Things have been crazy busy for me the last month or so with the kids school holidays, umpteen different projects on the go and enormous amount of work I have behind the scenes on my blog re-design (very exciting!).
Last year we bought a second hand static caravan on a lovely holiday park in Friesland.
The caravan was in quite a good state and we were lucky enough to get the complete contents thrown in with the sale.
The decor however is a little bit dated so I am on a mission to revamp it without spending too much money so I am trying to use the things I already have.
I inherited with the caravan a pair of lovely big vases. I really liked the shape and the size of the vases but with regard to the design it desperately needed bringing up to date!
I already had some cement look structure paint which I bought a while ago from ‘Action’(a discount store here in the Netherlands).
It was only around €2 for the bottle so I was curious to see how it would look.
Cement Look Structure Paint
First I took the vases and gave them a good wash!
I debated whether or not I should try to fill the pattern on the vase but decided in the end just to paint straight over it.
The paint went on super easy but it did take me a total of 4 layers to get complete coverage. I allowed about half an hour drying time between the layers.
To paint the 2 vases (inside and out) I used about 3/4 of the bottle of paint.
I was pretty happy with the end results.
The flowers also came with the caravan and (upon closer inspection) area a little tatty around the edges so I still need to look for something to replace them with.
Now I just need to see to the upholstery!
I will be sharing lots more DIY, craft and home lifestyle features.
