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.
- A piece of old pottery that you would like made over.
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Farmhouse White
- Paint Brush
- Fusion Mineral Paint – TSP
- Old rag
- Wax Brush
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Beeswax
- Plastic cup
- Mini Whisk
- Farmhouse Wooden Bead Garland
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.
Wrap your Farmhouse Wooden Bead Garland around the neck of your vase. Find your favourite faux flowers pop them in and your all done! A brand new vase all ready to now decorate with.
