When You Feel Like Running

I wanted a white vase, so I spray painted white over my shiny Goodwill find. I must not have prepped well enough as the white paint began to chip off around the edges after a while. The chipping didn't look much like shabby chic or farmhouse decor or anything nice so the vase was relegated to the closet. Recently my husband got a hold of it. He sanded the vase down, added a little texture fixing where the chips were jagged and sealed it. Voila! I have an amazing vase now!
