WHAT I'VE PAINTED LATELY

The spring is always incredibly busy for me at work. Closing out the school year is no joke! That makes it hard to dive into any major projects, but I'm never too busy for a can of spray paint. :-)


A few weeks ago I decided to clean out in the attic before the Alabama heat sets in, and I brought down this small mouth vase. I've had it for so long, I can't remember where it came from. If I had to guess, though, I'd say T J Maxx.


Most of my vases and jars have larger openings and require a good many more stems or flowers to make them look full.


But this one is easier to fill because of the small opening.


I decided I wanted a true white for the color, and this is what I ended up using. I picked mine up at Home Depot. Of course you can always get it from Amazon, too.


Before I started painting, I wiped down the vase really well with a damp paper towel. I then dried it off and started the transformation.


The paint went on great, and I didn't have any issues (other than the bugs that always show up when I'm trying to paint!).


I'm happy to report that I like it all over again. It feels brand new. The only problem I've had is that I like it in every room. :-) In the two pictures above, the vase is in a vignette in the living room atop a round skirted table. I rarely show this room. The lighting in there is not the best.

The picture below is the dining room.


Needless to say, it's no longer in the garage sale pile from the attic. A little spray paint goes a long way.

Here are a few of my other spray paint projects:







Two more days until summer... Are you as ready for it as I am??

  1. Love the transformation Kathryn! The vase looks so pretty. I love the photo of it on your dining room table with the tall branches. Gorgeous! Sadly, they don't sell spray paint in Chicago (graffiti issues)--I have to use a brush which isn't nearly as effective.

    1. Really? I had no idea!! I spray paint so much, it would be hard to do without it. Thank you for the kids words!

    2. Of course I meant "kind words."
