A Quick Little Project
I bought this beautiful little vase (about 8" tall) at a thrift store recently. It was very nice just the way it was, but I wanted to add a little more dimension and color, as well as have it stand out from our cream colored walls (which I can't change right now because we're in a rental). I painted on some brown craft paint mixed with Liquitex Gloss Medium to thin it out a bit, making sure to get in all the little crevices and grooves. Then I wiped off the excess with a dry paper towel (in the future I will buy some rags to devote just to my projects).
I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
