Upcycled Garage Sale Find

A few weeks ago our subdivision held its annual garage sale.  Since we didn't have anything to sell, my mother-in-law I drove around and hit a few to see what we could find. My favorite find was this vase with a ProFlowers tag on it.

I loved the "bubbled" look but not the color. For 50 cents I figured it worth buying and upcycling it into something more my style. I got out my white spray paint and my new spray paint station (an old box from the garage) and gave it a few coats.

I love how it now looks like a vintage hobnail vase!

I picked up some marked down flowers from the grocery store (I spent under $5.00 for a dozen beautiful red roses! Crazy right?) as well as a patriotic placemat and it sits so prettily on the dining room table for the upcoming July 4th holiday!

  17. Great idea - at first glance I was thinking milk glass. I'm thinking you could spray it gold for the holidays.
