This Little Old Thing...

I had this old vase sitting in the back of my cabinet - I am pretty sure it has been there for years - and decided to give it a new look.

So I spray painted the vase black. And once dry, I traced the outline of a fleur-de-lis (the cutout I got at Michaels for .99). I then painted it white with my go-to white acrylic paint.


It was a bit too white, so I pulled out my trusty Miniwax Gel Stain


and gave it a great new look...and the best part, was I had everything already on-hand. It always amazes me what a little black spray paint and some stain can do!

I love that you reused what you had...my favorite kind of decorating.

Wow, what a transformation! I have a lot of fleur-de-lis stuff at my house so of course I love what you did!
