I use mason jars for lots of things at my house. We use them to make sauces (put the lid on a shake-easy!). We use them as drinking glasses. We mix paint in them (we don’t use the same ones for eating and paint mixing, just for the record). I have a little collection around my room that hold pens and other office-y supplies. And there’s one in my bathroom that holds my toothbrush and a few make up brushes.
I love the look of clean mason jars; rustic, simple and (dare I say it) a little bit country. I’m into it. All the way. But I saw these pretty jars on Apartment Therapy and I thought it’d be fun to spruce a few of mine up. So I did.
All you do is: 1. Gather some paint in colors you prefer and some clean jars. 2. Add paint to the jars and swirl/drip it all along the insides of the jar. Use a paint brush to help fill in any areas you missed. That’s it! This took less than 10 minutes (plus overnight drying time) and I have two fancy jars in my room and bathroom now. Small little projects and improvements are fun!
