While trash-picking one day, Emily from Elizabeth Joan Designs found a couple bags cheap, ugly baskets and vases. She was pretty sure she could figure out some new uses for them, starting with this square glass vase.
“My love for chalkboards helped determined the fate of this little guy,” Emily admits. She layered on a few coats of black chalkboard paint over the glass. After it dried, she primed the chalkboard surface with chalk before having some fun with chalked designs. Planted with a succulent, this former piece of trash is now a quirky, cute addition to Emily’s home.
