The last major project I undertook last weekend was some painted vases. As has clearly become a theme with my projects, my goal was to add another pop of color to our beige apartment. I can’t-can’t-can’t wait for the day when Adam and I have a home with walls I can paint. I’m so over beige wallpaper. But this is our home for now, and most of the time it’s great, so if it takes a handful of dollars and an afternoon on Pinterest to make some fun projects to beautify our home.
So – vases. More shopping at Michael’s! I picked up five small vases in various sizes and shapes, some not-super-fake-looking multi-colored silk flowers, and a few different colors of acrylic paint (some of which were the ones I was already getting for the painting). The rest of the process was really simple.
Pour in some paint, swirl it around to cover the vase (you could use a brush in some of them but I was just veerrrry patient), and set them upside-down to dry.
