Copper Vase

My affinity for copper hasn't stopped with my copper headboard...what can I say, I love the sheen and the warmth the color brings to a room. Hence when I laid my eyes on this vase at a thirft store, I couldn't pass it up, and for $2.00, it was a steal:


But even for me, it was a little too coppery to display in my living room. I traced a leaf pattern on contact paper and stuck it on the vase.


Sprayed it with a coat of primer- the coppery surface was really porous and I wanted to make sure the paint stuck.

Painted it a glossy brown- it took two coats.

Peeled off the contact paper while it was still a little wet, waited for it to dry and
voila!
