Glass Decor

Hello friends!! Today I thought I would talk about glass and how I use it in decorating. I have collected some great pieces over the years, I just love the reflective and airy feel they bring to a room. Whenever I spot a large vase on sale, a pretty bowl or candle sticks made of glass, I snatch it right up! I don't think you can ever have enough glass decorative pieces in your home....well maybe you can, but I can't! Where do I store all of these you ask? I don't, I always have them out on display and never put them away because they are just too pretty to look at!

I love the drama these over sized glass vases being on my dining room table add to the room. I found them at Home Sense Canada in the clearance aisle for $9 each guys!!! So you know I was all over that! I love adding seasonal florals to them. When they are dressed up with flowers, they instantly become a dramatic focal point in the space. If you don't have fresh florals then use some faux florals. Falsies are my fave! I usually have faux hydrangeas in my jugs on this table. I love that I can't kill them and they always look great, haha! I will say Michael's and even some dollar stores have a great selection of some pretty realistic looking faux florals for a decent price.

Don't forget to check out your local thrift store for glass decor. My thrift store always has a great sized selection of different glass vases, jugs, candle sticks and bowls....

Check out these beauties I scored for $2 each!

Did you find a great vase at a thrift store, but hate the colour?? Spray paint it! Mostly all spray paints work on glass. In the picture below I spray painted out 3 mini wine bottles in Rustoleum spray chalk paint in Serenity Blue.

Here I just spray painted a bunch of random left over vases I had kicking around. By grouping them together, tucking in some faux florals (Dollar Tree) and spraying them all the same colour, they become an attractive centerpiece for our kitchen table.

Home Sense is always my go to place to find new inexpensive jugs

Here is a simple display of thrifted vases on my bedroom shelves.

Large demijohns make great decorative floor pieces. I found mine at garage and estate sales.

Here is another demijohn I've placed on my front entry table and filled with wine corks to give a textural element.
