Painted DIY vases

Do you have an abundance of glass vases, and you aren’t sure what to do with them? You can transform them in an instant with spray paint. Check out two simple ways to paint glass vases. These simple projects will turn your vases from blah to stylish.

Transform Your Vase With Chalky Finish Spray Paint

You can paint a vase your favorite color with a can of Krylon Chalky Finish Spray Paint. First, you need to wipe the vase with a damp paper towel. Once you clean off the dust, dry the vase with a clean paper towel. Then, shake the can of spray paint and paint the vase with overlapping lines.

Add the first coat and then wait 60 seconds. Next, re-shake the can of spray paint and apply a second coat. Continue applying coats until you have full coverage. Most vases require two to three coats of paint to achieve the desired effect.

Then, apply Krylon Matte Sealer Chalky Finish to the vase. This will seal in the color, so your vase will maintain the new look.

Change It Up With a Two-tone Vase

Do you want to make a statement with your vases? If so, consider using two colors instead of one.  You’ll need a can of Krylon Chalky Finish Paint in Classic White and another can in any color you want. If you want the vase to stand out, consider using textured paint, such as Krylon Stone Textured Finish in Limestone.

You’ll start this project by cleaning and drying your vase. Then, apply three coats of white spray paint. Give it a full two hours to dry.

Once it’s dry, grab a roll of delicate surface tape. Apply the tape to the vase to mark the areas you don’t want to paint with texture or color. For instance, if you want the top of the vase to be white and the bottom to have a color, use tape to block off the top.

Next, grab a paper towel and cover the area that you do not want to paint. Secure it in place with tape so you don’t accidentally spray the wrong section of the vase.

After the paper towel is in place, paint the rest of the vase. You’ll likely need two to three coats of paint. Let the final coat dry for 15 minutes, and then remove the tape and paper towel. Then, stand back and admire your work. You’ll be impressed with the results.

Both of these projects are a cinch to complete, and they will make your vases look new. Don’t be surprised if you end up tackling all of your vases over the course of a weekend. It’s so easy that you’ll keep going until all of your vases look fresh and new.
