Today I’m over at All Things Girl talking about spring blooms and unconventional containers. You can see my piece here.
I’m really loving the ranunculus that are keeping me company in the kitchen. I decided it would be fun to paint my ordinary Ball jars from the super market to give them a more joyful look.
If you’d like to create this look, here’s what you’ll need:
– Glass Canning Jars
– Paint Brush
– Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
– Fine Sand Paper or Wet Paper Towel
Simply paint with two coats of your favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Color. I’m loving Arles, Paris Grey, Old White and Provence for this but any color would be gorgeous.
Once dry, sand with a sanding block. You can also use a wet Viva paper towel and wipe away. I found the sanding block to be quicker.
Here’s how the jars looked after:
These would also look great to store rulers, markers, paint brushes or other crafting items. I absolutely love flowers and have been filling my house with some beauties from Trader Joe’s. I picked up these great ranunculus for $5.99 a bunch.
I trimmed them…
and have been enjoying spring inside my home. I love the wild and very country look of these flowers with the painted jars.
What about you? How are you bringing spring inside your home?
