DIY Vase Makeover With Paint and Baking Soda

For my spring craft, I am sharing a DIY vase makeover with paint and baking soda. Mixing baking soda with paint is an age old trick that gives paint a chalky texture. Applying this paint to vases gives a pottery finish without the hefty price tag. This works really well if you have an old vase or even a glass bottle that you would like to repurpose. Let me show you the steps!
Simply mix acrylic paint in the color of your choice with some baking soda and stir well. If you would like a more pasty mixture for added texture, continue adding baking soda until you are happy with the consistency. For added texture, I added some black pepper. The black pepper will not blend into the paint, so you will see some flecks on the surface when you paint.
Stir the above paint mixture well and begin painting your surface. Depending on your surface, you may need to apply 2-3 coats to get full coverage. Allow your paint to dry and then style your new vase in your home! I added a few olive stems to the vase to add a fresh pop of greenery to my shelves.
