This week I did a mini makeover on my living room. After going vase shopping, I decided they were way too pricey. I bought a vase (or two) at Goodwill and decided to give them a makeover to match my living room. This was a really easy makeover for this vase where it only took a few hours to create,  mainly because of drying time.
Project:
Flower Vase Makeover
Time:
10 minutes painting/gluing and 2 hours of drying time
Supplies:
  • Vase
  • Foam Brushes
  • Red Glass Enamel Paint
  • Gold Metallic Paint
  • Glue Gun
How To:
  • Glue dots with a hot glue gun around the top of the bow of the vase for an embellishment.
  • *Tip* Freeze glue sticks before using them to avoid strings.
  • Paint with red paint (or paint of your choice), at least two coats on the outside and inside and allow to dry.
  • Once it’s dry, paint loose strokes with the metallic paint for the distressed look.
  • Dry, done!
Want something a little easier?
I bought this vase at Goodwill for a buck and spray painted it with gold metallic paint. Took less than 60 seconds! I then spray painted some straw ornamental balls to fill it with.
Quick Tip** Got a vase with a chip? Fill it with a hot glue gun, then paint!

  1. Wow these were great ideas? But what do you mean tip freeze glue sticks? I’m tired of the stringy things too…but I’m confused. Freeze just the tip or the whole stick? I feel like an idiot asking this…

    • You just keep the glue sticks in the freezer, take them out when you are ready to use them! Sounds silly but I have heard it works!!

  2. Awesome tips! Love the glue dot idea – never would’ve thought of that.
