Check it, yo.
And this is what it looked like before:
It is a Pottery Barn vase. I spray painted a Pottery Barn vase. Gasp!
Here’s the how-I-did-it down low.
My supplies were Krylon primer, Krylon Glitter Blast in Grape Glitz, and a medium grit sanding block.
I used an old, clean sock to wipe any dust and debris from the vase, lightly sanded it and then sprayed a couple of coats of primer.
The next day I covered it with the Glitter Blast. I’m not expert with paint so to the naked eye it is obvious this was not done by a pro. No prob. I’ll “fix it” before Halloween next year ‘cause I should definitely be better by then
In my best amateur skills, I sprayed 4-5 thin layer coats of the paint. I waited a couple of minutes in between each coat so I wouldn’t glob it all up. After 24 hours of dry time I set it up on my dining room table.
I bought these two tablecloths from the dollar store.
The hat, pumpkin and black crow were bought on clearance from previous years. I also used a small piece of cardboard to help hold the hat steady. You like?
Voila. There is my dining room table a la All Hallow’s Eve mode. I don’t do table settings, just centerpieces. Table settings feel too fancy smanchy for me and my laid back family. I love looking at others though! And although Halloween is just a few days away, anyone could easily put something like this together for their Halloween festivities come next Wednesday. Until next time. :)
