Happy Hour : Spring Vases

posted on

Every been in a restaurant when it turns "Happy Hour?"  You notice the mood instantly changes as everyone is ready for fun.  Whenever I'm having a Bad Hair Day, my cure is always a personal Happy Hour.  Of course, I'm hopeless addicted to interiors; so for me, this hour is all about decorating.  

In this new series, we'll look at some quick and happy mood changers for our very own Happy Hour. Each should take about an hour - a mere 60 minutes - to perk up our minds and our rooms. Let's get the party started.

Have you noticed?  White vases are suddenly everywhere.  Springtime fresh, white vases bring a modern, crisp look to any room.  And, they're easy to find - you'll see in dollar stores and IKEA.  You can even make them yourself but more of that in a minute.  First, let's look at how great they can look in any room.

Thanks to Jennifer for bringing this springtime look to my attention.  Here's her amazing spring mantel - white pots filled with plants from Trader Joe's.
Around here, our living room mantel with a small jade (a gift from Kimberly) and a round vase (99 Cents Store) filled with Turkey Buzzard feathers left on our deck.
Now for the fun.  For this Happy Hour, grab a can of white spray paint to create your own white vases.
Old florist glass vases are the perfect candidates for a spray of white.
Ceramic vases transformed after a spray.  Most everyone has some mismatched ceramics - if not, find them at tag sales.  Here's to a fresh life for forgotten vases.  Hope you enjoy your Happy Hour.  XOX
