My latest find

I found these:



... at the Salvation Army for $2.99 a piece. Lucky me, they were on sale for 50% off because they had a little blue sticker! Could it get any better then that?



They are pretty dated for my taste with the lids being wood, but I was determined to make them awesome!




I am daily inspired by this blog and this blog to do new things around the house. So, I am being more purposeful about that.




So here they are again, before I did anything to them.



And my supplies.



First I took all the tape off, and then I sanded the lids.



Then I put a layer of black acrylic paint on them.


I ended up doing 2 layers of black and 2 layers of acrylic varnish. Look at my fingers!



Then Rockstar washed the jars for me and viola! Here are finished pots!



I just love them!

What project have you completed lately?
