Painted Glass Vase

One of my first projects after the kids went back to school was to paint the glass vases. I wanted to use paint that would allow me to put in fresh flowers. I found a couple
ways to do so and here are the links to Martha Stewart and Sand and Sisal. I used Kim's method.

I found these glass vases at the thrift stores and I think they have very pretty and unique features. Hmm... I can't hardly wait to see how these will transform after I paint them. Here is the "Before" picture...

and the "After" picture:

I have never "baked" glass before (well, I guess except the time I was making a casserole), turns out it is such a fun things to do. It was entertaining my curious mind alright.

I love how paints brings out the design of the glass.


Isn't it amazing how 50 cent thrift store finds can look like expensive milk glass for a fraction of the cost? The next time I am at a thrift store, l will definitely be looking for a glass vase with interesting designs! I can't wait to dry different colors.
