It’s that time again folks… Pinterest Challenge time! A “kick your butt into gear and stop pinning, start doing”.
Last time around I stenciled some curtains, and the time before that I whipped up a yarn wreath. For this summer version, I didn’t have too much time on my hands so I thought I would check off one of those projects I have been meaning to do for ages: spray-painted mason jars. You can see the pink ones I pinned here.
I had some of the big mason jars leftover from our wedding last year and some blue spray paint kicking around, so this was a zero-dolla no-trip-to-the-store kind of project. The perfect kind of project, if you ask me.
I started out with a light coat of primer (Tremclad’s gray primer).
Then some fun preppy blue in a satin finish. I didn’t want anything too glossy, since I wanted these little guys to look sort of aged and chalky. You know what I mean, right? I think I did about 4 really light coats – just misting basically. Any little drip would be super noticeable, so I tried to be really careful.
And here they are all done! I love them. So cheerful and sweet.
I didn’t have any flowers on hand for these photos, so I just used some grasses (arghm… weeds?!) from the lawn. Just try to imagine how cute they would be with a few white flowers.
There you have it! A super-simple project you can do in an afternoon. I still have to spray a coat of clear sealer on the jars (so that they don’t chip), but I can’t wait to dot them around the house with some fresh flowers.
