I have been searching for a small white vase to adorn the center of my dining room table for ever. Specifically wanted a this vase from Dollar Tree in a smooth white finish, so I decided to take the project on myself. Unfortunately, apartment living doesn't lend itself very will to spray paint so hand painting with acrylic was my only option. The bristles on the brush added some texture to the outside of the vase that I ended up liking very much. Now I have the pretty white vase to put fresh flowers in that I always wanted!
