She says: DIY Faux-Milkglass Container

I have been looking for vintage milk containers for ages! I managed to find some in a Taiwan lifestyle shop, Working House, but that’s not enough. So I am so thrilled to find this DIY tutorial!

Discovered through Ruffledblog..

What you’ll need:
– Assorted vintage glass vases (I found mine at a local thrift store, 9 pieces for $5)
– Rubbing Alcohol (optional)
– Brown craft paper or newspaper
– Latex gloves
– White glossy spray paint (I used Krylon Multipurpose Indoor/Outdoor Gloss White)

Instructions:

Step 1: Use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball or paper towel to remove any sticky residue from the vases. Wash vases with soap and dry completely.

Step 2: Lay down paper on your spraying surface in a well-ventilated area. Shake spray paint for 1-2 minutes before spraying. Shake between sprays as well. Wearing gloves, work from side to side spraying vases with spray paint. Don’t get too close to the vase to avoid drips/runs (No need to spray paint the inside of the vases, just do the tops; spraying the inside then using them for flowers with water will cause the inside paint to flake off).

Step 3: Rotate vase until covered, let dry a few minutes before adding a second coat. Let dry completely

I am totally gonna try this at home!

Happy Easter everybody!
