The last house Paul and I rented had a bold red kitchen and serene sage colored living room walls, it rocked our world! Being a military family, we move so much and rent so often that painting walls is totally out of the question. Within a month of moving out of our colorful Florida abode and into our temporary rental home in NC, we were craving color.
I fell in love with two canvas paintings that combined neutrals with a pop of vibrant red.
Hellooo Red! Welcome back into my life!
Now that we have our accent color picked out,
it’s time to accessorize!
I have a TON of glassware around the house, my collection of boring clear glass everything doubled after the wedding and rehearsal dinner decorations weaseled their way into my closet. Let’s just call it like it is, extreme packrat-itis. And I’ve got it BAD! Luckily the super sweet folks at Krylon let me choose a few samples of paint to snazz up all this glass with. I jumped at the chance to test out their Stained Glass spray paint. I’m hoping to combine gorgeous translucent stained glass vases with super bold lacquered vases to create an edgy arrangement on our accent table.
First I started with a vase from one of my rehearsal dinner centerpieces.
After washing and drying the vase thoroughly, I taped off the inside with blue painter’s tape and rolled up a paper towel to block paint from getting on the inside of the vase.
It worked surprisingly well! =)
Below is what the red stained glass spray paint looks like after one light coat.
Super translucent and almost frosted! Gorgeous, right? It gets better!
Lightly layering coat after coat of the paint produces a vibrant red that looks straight off the shelf of a department store. I’m obsessed! I sealed it off with protective coat of Krylon’s clear spray paint and called it a day. I can’t wait to make a few “friends” to hang out with my new stained glass vase!
Have you used stained glass paint before?
I love it!
