DIY Painted Vase


Hi y'all!  Man oh man, I feel like I am starting to feel like myself again annnnnnd a bigger hot mess than ever.  Please tell me I'm not alone... #motherhood I'm giving myself a pat on the back for already showering three times this week!  I can give you a high five because I smell ok!  😂  Now that I have scared half of you away, I am going to share one of my latest DIYs.  

Our tall dresser in the master needed something big on it and I fell in love with a vase that Chris Loves Julia shared.  It was $90 dollars.  NINETY DOLLARS!  No way jose.  You know how much I could get for that Homegoods?  Target?  So much!  Anyway, the vase seemed simple enough for me to DIY and when I was at Ikea looking for kitchen organizers I found this:



Perfection!  Twenty bucks and I was sold!  I decided to paint the inside of the vase because I do not plan on putting water in it.  After making sure the vase was super clean I taped a line a little less than half way up.  



I gave the vase about 4 thin coats of paint {that I already had in the basement} and removed the tape before the paint fully dried.  



How do y'all think it compares?!


Our bedroom has been a constant work in progress since we moved in.  The problem with just doing a little here and there is that it doesn't always go together...  Or I buy something that I like "ok" but after 6 months I want to throw it in the dumpster.  Ever since I {refinished my grandad's dressers} I have been going crazy to finish the room.  


My biggest problem with the space is our bed.  The headboard doesn't seem to work anymore, I have pillow inserts on the bed with no covers, and every nightstand I've bought doesn't work.  My goal was to get all this figured out in March so if you are interested following along with me find me on insta!
