1. Vintage Classic White with Ribbed Texture Look


This affordable vintage decor ideas is from @mcafeehomeliving. She changed an inexpensive glass vase to this expensive-looking real pottery vintage style with a ribbed texture to get this look. I will walk you through steps to replicate this look. First, you get the base. To get the perfect base you can use spray paint but preferably get paint that has all in one, including primer. Next, let’s get some icing on that cake, I mean, your glassware. To make a mixture of the plaster, you just mix it and no technicality there, just eyeball the ratio till you get that nice thick texture. Brush the plaster all over your glassware. You can use an icing spatula or wallpaper smoother to make a smooth plaster base. After your first plaster base dries, add another thicker second layer on (make sure your second layer is thick, to get that ribbed texture). Then, make the ridges with a fork or (brush cleaner; the one she used). You’re almost done. After it dries, you can smooth out the big chunks with sandpaper to get a more natural look. The last step for the finishing touch, give another original base paint over it then another different color over it, after it dries and you can redo the paint or adds more until you are satisfied with the results. Don’t go yet, to get that real vintage look, mix a mixture of dirt, yes dirt, don’t worry just trust the end results! And just get on that dirt mixture with a brush over your piece, and voila! You get this real vintage gem with minimum budget and minimum effort but beautiful results.
