DIY: old clear vases paint& PermEnamel Surface Conditioner. Just poured the paint straight into the vase (it took about 1-2oz bottle for each vase) and brushed the paint around a little. then i just sat the vase on it's side (rotating it around every couple minutes) and let the paint drip around until it all was covered in a nice thick coat. so super easy!!
Spray-painted chandeliers-- get an ugly brass one from a thrift store & do this. I had a friend who did this, it actually turned out pretty neat looking. I actually have one in my room. It's hand painted not spray painted but I could see that being cool too.
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)
