How to make ugly glass purdy

Got any flower vases, mason jars or glasses layin around collectin dust? Heres a lil cheap trick to spruce em' up and put em' to use. All you need is spray paint or house paint whichever color you like I did a white to match my milk white vases and a seafoam because... well because seafoam is just kickass. If you have glass that is grooved like these shown then I suggest you grab a spare tooth brush and some newspaper or something to cover the top of the glass.
MAKE SURE the inside of your glass is 100% clean because once you paint it that dirt will stick out like a sore thumb and be there foreverrrrrrrrr.

Wrap the top of the glass with a newspaper to avoid over spray all over it, you WILL get over spray all your hands if you care about this then cover em' if ya  or wrap a rubber band arond the top if ya dont then be prepared to have a colorful hand for the next week.
Spray for a good 10 seconds to get a good first coat on the inside, wait ten minutes let it dry then spray another coat. If youre using paint then your going to pour the paint into the inside and then use a tooth brush to get into all the grooves. reapply coats as often as you need but make sure you wait a good 10 minutes inbetween coats. Let dry for 24 hours! THEN there ya go some purdy awsomeness.

TA-DA! If this is nothing new to you and so last year then here is a picture of one compeleted side in my work room... the other three sides are WRECKED right now i'm still in the process of unpacking and rearranging before and after to come soon tho!
