Turn a Cheap Vase Into an Expensive Looking Home Accessory (VIDEO)

Inspiring 5

I am not good at crafts. I think I am, but things never come out as well as I imagined when I started the project. Still, I love the idea of brightening my home and the homes of my friends with unique, handmade things.

But awesome craft projects don't have to cost a ton of money or require a lot of time or skill; it just requires ingenuity, patience, and the right materials.

Andee shows us how to make awesome, colorful vases and a super-cool lamp with just paint and some old glass items in the latest episode of Make It Fabulous.

All you need is craft paint, some old glass vases (like the boring ones you get with flowers) or jars, and for the lamp, you need LED lights and a special drill bit that cuts glass. The hardest part is drilling a hole to poke the LED lights through ... the rest is fast, easy, and looks great. For the vases, choose some colors of craft paint that you like and simply pour the paint in, swirl to coat the inside, and pour out the excess. 

Watch the video below to get inspired!

Beyond the basics of designing or remodeling homes, it includes information like cost estimates for new homes, additions or even decks and patios. It allows the individual using the software to design both the bones and interior design of the home.  Thank you.      entry level customer service resume

If you and your neighbor have identical houses, yet you have granite counter tops, your house will be worth slightly more. Yet, if you have identical houses and you have a brand new water heater and they have an old one, this would not necessarily increase the appraisal value of your house. Thanks.

Gaining equity in your home can benefit you, the homeowner, in many ways. Equity can be used to earn extra money when selling your home or can be used to take out a loan to do a home remodel or repairs. Understanding how to build equity in your home and learn about mortgage information and then applying those principles will benefit you and your family for years to come. Thanks.

Societal marketing appeared during the 1970s in an attempt to provide marketing concepts that were more in tune with social needs and established more ethical practices. As more emphasis was placed on social responsibility, more companies moved toward business practices that supported these values. Thanks for sharing,

Apply for a business license at your city clerk's office, and file any required state forms needed to open your business. Make sure you meet all the necessary business requirements for your area, including applying for business insurance. Talk to the Department of Labor about any business requirements they may have, including any fees you have to pay. Thanks a lot.
