DIY Joint Compound Vase Makeover
Ienjoy DIY projects, it is so cool being able to see something transform. I was once into clear glass vases for some reason, I have tons of them. I've spray painted vases before to change the look but wanted something more. I then stumbled upon using dirt, spackle and/or joint compound to a vase and was instantly in love. So I grabbed 3 glass containers I had and went to work. FUN doesn't even begin to describe this project, I even got Ms Bella to help.
Joint Compound Method
Clean the vases/container you plan on using
Apply a layer of joint compound. I used a generous amount but keep in mind it takes 24hrs to fully dry
I applied dirt first but like the look. I would suggest to paint it the color you want it. You can use spray paint, chalk paint or regular paint. I used matte black spray paint.
While the paint is drying throw dirt on the vase. Here is where your personal creativity comes into play. You can throw it on or rub it on. I used a combo of each.
Again, your personal taste comes into play at this stage. If you like where you are at you can seal it and be done. I played around some more, I rubbed the vase until some of the white joint compound started to show through this really gave them a aged look
Seal it with Clear matte sealer
Here is the video of the process, except adding dirt I’m working on cataloging every step of DIYs but I just get so excited to finish and forget to capture the before 🤦🏽♀️
