Welcome to the 181st Metamorphosis Monday!
A few weeks ago I attended the Haven Blog Conference in Atlanta. Rust-Oleum held a cocktail party one evening for all those attending. The tables were decorated in such a pretty and unique fashion, I knew I had to share it with you. I continue to be amazed at all the wonderful things you can “metamorphosis” with paint.
Each table was decorated in a different color scheme. If you look closely, you’ll notice the good folks at Rust-Oleum took everyday items like mason jars, wine bottles and odd containers, painted them and turned them into pretty vases for the table centerpieces. I spy a mason jar and several old screw-top wine bottles in this arrangement.
Have a bunch of small, inexpensive vases or containers stashed away under the kitchen sink? Give them an “opaque” or painted finish for a whole new look.
Any color goes…you’re only limited by your imagination.
Any type container will work. I wonder what color the horn shaped vase was before it was given a bold, spicey red-orange life. If you don’t have enough containers, check your local thrift stores and garage sales. You can usually find them there for almost nothing.
Notice the central theme that ties all the table arrangements together are the white flowers: hydrangeas, roses and is that a touch of Queen Anne’s Lace? This silver arrangement even contained what appeared to be an old syrup bottle. It was fun trying to figure out what some of the containers had been in their previous life.
The different heights of the containers used in each centerpiece add a lot to the overall appeal of the arrangements. So, you’ll want to use all sizes, heights and shapes to achieve this effect. Even an old cracked or chipped cup can be given new life with sunshine yellow paint.
Looking forward to your Before and Afters for this Metamorphosis Monday!
