“I’ve had this Chinese vase for almost 20 years,” says Cristina from Remodelando la Casa, “but it’s been stored in the basement for the last 15 because its color scheme didn’t go with my home decor any longer.” A vignette on the cover of a Ballard Designs catalog made her decide to bring that it out of storage.
Cristina had spotted a similarly shaped vase in the Ballard Designs vignette, only it was a serene, neutral shade of….white. She realized that it would be possible to replicate that look with various ceramic pieces that she already had, if she just painted them white. She used a handmade version of chalk paint to coat three vases of her own. Now she has her own pretty vignette of white vases on the living room coffee table.
