Quick & Easy Chalk Paint® Vase




This Chalk Paint® project could not be easier and it's perfect for Mother's Day! I grabbed some vases at Goodwill for a steal (use the coupon!) then painted two quick coats of some Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan that I had on hand. I used Duck Egg Blue and French Linen. After they dried I used a damp kitchen sponge to distress them. I waxed them to protect the finish and give it a polished look. Then I embellished them with some craft supplies I had on hand. I'm going to fill them with some simple white flowers on Mother's Day and gift them to my mom, mother-in-law, and grandmother. A handmade gift is always special and this one is affordable and takes less than an hour!



Are you making a handmade gift this year?

    1. Hi Mary,
      We did not paint the inside since standing water would be in it all the time. The outside holds up beautifully since it is covered in clear wax. We are still using our vases today!
