Bedroom Refresh (The Extended Version!) & Ceramic Vase Tutorial
Get the sources to the bedroom refresh and learn how to make your own ceramic vase!
Thank you so much for all the love on my bedroom refresh that I shared last week. I decided to do a second post today sharing the sources to more of the items in the room and give you that quick tutorial for the white plastered ceramic vase as well!

Now it’s time to talk about the vase I transformed. From the very beginning of planning this bedroom refresh, I wanted to add some white and green (in the form of greenery) to the room. So I went searching for a large vase at Homegoods. I found a vase shape that I loved but not in the right color. So I decided to plaster it! This would allow me to change the color to white and add some cool texture at the same time!
Here’s what you will need for this project:
-vase or planter you want to paint
–sanding block(if you like)
–painters tape (if you need to cover/protect some part of the vase)
HERE ARE THE STEPS ON HOW TO MAKE A CERAMIC VASE:
Keep in mind, you can use any type of vase for this project. It’s more about the shape of the vase then the finish! Even if you find a glossy vase that you really love, just apply a coat of primer first and you should be good to go! 🙂
Mix your dry plaster with water until you have close to the consistency of pancake batter. Then using your brush start by applying a thin coat. You will kinda need to work fast because the plaster will start to harden in about 10 minutes or so.
As the plaster starts to harden, go back and dab away any paint lines and add some texture to the vase finish. Then allow that to dry for about an hour.
Once dry, you can apply another coat to get the look you’re trying to achieve. For me, I wanted most of the green gone so I actually applied three coats. 🙂
On the last coat, I also did an extra step to finish the look. I cleaned out my brush and then used it to apply a very light layer of plain water all over the pot to smooth out as many of the brushes strokes as I possible.
After I was done with that step, I just left it over night to dry completely. Then I popped in a few faux eucalyptus stems and now I have a stylin’ vintage looking addition to my bedroom dresser.
If you would rather buy a white ceramic vase, I have rounded up a collection of my favorite styles. Lots of different sizes and finishes to choose from below.
