GLAM Spray Painted Watering Can Vase

Do you ever just want to “glam up” stuff? I bought gold spray paint a while ago for my painted flower pots and ever since I’ve been going around my house picking out things that could use a little glamming up! Because you know, a coat of gold automatically gives anything a more glamorous look. I tried it out with this spray painted watering can vase and it’s true, instant glam! Let’s take a look.


This vase is easy to transform! It’s a perfect addition to home decor but even better, how fun would this be fore fresh cut flowers for Mother’s Day?!! (I’ve got you covered. You’re welcome!)

If you come around often then you know I love love love a pretty project that is easy and inexpensive!

 You also know that I frequent the target dollar section.

Which by the way is no longer only $1 – What’s up with that Target? 

I picked up this watering can from Target for a couple bucks. I wasn’t crazy about the bright red color so from the beginning I had planned to spray paint it.

As well as I said before, I’m kind of on a gold kick so after two coats this became my gold spray painted watering can.

It makes such a lovely vase! I placed a bunch of faux flowers in the vase but I can see a big bunch of fresh hydrangeas for mom in here too! Wouldn’t that be so lovely?

I seriously love what paint can do. Don’t you?

    No Way! I was LITERALLY in Target last night and picked up this same watering can in the dollar section. I wasn’t sold on the color so last minute I gave it back to the clerk and didn’t bring it home. I so should have spray painted it! haha :-) It looks awesome!

    Paint is amazing, isn’t it? It can be hard to remember that with some things, But paint has a sort of magical element to it.. I too wonder what’s up with Target and michaels upping their dollar items. But then, I remember going to the dime store as a kid. We were none to excited about dollar stores when they first started seeing as we once enjoyed dime stores.
