It's an old wine bottle, with a twig I painted green (saved from my Christmas mantle scape).
I honestly have no clue where this came from. We don't drink this wine. And I have no idea why it was sitting in a corner of the basement (although I have a hunch it might have something to do with Mr. RBR's failed attempt at home brewing beer). However it ended up here, I remembered seeing a similarly shaped vase at TJ Maxx a couple days ago. For $20. So after I scraped the label off with a razor, this discarded bottle went to work as a vase.
Sometimes I need to be reminded that it can be that easy and to get a new look. Especially after spending hours painting a relatively small chunk of wall. Notice that pattern behind the vase?
The wall treatment, not as simple to do. But still pretty!
Do you need a new vase? I think it's a great excuse to buy a gigantic jug o' wine.
It's, ahem, for decorating purposes only, honey.
Tutorial for what is probably the most amazing wall treatment I've ever done tomorrow. (It may even beat the monster truck).
Now go make something!
