Pottery Barn Inspired Antique Vase

by - May 12, 2021

I've had an old vase/pot store in the closet for years now. I was thinking about giving the vase away to somebody else (since I'm not the biggest fan of the color.) Until I saw the artisan earthenware vases on the Pottery Barn website. I fell in love with the rustic and antique look of the vases. I knew I could easily dupe the vase using baking soda and paint. 


  • Old vase
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Baking soda


1.) In a container, mix 1 part paint and 1 part baking soda.

2.) Paint the vase with the baking soda mixture.

3.) In a bowl, mix water and khaki color to water down the paint.

4.) Dip a brush in the mixture and gently brush it over the vase.

5.) Continue to apply the paint until you are happy with the results.
