Mackenzie Childs - Inspired Vase and Box

Yesterday I revealed my newly updated guest bedroom.  
The room is chock full of projects.  
I'm a big fan of Mackenzie Childs and harlequin designs in general. I needed a few accessories for the room so I looked around at what I already had in the house and transformed a basic clear vase and wine box.

The wine box I had lying around from Christmas when someone brought it as a hostess gift.  The clear vase was from Valentine's day roses.  

Using Annie Sloan chalk paint I had on hand I painted both the box and the vase in old white.

Using a ruler I measured out a harlequin pattern on the top of the box.  I free hand painted the vase.  On both pieces I used Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue.  

The dots between the diamond pattern as well as the outline around the box was done using a Sharpie paint pen.

I added detail to the vase using craft paints I had on hand.

These were the perfect way for me to finish off the top of the armoire.  I love how they came out.

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Hi, I found an old vanity table with drawers & oval mirror at the Goodwill store ~ it was very rickety & Free! I want to do a Mackenzie child's dyi with it. Can you suggest what kinds of paints/primer I can use? Plus, any ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Lind

It is always great to do decorations by ourselves. We can re-use or recycle old items and give it new look! Same as you in this case! Such a lovely vase!!!
