DIY: Modern Vases

More and more I see solid colored ceramic textured vases and I love 'em.  I have quite a few myself, but the bigger ones come packing a heavier price tag.  I was looking up ideas to mock this look using recycled materials when I stumbled upon a fantastic tutorial from Redbook Magazine.  It's so simple, and can be done in no time at all! Party coming up needs vases? Just save those wine bottles my friend.  Here's the finished product:
 
Aren't these great? I keep a pretty colorful house, and let me be the first to say that a bright pop of white in the accessories department really adds a lot to a room.  These are just my style and my budget.  Head over to Redbook Magazine for the full tutorial - it's as easy as clean, puff paint, and spray. 

Along the same lines - here are a few other projects I scrounged up from the interweb.  Cans with puff paint, plastic pots with puff paint. They look great after. Clay pots would look great too! Here are two from the blog, Changing My Destiny:
If you do go with something plastic, be sure to grab a spray paint that says it will adhere to plastic.  This way it won't flake. If your color doesn't come in such a paint, just grab plastic primer. Then you can paint your color on after!
The herb can tutorial can be found here, and the pot tutorial here. Both from the same great blog! Looks like there are a lot of fun projects there.

Start collecting those fun shaped bottles, this is the perfect Saturday  morning project - and you'll be done by lunch!  Thanks for reading and have a great one!
