my little acrylic paints and painted it all a mixture of mostly white with just a little bit of yellow. 
oh, i should say my little helper did most of the white.
then i just added a few stripes of a couple of different colors.
lastly, once it dried, i sprayed it with a gloss clear coat...
such a quick easy project.  
i really like little projects that can be done in pretty much less than an hour.


  1. love it! love your little bronze owl too! I'm always on the search for cute little shelf owls.

  2. It turned out so cute! I truly love quick projects myself - makes me feel like I really accomplished something!

    Happy Thanksgiving!


  3. Oo! I love this!!!! And you're a great photographer. :)
