Spray Painted Mason Jars

IMG 7143 Spray Painted Mason Jars

I am looking for cheap projects to change 
the decor of my kitchen a little.

I have dark cabinets which I totally regret now…
but 4 years ago when we built the 
house I was in love with them.

I have a different outlook on what I like now, 
mostly whites and creams and bright accents…
a few pastels too.

But since most of my house is browns, 
it’s really hard to incorporate those colors. 
Once the sofa needs replacing 
(which may not be for a while…sigh), 
it will be easier to create that new look I’m going for.

So for now I’m just picking away at the little 
things that I can display in the kitchen & dining 
area that will give a pop of color.

And you can’t get any easier than spray 
painting a couple of mason jars 
and adding a pretty ribbon.

All I did was spray paint several coats
to the inside of the jars, 
letting each coat dry in between.
Nothing to it…
quick & cheap!

  1. Great project Sarah! I’ve done that before but with just pouring paint into a bottle and rolling it around, then pouring out the excess. But I’ll have to remember that for a gift I have coming up. Hey, I’ve been trying to decide on new cabinets — so dark is too dark? I’ve been considering a medium brown, but perhaps I should go with white? thanks for the heads up AND — for joining me and becoming a VERY COOL PEOPLE — at * simple sequins * !!! (i think we are going to get along great :) )

  2. and… Ps. I put your BUTTON on my site! (i tried to get on to Linky too but they claim my email address is already used??? hmmmm,) that buggs…

  3. Very cute! I just used a similar process and love the look of colored jars. I really like the gingham ribbon on yours too.

    I love mason jars also, I however spray paint them on the outside, This way when you use them, the paint doesn’t get inadverently scratched off.
