Here is a "before" picture of all the different shades of blue and mixed patterns:
Nice, but not what I wanted anymore.
Here is an "after" picture of the same vases after being spray painted with white paint. I used what ever type of spray paint I had on hand as long as it was white and since I was on a roll I found a few more to add to the collection too.
Here's a picture of some of them on the shelf over the pantry doors .
Here's the rest of them over the kitchen window
Someone also mentioned if you painted the inside as well the colors wouldn't bleed through. I didn't take the time to do that as most of my colors were easily covered. The trick however, is to make sure you do very light coats (several times) to avoid streaking and I spray painted mine outside on the patio.
Hope you like them as much as I do, thanks for looking.
