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.
