In case you're all wondering about the cream colored, thrift store vases on my bookcase,
you're in luck
I'm spilling my secret...
When you're thrifting, focus on the shapes you like, don't pay any attention to the exisiting
color or pattern - we're going to use the #1 product a DIYer couldn't live without!
If you see a 'pair' of vases in a great shape....jackpot!!!
I did these in a matte finish then used fine grit sandpaper to give them a rustic look.
(you'll understand what that means when the big secret is revealed)
Or, one in the color you're actually looking for...double jackpot!!!
You can even paint new pieces, this pair came from my favorite store,
Home Goods, clearance rack - they were a peachy color.
I used a cream color followed by clear gloss.
These will be showing up on my Christmas mantel...soon!
simple spray paint.
If you missed them on the bookcase all spiffed up, go here.
Happy painting, friends!
