A Weekend DIY

Obscure shades of spray paint make simple items seem so much more unique. So when I stumbled upon this article about mason jars in Ready Made, I figured this easy project was the best one to try out in my "spare time."
Do grown-ups [I use that term very loosely when referring to myself, by the way] really have much spare time anymore??

 I happened to have a couple metal stakes from an old vampire killing spree fence. These worked perfectly and allowed for a nice even spray around the jar.

Because house plants tend to turn suicidal in my presence [I swear it's not my fault...] I opted out of making planters. Instead, I took the jars already in use, and fancied them up. :)

This is an incredibly simple DIY. But sometimes you need to read about or see an idea to even consider trying it.

I have some leftover green spray paint...and am itching to use it..on what? :)

  1. Depending on what type of paint it is, I would try painting silverware. I'm kinda obsessed with it.
