The vase project began when I needed a way to pull out the deep navy blue tones in our living room rug. I needed something that would add to the room, and not be overwhelming. I decided to look into purchasing some different blue vases, upon seeing the enormous price tag attached to them I knew that purchasing them was simply not an option. So I slept on it, and decided to go thrift storing for vases, and see what I could do with some spray paint and some vases. I decided that my investment would be low, so if I didn't like it, it wasn't a big deal. Now I did my vases long before I ever started my blog, or started reading them so I have no before pictures, sorry!

|I like the different textures, it really makes a difference when you put it all together .|
|Some of my favorite textured vases.|
|Non textured vases add interest with their shapes.|
|A textured and non textured vase, so you can get a good comparison.|
|You want to get vases with varying heights and depth as well.|
When you go looking for vases, keep the color you want them to be in mind. It is easier to go darker for a vase, than to go lighter. However, if you find a dark green vases you adore but want it lighter don't worry. You should just apply a white base coat before you desired color. Good luck, and happy hunting!
I'm hoping to have a new post with some updates that we've done today and will be doing over this wonderful long weekend!
