Opinions on Centerpiece: to spray paint or not to?
Posted: Sep 5, 2008 11:58 PM

Hi everyone,

This is the vase that I am using for my spray roses centerpiece.  It will be sourrounded by red rose petals and red votive candles. My colors are red, purple, and hints of silver. SO, my question is, do I keep the bases of the vase as they are (black) or should I spray paint them silver?  If I spray paint, do you think that they will smell like paint? Thanks for the input!

Leave it alone <G>  Black is a neutral, so it will blend nicely with it.

Agreed.  Black is fine.  It goes with everything.

I would say leave it alone.  And ask yourself this...With everything else you have to do...do you really want to spray paint a bunch of stands that no one will notice but you?

Dear Chibride,

I'm not a big fan of matchy-matchy. That said, I think you ought to leave them.

It's just my personal preference.

I'll be the voice of dissent and say maybe you should paint them? Spray-painting is super easy with the new paints out there. It gets a bad rap for being peely and runny, but that's just not true with the new formulas that work on basically everything.

 I spray painted four chairs last weekend in under 2 hours (including drying time and multiple coats)

 Of course they look nice as they are, but it never hurts to put your personal touch on things :)

I also think they will look fine just the way they are...black does go very well with everything....I love it! LOL Best of luck with whatever you pick.

Spray paint your face? LOL.....wtf? That was out there, but then again, I got a similar response from the same person when I asked about cake cutting songs, LOL....oh well....gotta love those trolls!
