I found this vase at a thrift store for $7. I loved the shape and the double handles!
DIY Aged Vase
Decor can get expensive so one of my favorite things to get from the thrift store are vases because you can make them look however you want! Just find one you like the shape/form of. Let me show you the method I used to get this aged look!
The first thing I did was spray paint using this Rustoleum chalked in the charcoal color!
I loved the look of this color!!!
I let this dry overnight before doing the next step! Now, if you haven't seen this method before, this next step may seem a little old. You're going to need to dig up some dirt and mix it with water to make mud. Weird, I know! But just trust me! I just put the dirt in a bucket, added water, and mixed!
And now, for the fun part! There's no strategy to this part, you just rub the mud on the vase until it has the coverage/look you like! Here is how mine looked after applying the mud!
I let the mud dry for a couple hours and then I used a damp paper towel to rub off some of the dried dirt in certain areas until you get the look you're going for!
That's all!! If you want to see the full tutorial, you can find it on my IG page @ouraesthetic_abode under my "Quick DIYs" highlight!
