I always see things in stores that I know I can DIY. New products in craft stores that I noticed for the first time or plain items in dollar stores. I muster all of my self-control to resist putting them in my cart. I convince myself that I don’t have a plan for them yet… lol. But when I saw these little wooden geometric vases, I couldn’t resist. I didn’t know at the time that they would turn into these DIY painted vases, but they had SO much potential!

I saw a similar pattern to the one I painted on a tea towel once. It’s been sitting in my brain waiting for me to find something to recreate it with! I think this would look awesome on a circular or square vase or container too, but it really stands out on this cool geometric one!
I started by painting the entire piece white as a base, and then used black for the design (you know how much I love black and white!). The key to this project is having the right Paint Brush! Another brush might leave to broad of strokes, or too uneven. I tried a few different types, and this Liner Paint Brush was the only one that gave me the thin, defined lines I was looking for!

Would you recreate these simple vases for your office? Or use them as planters? Or recreate the design on another container?
I LOVE how these guys turned out!
