In one of my very first blog posts I featured some of the great things I found during a late winter trip to Home Goods out in the ‘burbs. One of my finds was this very orange tall vase:
I loved the pattern on it, but knew that the orange wasn’t for me–especially as I was already moving away from the blue and orange living room color scheme. So I tucked this gal away behind the sofa until recently, when I came across another orange vase that I owned–again with a great pattern–and figured it was time to do something about them. So I gathered them both up and took their “before” picture:
Then I took them outside with a can of glossy white spray paint and went to town. Just a couple of coats later, I had two beautiful new white vases which are much better suited to the new living room color scheme of blues and teals with lots of neutrals. I love it when a project actually is simple! Here they are showing off their new wardrobe:
I’m pleased that both vases retained their texture so nicely. After these two turned out so nicely I’ve had to stop myself from wanting to spray paint everything in sight! I haven’t yet decided where they’ll end up, but I’ve got a few ideas. I’d love to use the tall one as an umbrella stand in the entryway, but neither DH or I have any old-timey non-collapsing umbrellas to store, so I’ll have to figure out a better way to use that one! I’ll for sure post once they find a new home.
Have you spray painted anything lately?
