Polished by Paint: Patterned Vase

Sorry to you guys, lots to do this week, so I missed one post. But I got an awesome B&A today!

I love to put up branches, especially in springtime. Compared to flowers, they really fill up a space and have a special grafic impact against a light wall. However, I didn´t have a floor vase for the longest time, but that ended at my last flea market trip.

This is what my beauty looks like now:

I just adore grey - it´s calm, modern and has so many facettes!

This is what the vase looked like before I brushed on a couple of layers acrylic paint:

I guess it is a seventies leftover, based on the colors ( I am so bad at placing styles timewise!) and someone had to give it some TLC very urgently. Good for me, this way I got it cheap.

The patterns were what I was after, and they come out wonderfully in grey!

Have you saved any poor vases yet?

  1. I like the transformation. It looks like new.

  2. Wow, who would have thought that something so modern was hiding away there. (apart form you of course!) I love how this turned out!

  3. Great job! You really have amazing ideas and talent!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! Everyone single one makes me smile like this :DDDDDDDD!
