Spray paint is the bomb! It’s a fast and easy way to make a quick change to just about anything. Like these white vases.
I bought two of these vases a couple of months ago from a grocery store when they were on sale for $5 each. And they looked pretty cute holding my pink flowers. For awhile.
Until today when I decided I needed some gold stripes in my life. You know how that goes. You’re just sitting around, minding your own business, looking at a vase or two when it hits you. That vase is naked! It needs gold stripes. Bam. Just like that.
I grabbed one of the vases and took it out to the garage. I wiped it off with some rubbing alcohol to make sure the paint would adhere before wrapping painter’s tape around the bottom to start making stripes. Using the width of the tape to determine how far apart to paint the stripes, I just sort of eye-balled it before adding the next strip.
Once the tape was in place, I sprayed it with primer to give the paint something to adhere to. The primer took less than two minutes to dry at which point I picked out a gold spray paint from my collection. Yes. I have a collection. Today, I used Krylon’s 18kt Gold Spray Paint because it was closest to the shade I was hoping to achieve.
It only took one coat (seriously!) and we had an adorable new vase.
Love it! Can’t stop looking at it! I might actually have to paint the second one…I like it that much!
Do you ever just get the urge to spray paint stuff? Or spray paint all the things? Me, too 🙂
