$5 transformation!

So sorry for not getting this project done sooner!  This week has been quite busy.  So like I said.  I went and bought some Rustoleum Spraypaint and went to town on my green vase and my empty lemonade bottle. 
Not going to lie though.  I did go to Pottery Barn before I did this project to check out those beautiful urns again.  And you know what?  I found out that it was doable.  The $89 one is WAY too big.  So I could have done 2 for around $50.  I held off though bc I thought it was important to see what I thought of the end result. 
( I use our garage for all my spraypainting projects, so my extra beadboard comes in handy ALL the time!)

So this is the end result!  $5 later and I think they actually look good!  The shape, size, everything works for this space.  The flowers are from Pottery Barn as well.  We got them with a gift card from my little sister Rachel a few years ago.  They really add some depth to our bedroom! 
This is the view from one side of the room.  That dresser is very old, but VERY durable.  I plan to paint it and give it new hardware.  I just haven't gotten the guts to do it yet :)
And now the other side of the room.  Those green drapes are being replaced by the beautiful ones from World Market (which I already blogged about...twice!!!) 

So sometimes its worth it to spend a little and sometimes its worth it to spend more.  This time, I think spending $5 instead of $50 was totally worth it ;)  I have the same affect for way less!
