This project is perfect to create some ambiance for any occasion. The technique I am using is to give the glass an antique look. It’s super simple and you can create any color you like.
IKEA offers many sizes and styles of glass vases. I choose three different heights.

IKEA glass vases:
Large Cylinder skew # 602-233-28
Medium vase (Bladet ) skew # 301-221-99
Small vase (Bladet) skew  #601-505-31
Small push lights skew # 802-448-67

In order to create the antique look you will need:
1 part vinegar 3 parts water in a spray bottle
For paint I used Krylon Looking glass for silver mirror look and gold

To create the antique look:
1.    First clean the inside to remove dust.
2.    Lightly spritz inside of vase then quickly spray paint the inside. Be careful to not over spray. Less is better! Let dry.
3.    Place push lights at the bottom of the vase. Enjoy!
