While all the LOUD construction was going in my house, I went to the Goodwill and found 4 vases that I thought could be pretty with a little help. I liked the shape and the details on them.
The finish on the vases were rough, so I knew that paint would stick well. I painted 2 of them in AS pure white and the the other pair in a home made grey chalk paint. I made sure the paint was a little thicker then usual so it would give the vases depth and character. I dried the paint with a hair drier (trying to get some crackle) and then added the aging/patina by rubbing on AS dark wax.
I added some fresh flowers from TJ's and called it a day!
