Make these DIY textured vases from thrift store finds using mineral paint and texture powder to freshen up your spring dining room.
I’ve been wanting to share this project and article for several weeks now! Back in February I had a great morning thrift store shopping and happened across some fabulously shaped old vases that I knew would look great in a fresh, white texture painted finish. You may remember this article from last fall where I did a similar project using leftover wall paint and baking soda.
This time around, I decided to give some mineral paint a try instead, and I used a combination of Fusion Mineral Paint and Fusion Texture Powder to create this beautiful finish. I love how these DIY texture painted vases turned out, and they are the perfect way to brighten up our dining room. Just stuff them with a variety of faux spring blossoms and you’ve got yourself some simple, thrifty, and cheerful spring decor!

Texture Vase DIY:
To make these vases I used the following products from Fusion Mineral Paint. This post is not sponsored in anyway, I just recently found a local retailer that sells this paint and I wanted to give it a try! These are the products I used – though if you have a local retailer you may be able to find sample sizes of the paint. Most likely you could create the same effect with a white chalk paint or even interior latex paint, by adding the texture powder, though I haven’t tried it myself so I can’t say for sure.
This is how these looked when I first brought them home…
I mixed some of my Fusion Mineral paint into a small dish and added a few spoonfuls of the texture powder. I added more than the instructions called for to create a thicker textured paint. The thickness resembled sour cream after I had mixed it thoroughly. I painted a couple of base coats first to get full coverage, and then used a thicker ended brush to add and build up more texture.
I made a little video showing you how I transformed these thrift store vases…
After the Texture Painting…
Quite a transformation, right? I paid only a few dollars for each of these vases, and now they look updated and expensive!
Here are some close up views of the textured finish…
Using Textured Vases in our Spring Dining Room Decor:
I love the fresh white feel of this DIY texture paint in our dining room. Plans are still in the works to change up this space a little more, as I mentioned in my article here. I definitely want to add a paneling or moulding feature to the back wall. Also under consideration is whether to change the overall paint colour of our living/dining room. We painted everything white when we moved in to keep things simple (as we did it ourselves!). Now I’m starting to plan little tweaks and changes…
PS – you can see how I made over this Facebook Marketplace find table in this article.
Spring Decor in our Dining Room Hutch:
I also shared a few images of our spring dining room decor ideas in our dining room hutch when I shared my free Easter Egg printables…
To Paint or Not to Paint??
Another Fusion Mineral Paint project, this vintage hutch from Facebook Marketplace is one of my favourite old-new pieces. I’m still deciding whether I want to leave the interior wood, or paint it out in fresh white (like the Casement colour I used on the vases).
What would you do?
