Shabby Chic Valentine Vases...from re-clycled to Romancing the home
Shabby Chic Valentine Vases
From Re-cycled to Re-defined!
“Show your ue colors of love"
Recycled bottles are transformed into texturized colorful vases!
Valentine set a modern romantic scene; instead of putting all your
roses or flowers in one vases, why not place them in single vases for a
spectacular effect. Unassuming bottles in assorted size and shapes are
transformed with colorful texture to create stylist vase accents. This
easy to apply textured medium is achieved by combining regular acrylic
paints with a thickening medium.
