Thrift store vase.

A few weeks ago while searching for some interesting containers to make cement planters from and I came across this purple vase at a thrift store.
I loved the texture but it looked like something from the 80’s.
For $2.00 I decided to see if I could give it a little face lift.


I love me some spray paint but I have been painting a whole lot of anything lately.
I pulled out my trusty Rustoleum primer and gold paint in a can and went to work.


The texture of pattern remind me a bit of these little beauties from School House Electric


Have a great weekend!

  7. Ok crazy! There’s something in the thirft store waters! I picked up that same vase as well in a Goodwill here in Phoenix! Still need to spray mine. I couldn’t decide on a color but it is BEAUTIFUL in gold. I actually spotted this vase in the room makeover for Kristen Jackson’s daughter from the Hunted Interior too!
