Sometimes we are given goodies that we love but become dated over time. This was the case for this vase that my hubby had in his house before we met. As soon as I saw it I did too but it didn’t fit into our decor so today for International Bloggers Club I’m sharing how to give an old pottery vase a farmhouse look.

How To Give An Old Pottery Vase A Farmouse Look

This vase is just one of the many things I’ll be making over of hubby’s things in the coming months and I hope it inspires you too. Its much less exspensive than going out and replacing your home decor and all can be acheived with a lick of paint.

Supplies needed:

 

Step 1 – Mix your milk paint in a ratio of one to one with warm water in a plastic cup or jar. To see how to mix milk paint you can find a video here. Leave for 10 minutes to combine, meanwhile clean down your piece using TSP. Wait until completely dry and then using your brush give your piece 2 coats of milk paint, letting each coat dry completely.

Step 2 –  Dampen your old rag slightly and begin wet distressing to your liking. Once dry using your wax brush apply wax to seal in all of your hard work.

  1. I would have so kept that vase too. It’s got beautiful lines and like Marie said, thank goodness for paint. And the way you’ve wrapped the wooden beads around adds that lovely extra special touch to the makeover
