DIY Party Makeovers {Pink Vanity & Painted Vases}

Here’s some more eye candy (no pun intended ;)) from Emmalyn’s Pretty in Pink party. I had SO much fun making everthing for her 1st Birthday! Some people may think I went a little over board {okay maybe I did ;)}, but I loved making it all! I’m all over throwing a DIY party… and hey what if she’s my only girl?! I absolutely love all things girly and pink and my little diva does too!

When I found this nightstand at Goodwill’s 50% off Saturday sale for only $2, I knew had to have it! I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I loved the curves! I had tons of leftover pink paint from when we painted my daughter’s nursery pink (here), so I decided I’d paint it pink for the party.  Why not, right?! ;)

I gave it a good sand, light coat of primer and 2 coats of pink paint. You can find more tips on painting here.

{ Painted Vases – DIY Party }

I saw this super easy and inexpensive idea for painting vases in the BHG magazine. I found some vases at the Dollar Tree and Goodwill for $1 {score}! All you do is pour some paint inside the vase and swirl it around till it covers the inside. If your paint is thick you may want to dilute it with water first.

After the paint covered the vase I poured the excess back into the can. Then I wiped the rim of the vase with a damp paper towel and let it dry for 48 hours. These vases are seriously SO easy to make and make ALL the difference! You must try them!

These vases added the perfect touch to the party and for a buck… you just can’t beat that!

And I must say…this little candy station was a big hit at the party! Even the boys loved it! ;)
