Here is my inspiration piece. I loved the siz

I was recently browsing and saw a rustic Vessel that caught my eye. Instead of ordering one, I began to search for a vessel of similar proportions that could be transformed. Here are the steps to make an Easy DIY Rustic Vessel from a thrift store find.

First, I spied this cute little ceramic vessel for only $4.00 at a thrift store. It may take some time to find the perfect vessel, but keep your eyes open. Once you find your vessel, be sure to clean it with soap and water. In addition, wipe with rubbing alcohol to remove any greasy film.

See Details for mixing here.

Now using a paint brush, apply a mixture over the entire surface of the vessel. Work in a circular direction around the vase and allow your brush strokes to remain visible. Also, you will want to add some of the texture mixture to the inside of the rim. Then, allow the mixture to dry for several hours.

Continue to work with the color until you like the finish. This may include adding more of the texture mixture or other colors of craft paint.

This step is optional, but if you plan to use your vessel outside, you may want to apply a sealer. Just mist the entire surface with a Matte Clear Spray Sealer.

Finally, here is a close-up view of the texture that was added to the ceramic vessel. See more details to achieve the rustic look here.

I hope you love the results as much as I do. I saved over $100.00 and still have a similar vessel for my Fall Decorating. If you'd like some free fall decorating tips, click here.

    The leaf design texture that you put on the vase, did you use a stencil? It looks so nice.
