Faux Milk Glass/Jadite On A Budget

I always loved the look of milk glass.  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.

So I decided to make my own!
I took a 50 cent vase I previously bought at Ikea and  75 cent vase I got at Goodwill
I had white and avocado spray paint. I am not sure why I had avacado spraypaint already, but I knew it would be perfect for this.
I sealed it with high gloss clear coat and this is what I ended up with:
Clustered all together witha few others I picked up for under a dollar and you have a pretty cute little collection.  All for virtually no money!

  1. Huh. You know, I have a bunch of glass vases from floral deliveries, etc. I was going to toss. I may paint them and see what happens.

  2. I would NEVER have thought about making my own milk glass but you can bet I am now! It is so pretty! I probably shouldn't be this excited about it...but I really am! :)

  3. Milk glass is awesome...and I love that you were able to re-create that same look so inexpensively. Ah, the power of spray paint! Thanks for linking up at The CSI Project this week! Great to "meet" ya!
