It’s no secret that we love flowers—whether freshly cut or artificial, blooms are a brilliant way to brighten up your abode. And of course, a chic container to show them off is a must. If you’re anything like us, you’ve amassed quite the collection of vases over the years—many of which are probably pretty generic (and dare we say it, boring).
But before you toss them out to make space for shiny new keepsakes, consider their potential: Refurbishing old items is a great way to both save money and flex your creative chops. Plus, there’s something about doing it yourself that’s just so satisfying.
