2 Tone Vase

Share this post

I have been looking at pretty painted vases on Pinterest lately and simultaneously unpacked a box full of vases.

I couldn’t help it, I had to do some painting!

Painted 2 tone vase - yellow and gray

Many of the projects I saw and pinned called for painting the inside of the vase but I chose to paint the outside just in case I want to put flowers in it down the road.


The particular vase I pulled out  is very thin glass and nothing special to look at…it was asking for a makeover.

I have been a little obsessed with spray paint these days so I used that to paint the outside.

Here’s what I used:


Painters Tape

2 colors of spray paint.

Chrome and Yellow, both can be used on glass and just about anything else


I taped off a portion of the bottom and painted the bottom chrome.


Once it dried I taped off the silver portion and painted the top yellow.


This vase will eventually end up on my living room mantel along with this mounted picture I made a couple of weeks back.

There are pops of yellow and gray all over my first floor so this vase fit right in….eventually ;)

Note:  I rested my finished vase on a pretty coaster.  Had I thought this through I would not have painted the bottom of the vase for fear it will rub off on the wood over time.  

I love it, what do you think?

Thanks for visiting.

I've seen some where you put rubber bands all around it and then frost it. Looks really cool but haven't tried it.
