Not So Square Vase

I spotted this vase during a thrift store visit for $3.99.  Just a plain, simple vase.. back in the day when something was plain it was considered a “square”.   I thought it was cute..I didn’t have a square vase so I figured why not..

Being cooped up inside because of the weather has made your thrifty girl go a little paint crazy and decided to snazz it up a bit..  First let’s tape it up…

It’s going in my dining room so I chose a copper paint… Paint is all done and it’s dry..  and  I added some crystals and fresh flowers and “VOILA!!!!”

A closer look….

The copper blends well with the artwork above it…

Now this vase isn’t so square after all….  (and to think I had it for sale at the yard sale.. I’m so glad it didn’t sell because I wouldn’t have this lovely vase)

Table Update

I’m taking a break from my Breaking Bad marathon (yes – your Vintage Girl is hooked – thanks to Amir & Amina) to begin making a few changes in my Dining Room..  This room has been needing a few updates.. the color scheme is a bit off).  I started with this corner table just to see if I’m headed in headed in the right direction.

This table seems to blend into the wall.  I decided it’s time for a change.  I love the wall color and didn’t want to change it so, I’ll start with the furniture.   I know you’re probably saying “Oh no.. it’s wood – don’t”  I took a deep breath, closed my eyes, aimed and began to spray. The table is being painted a creamy almond color.   So here’s the before:

Here’s the after:

Time to get it back in place:

I think it’s starting to look better already…The corner looks brighter.. and the table isn’t  hidden in the wall.

I have to admit I was a bit scared about it, but I’m happy I did it.
