Enter, DIY milk glass!!!
I followed these instructions http://www.heygorg.com/2010/08/diy-milk-glass.html and trotted off to buy clear vases at the thrift store. They were having a sale off purple and blue tag items so my large vases were $1 apiece. Ring ring ring (that was the cash register noise).
|when i looked away the exercise ball rolled into the vases.|
luckily the vases won. phew!
|hehe I also got these actual milk glass bud vases|
$1.50 each! (blue sticker sale w00t w00t)
My schedule is really weird right now, I am working every other night for 16 hours at a time so technically I am home during every daylight period of each day but i am only able to do my silly bridezilla things for a few hours at a time (because I am snoozing my head off during the good part of the day). So anyway, the next day, I bought some spray paint. Then, the NEXT day (today) I am finally able to wreak havoc.
Unfortunately, after the first spray made its way to my brain and destroyed a few neurons, I realized that indoor spray painting is the worst. idea. ever. So, like any sane person, I went to the roof.
|it was a GORGEOUS day on the roof, i mean it was so ridiculously sunny when I|
went back inside I couldn't see a thing.
outfit: on-call fleece, baggybutt scrub pants, vase mitten
hair: silly ponytail
|I think it turned out ok. The paint is uneven but not really that noticeable.|
|I did not heed the warnings from the others who have done this project|
and I got spray paint all over my hands and it is not water soluble.
So that's that. I also tried a few other projects in designing the centerpieces. Here's another that I did last week, following this tutorial: http://pizzazzerie.com/parties/tutorial-how-to-make-a-pomander-flower-ball/
