This first vase was $1.50 and very purple.
I wasn't crazy about this colour, though my cousin's daughter loved it, lol. Anyway, I painted it black and here it is in our living room with some decorative sticks, next to my favourite Ikea lantern.
This basket was $1.00.
I painted it ivory, stuffed it with toiletries for company, and put it in the spare bathroom.
This third piece is nice. I even like the colour except that it doesn't match anything in our house. We're all green and gold and brown,....so, I went on behr.ca and checked out complementary colours. The colour selector agreed that this blue was a punch of colour to accent our olive green but in reality, it just didn't look right. So this piece is still pending.
It was the most expensive of the bunch at $2 so I really want to make it into something big. :) It might be destined for a black paint job and a spot beside the other vase, but I'm hoping for something more interesting. We'll see.
