I don’t know about you, but I love a fresh flowers and really enjoy decorating around my home when I am able. Sometimes, just having a few bountiful blooms can really make an impact. I am sharing how to display those beautiful flowers using a vase made out of something everyone has in their kitchen cabinet. Let’s learn how to make a Spice Tin Vase!
Yes… you heard that right! I am going to show you how to use Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint
to update an empty spice container. It is such a simple project, but it gives a luxurious chippy appearance to something that was headed to the bin.
Spice Tin Vase
Soft & Clean Rag
Step One. Paint one coat of the Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint on the exterior of the spice tin. Let dry completely and repeat. I decided upon three coats of the paint. It covered completely after the second coat, but I love the textured look that the added coats bring.
Step Two. To protect the paint, you will add a thin layer of creme wax directly onto the dried paint with a soft cloth. I used the clear wax, but you can find more tips on how to distress a painted piece on the Tips and Techniques Page.
Step Three. Once your wax has dried, you will add another coat of the creme wax. Let it dry completely and they you can use a soft rag to buff the finish to a shine.
I love how it turned out and can’t wait to fill this vase with fresh flowers as the weather warms up. Since the vase is metal, dry completely between uses to prevent rust on the inside of the container.
Have a wonderful Spring day and have fun creating a spice tin vase for your home!
