Our Diva of DIY, Leanne Lee, demonstrates how to spice up your decor by painting and distressing glass.
BONUS: easy to coordinate with your home, holiday or event theme!
Distressing Glass with Paint Supplies
A glass vase (the more detailed the glass, the better)
Chalk-style paint (Check out my Chalk Paint Recipe for this project!)
1. Clean the glass with the rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball. Let dry.
2. Paint on a coat of chalk-style paint to glass. Let dry.
3. Using a sanding sponge, sand off the high spots of the glass detail.
Decorate to your heart’s content! I love to tie a piece of burlap or rope around vases to add texture. I also like to add a piece of something, whether it’s a old key, a sign or personalize it! If you know how to distress glass you will be able to transform old lights bought at your local thrift store, add color to a boring old vase…the possibilities are endless!
