Hey guys, I’m so excited to be a contributor here at Do More for Less! Wahoo, so much fun. Now I know most of you know Old Time Pottery, especially if you shop there and visit the blog often. But if not, let me give you the scoop. Old Time Pottery has name brand home décor, but on the cheap! Yup, you can score tons of home decor furnishings and accessories without ever breaking the bank. Love that! So let’s get to my first project shall we?

I saw this photo above the other day and was instantly inspired to add a little gold glam to our home’s decor. After all, gold has made a major come back recently. And I really like this rich, classic look. So I hit Old Time Pottery in search of the perfect accessory for my transformation. Here’s what I found…


This simple and very purple glass vase above. I love it’s low profile and modern shape. And it only cost $17.99 – perfect.

Next I grabbed my can of Valspar’s Metallic Spray Paint in…brilliant gold – and got to work. This project was so easy. Seriously anyone can spray paint. I just pointed the can about 10 inches from the vase, and sprayed evenly from left to right until the entire vase was covered.


And here’s the after…



Ahhh, my new gold vase is fabulous! Especially grouped together with these other fun finds. Okay knocking off a popular design trend by scoring a fabulous find, and then doing it yourself, a.k.a. DIY! Affordable decorating doesn’t get any better.
