Hey there, friends! Thank you so much for all of the love yesterday on my dining room redesign. I seriously couldn’t wait to show it to you. I had a feeling you were going to love it as much as I do.
Today I wanted to share a quick, easy, and colorful project. As you know, I’m part of Lowe’s Creative Blogger Team. This month we were challenged to come up with a project using Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. To be honest with you, I’m not a huge fan of the color. However, I think any space can benefit from a fun pop of color and this is certainly an interesting color to play around with. Plus, when I stumbled upon these flowers / greens at the grocery store, I thought they would look perfect in a little Radiant Orchid vase.
Let me show you how to make this simple DIY Radiant Orchid Vase.
DIY Radiant Orchid Vase
Here’s what you will need:
Pantone Radiant Orchid (sample jar available at Lowe’s)
Begin by cleaning your vase and drying it thoroughly. Then apply your painter’s tape to any area that you do not wanted painted.
Begin by coating the surface with the primer. Allow to dry; then add another coat.
Next, cover the primer with Radiant Orchid. Again, allow the paint to dry and add another coat. Be sure to remove the painter’s tape before the last coat dries.
And that’s it!
Tuck in some coordinating flowers and you have a modern, unique, and dare I say, radiant new vase!
This simple idea is great for whenever you need a bit of interest and bright color in a space. When I’m decorating, flowers are always the prefect finishing touch. They immediately make a space look more inviting.
