Thrift Store Vase Revamp

I have been wanting something on my dining room table for months. I think it has been bare since Easter. I went scavenging in the garage and found a vase my Mom had given me a while back. She picked it up at a thrift store. I transformed it this morning and now my dining table is finally dressed for summer.
This was the vase before the make-over...
I spray painted it cream... Then I used an antiquing medium and rubbed it on the vase with a soft cloth to give it an aged look. It took me less than an hour to do and I am so happy with the results...and don't the hydrangeas look real? I bought them at Michael's a couple of weeks ago 70% off!


  1. Awesome as always! I wish I could come to your house right now and see what you've done with it...miss you!

  2. Oh lucky girl! I love how it turned out and it looks fabulous on your table. Like I always say... good things come to those who wait!

  3. Molly, that is awesome! Don't you just love it when projects come together so inexpensively and yet it looks like it came out of a catalog? You did a great job! I'm gonna rush to M's right now and see if I can get some hydrangeas that cheap! I also loved your recipe book! Clever girl...I finished my birdcage book, come take a peak! Have a wonderful weekend!
    Live Creatively! Patti
