Vase Evolution

I usually try to shop the clearance aisles at my local stores once a week.  I call it clearance drive by to stores like Ross, Marshalls and TJ Max.  I usually give myself no more then 10 minutes in a store and I randomly stop on my way home from work.  Which store depends on traffic and what exit I take off of the interstate.

On one of my quick trips last fall I spotted an ugly plastic, fairly large vase for $3.50.  I spray painted it white.  Then I went traipsing through the gulley, found some broken branches, and spray painted them white.  I’m finding this vase a staple when it comes to seasonal decorating.  Here, I’ll show you…

Living Room Holiday Decor

A short while ago I shared a post where I turned a plastic vase and some branches leftover from a windstorm into a Drab to Fab Centerpiece.  Since my wrist was broken, we decided to not put up the big Christmas tree in the living room.  I still wanted some color so here’s what I did with the vase and branches, plus a few spray painted reindeer.

Bathroom Holiday Bling

I think, if it possible, that every room should have some holiday cheer during the most festive season of the year.  Even the bathroom!  I moved the vase with branches from the gulley from the living room to the downstairs potty, added some green and white raffia from the dollar store to the base and some silver ornanents balls for some bling.  Here’s the results.
