Diy Gold Spray Painted Vase...


Hey guys, I've been contributing over at Old Time Pottery's blog and am having a blast!  In case you missed it, here's my Diy spray painted gold vase that literally cost less than $20.

I saw this photo above the other day and was instantly inspired to add a little gold glam to our home's decor.  After all, gold has made a major come back recently.  And I really like this rich, classic look.  So I hit Old Time Pottery in search of the perfect accessory for my transformation.  Here's what I found...

This simple and very purple glass vase above.  I love it's low profile and modern shape.  And it only cost $16.99 - perfect.

Next I grabbed my can of Valspar's Metallic Spray Paint in...brilliant gold - and got to work.  This project was so easy.  Seriously anyone can spray paint.  I just pointed the can about 10 inches from the vase, and sprayed evenly from left to right until the entire vase was covered.

And here's the After...

Ahhh, I am lovin' my new gold vase!  Especially grouped together with these other fun finds.  Okay knocking off a popular design trend by scoring a fabulous find, and then Doing it yourself...Aka, DIY!  Affordable decorating doesn't get any better.
