I did this project weeks ago and am finally getting around to showing you all the finished product. I’d seen gold painted vases before and really liked the look of them. I found this vase for a great deal at Home Goods and it worked perfectly for my project.
I first taped off the areas I wanted to paint gold. In order to get straight lines, I had to tape off each side separately; I couldn’t just wrap the tape around the vase or it would end up crooked. I’m sure on a square vase it would work fine, but with any vase that tapers down like this you’ll have to do each side individually.
I then used my trusty Rust-Oleum Metallic gold spray paint. It covered pretty well with one coat, but I ended up doing 2 coats just to be sure it was completely covered and you couldn’t see through it. It actually dried pretty quickly on the glass. And in typical me fashion I totally forgot to take pictures of the painting process, sorry.
