I am completely infatuated with Instagram!
I’m following bloggers that feature home decor – usually rustic-vintage-farm-cottage style – so scrolling through my Instagram feed is like flipping through a gorgeous magazine…. without the ads and articles. I find myself checking it at least twice a day – wonderful, but terribly addictive.
One thing I’ve notice a lot of, are white pitchers. I’ve never thought much about pitchers in the past – we use tupperware jugs for our drinks – but the photos are stunning.
Which finds me CRAVING a white pitcher of my own.
Given that they are so trendy right now, most come with a hefty price tag… so I decided to DIY my own white pitcher.
I’ve had this glass jug in my cupboard for about 10 years now. I don’t know why I kept it, except that fate knew someday I would “need” it.
This white pitcher is going to be FANTASTIC with all of that texture going on!
Because I’m planning on using it for a vase – the spray paint needs to go on the outside so it doesn’t leech into the flowers, or peel off in the water.
Three light coats of this and I topped it with a coat of clear gloss spray paint and voila!
This isn’t really an inexpensive project if you don’t already have spray paint around. Just doing one vase in the gloss white would be an investment of about $8, BUT if you have several pitchers, vases or other objects you’d like done – it becomes really cost effective.
Granted, it’s not really about the white pitcher when filled with flowers…
Particularly if they are in this combination of bluish-purple and yellow.
And we deserve a bouquet every once in awhile right?
Note: your white pitcher will have to be hand-washed and should not be left to sit in water or the paint will eventually come off. Hubby accidentally put ours through the dishwasher and it did not survive well.
Special thanks to Forest of Flowers for overshadowing (but in a good way) today’s project.
Have a great one!
