Spring Vase {Anthropologie knock-off}

So you may be wondering how I come up with ideas for Spring crafts? Eh? Sometimes I just know exactly what I want to do and either it goes swimmingly or bombs.  It is fun when mistakes turn into something even better.  Today  I am using Anthropologie vases as my inspiration. Why? Because I know I can make one with materials I already have. ;)

      Well, I probably look like a crazy person rummaging through my house to find things that I don’t mind changing or turning into something else. Once I get started, I just don’t stop… :)

      Thanks Alvina! My husband bought that paint for a project, its totally something that I would NOT pick out. I can’t believe how pretty it turned out!! Found the lamp at TJ Maxx pretty recently. Thanks for the sweet comment. ;)
