Vone blogs at Vone Inspired. She tells us, “After we moved into our new place I noticed that our bookshelf needed something on it to fill the gap between it and the ceiling.” She started collecting vases and bottles to use for décor up there. “This big beautiful blue floral vase was left in the house by the previous
people but the colour didn’t fit with our current decor.”
Since Vone liked the size and shape of the vase, she decided to keep it, but cover up the color. Her solution to give it some added oomph with texture and a unique, metallic finish? Pennies! After painting the vase a matte black, Vone simply collected every penny in her Canadian home and started gluing them to the vase with a glue gun. ”Since Canada has phased out the penny I thought this was the perfect ode to the penny!” she notes. I love it! The coppery tones are just gorgeous, and it’s such a cool conversation piece.
