Hello! I am back again with another DIY project, my DIY Texture Paint Vases. I am always looks for unique ways to style our table at home and my love affair with transforming secondhand vases into something beautiful is still going strong. If you have been following along on Instagram, then you'll know I recently discovered Dulux's Texture Paint at Bunnings. I used it to finish the tabletop for my DIY Tiled Chubby Side Table and my DIY Wavy Mirror, so I couldn't resist seeing if it worked on a clay vase I had at home. It had a very ugly pattern etched onto one side and I always used to turn it around so you couldn't see it. I applied the Texture Paint, touched it up with a bit of spray paint and here we are! I love tis project because you don't need a lot of materials, it's fast and the final result is just gorgeous. You can also tint the colour of the Texture Paint by adding acrylic paint in a colour of your choice. So much fun! Read on to find out how you can create your own DIY Texture Paint Vases.
This would have to be the easiest project I've ever done. And that's why I love it so much! You can use a vase lying around at home or hit up your local charity shops to see what you can find for a steal. This texture paint literally covers up anything, so don't be shy when buying the ugliest vase ever.
For this project I decided to experiment with different finishes and brush strokes - just for fun! I was surprised at how much different they looked. See below.

Right: Quick strokes of the paint brush with lots of texture paint.
Left: Less texture paint used with long paint strokes.
