I went with a tan color because I wanted the vases to look like stone/pottery and mixed it with a K-Cup of coffee grinds and 2 table spoons of baking soda.
How I Made Glass Vases Look Like Pottery!
I had a bunch of glass vases and lying around that just weren't doing it for me anymore. So I decided to upgrade them using some old paint I had laying around.
I wanted the consistence to be chunky to create more texture.
This vase in particular had a lot of pattern but wasn't my style. I feel that the more the texture the original piece has, the better the paint looks.
Then I got to work using a paint brush.
I wasn't too concerned about putting the paint on thin or even uniform since I feel like pottery wouldn't be perfectly formed.
Don't forget the inside! Maybe this step isn't necessary if you plan to put things in the vase but I preferred to do it so that the look was complete.
My 2 year old saw me doing this and wanted in so I recruited her and she was having a lot of fun painting the containers so I kept looking for more and more old glass containers to pain!
I think we ended up with a little more then we needed but its better she had fun with them rather then them collecting dust on a shelf somewhere.
Perfect vases for the Fall in the Air!

Using the same technice as above, I painted the inside and outside of the containers.

I think I love these even more then the originals!
Perfect for my succulents
