Easy DIY Painted MilkGlass
I always loved the look of milk glass.   Country living recently had an article about it and I fell in love with these vases:

They are so pretty all clustered together in a group, with all the gorgeous textures.   It is so clean and pretty, but the real stuff can be pricey unless you get really lucky and stumble upon it at a yard sale or thrift store.  Lately it has been near impossible to find authentic and inexpensive milk glass at thrift stores.



But you know what there ISN’T a shortage of at thrift stores?  Inexpensive clear glass vases.  They are PLENTIFUL and they are CHEAP.

 Can’t find vases at your thrift store?  You can get them for $1/each at Dollar Tree,  floral supply stores or Hobby Lobby
So how can you turn those into milk glass?

Of course, you don’t have to go all white, you also can make your own Jadite and other colored milk glass versions, you just need pastel spray paint!

For that vase I used avocado spray paint. I am not sure why I had avacado spraypaint already, but I knew it would be perfect for this.
Here is an example of the final look:
They are adorable all mixed together on a shelf:
