So, I found glass vases in different sizes and textures at the thrift store, scarfed up a whole ton of them and endured the odd looks from the cashier lady sent to find me a box to cart them away in.
"Why are you buying all these vases?" she asked.
I told her my plan.
"I never would have thought of that," she said. I can't be certain she meant this as a compliment.
Okay, so back at home I threw down my spray painting sheet on the garage floor, whipped out my cans of Kryon, sat my vases (one at a time) upside down in the middle of the sheet and gave 'em about 3-4 thin (letting it dry between coats...you don't want the paint to run down the vase) coats of paint. For the last coat, I turned the vase right side up and gave it a quick onceover, trying not to get the paint inside the vase just in case I actually want to put flowers in them at some point. (Did you catch that? That was my (kind of) tutorial.
(Please ignore the ugly digital box antenae things. Yep. We're a bit old school.)
