How's that for a new word?!
Pretty good considering it's near midnight right now.
My sister gave me this vase as a gift several years ago.
My colour scheme was a bit different back then.
I didn't want to get rid of it, because of course, my beloved sister gave it to me.
So I decided to make it work with my colours now.
My sister Renita and I (a few years ago but we still look the same!)
I painted it with Annie Sloan's Old Ochre Chalk Paint.
It needed a few coats.
I painted the bottom black, just using folk art paint from Michael's.
I applied a clear wax to the whole vase.
I applied Annie Sloan's dark wax to the raised design on the vase.
When the vase looked satisfactory, I applied two coats of Mod Podge
so that it would be easy to wipe if it got wet,
since it is a vase.
Re "Vase" alized!
The dictionary meaning for re·vi·tal·ize is:
imbue (something) with new life and vitality.
I went to Michael's in search of some type of floral wonder
to grace this revitalized creation.
I don't know the name of these flowers, but they were 50% off
and they totally match the vase!
I found the flowers to put in the vase, but where to put the vase?
On another one of my painted projects of course!
This little table was another thrift find.
I painted it with homemade chalk paint using Lowes colour of Brandied Pears.
It was covered in clear wax.
I love doilies and I love the tatting (I think that's what it is) on this.
Overall, it came together nicely.
I added a piece of jute to tie at the base to hide the imperfections there.
It may or may not stay.
And that's the story of a vase that became re"Vase"alized!
Have yourself the most wonderful day!
