last week's Craft of the Week (Live Gorgeously and her dollar store vases), I just had to go buy some myself. So I took the girls to our local thrift store and paid about $2 total for FIVE of my own vases. Except...although I LOVED Ashleigh's colors and the way they still looked crystal-like because she painted the inside...I decided to play it safe with white and paint the outside so they'd (fingers crossed) look like milk glass. And guess what? They actually do! Here's the before and after for ya:
I've got a sickness.
I've been a bad blogger lately. Please forgive me for my lack of a tutorial on this one. But my crafts recently have been pretty straightforward. Anyway, for these, I simply cleaned them, (I had to use some Goof Off to get the prices off), let them dry completely, and sprayed them with white gloss spray paint. I tried semi-gloss first, but that didn't achieve the milk glass look. So I went over them again with gloss. That's it! I didn't even bother painting the inside past what was visible.
