Last week I went a bit spray paint crazy but out of everything I made this gorgeous painted glass vase is my favourite thing!
Ages agos, I went to B&Q for a paintbrush and came home with a can of copper spray paint with a vague idea of upcycling an old table but I just never got around to doing it so last week I got out the spray paint to crack on with a few other projects I’d had in my head that I wanted to try. One of the first things I want to do was to try and glam up a pretty boring glass vase that I bought for about £2 – I’m sure it’s from Ikea but it could be from Tesco to be honest. One of the two for definite though!
How to make a DIY Painted Glass Vase
I started my little make-over by making a band around the middle with some wide masking tape that we had in.
Then I used the can of spray paint ( I bought Rustoleum Metallic in the copper colour from B&Q which was about £9) and sprayed a thin layer over the vase. I gave that a couple of minutes to dry and then gave it another light coating of paint.
It took about three coats to get full coverage on the glass but when it was fully covered, I just left it to dry completely.
When it was dry, I unpeeled the strip of masking tape and was please to see that the line of paint was really crisp and neat. There was a little bit of paint that had smudged but I was able to wipe that off with just a sponge and some water.
My DIY Painted Glass Vase looks really good and I think (although I may be biased) it looks like it cost a lot more than £2 now!
