Several months ago I purchased a vase at Goodwill for $5 thinking that I would bring it home and spray paint it gold (because you know how much I loved gold during the winter months… check it out here!). Alas, I ended up finding an awesome gold mercury glass vase at West Elm for just $10, so I used that instead. Since spring is here, I decided it was high time I get the Goodwill vase spruced up and put to good use.
The limey green color of the vase isn’t the worst color I’ve ever seen, but it’s not my favorite color to display in my home. So, I grabbed a brush and some left over paint from a recent desk refurbish project I was working on (more on that later here), and got to painting.
Next I bought some paper doilies (just $1 at Dollar Tree!) and cut the lacey looking parts out.
Then I grabbed my trusty Modge Podge and got to designing, adding the paper lace in a pattern that softens the dark gray color of the paint.
When I was pleased with the overall pattern, I went back and modge podged some more to get everything in place. I let it sit for a few hours to dry and now it’s the perfect vessel for the entryway to our home!
Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. | 2 Timothy 2:21
