DIY: Milk Glass- but not.

I love milk glass things. Who doesn't?
But to be honest, I am just way to cheap to buy it.

So. Enter the thrift store, where I picked up these vases because I loved their shapes.
Add some white spray paint- just cause it smells good.
I'M KIDDING, PEOPLE.
But seriously. I didn't even need to prime them. I just washed and sprayed a few coats on them.

After!

This one is my favorite.

I was squished up there. Moving them from here to there. From there to here. All over the place.

I love the start of my kitchen decor. I love simplicity. I think I will add a couple of platters and pitchers (maybe paint those a bold color, even?) and call it good for those plant shelves! Who invented plant shelves anyway? I hate them. 

But, I love this.

And this.

All that for a few bucks? I'm good with that.

  4. With ya on the plant shelves! Anything I put on mine feels "grandma" just cuz it's on a plant shelf! The vases are a cool idea.

  6. I am always amazed at how people can be so crafty! Those are so pretty! I don't like clutter or plant shelves...but I do love mixing bowls. So mine are filling up with old colorful Pyrex bowls and I kinda like it.

  13. I have been wanting to try something like this. I actually found an awesome serving plate that is white, but wanted to make it higher from the table (it has an opening for a ribbon border that would be better if it were higher!) so i thought i'd put it on a candle holder.. but cannot find a white one. Did you need a certain kind of white paint? I wasn't sure how it would look with reg. white spray paint. Thanks! Love your idea!
