Jar(s) of Hearts

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

This post has nothing to do with hearts. I just really like that song. If I ever go through another breakup I’m going to play that song on repeat…and Rolling in the Deep by Adele. Anywhoo, back to my jars.
I found these glass jars at EV Lutheran Thrift for $3.00 total. I think I found one each week for 3 weeks. At the time I didn’t have a project in mind, but I liked them, so I bought them.  
Before
$0.50


I taped up the glass parts and primed:

I sprayed them down with Krylon’s ORB and Minwax Poly.
I filled the jars with q-tips, cotton balls, and bath crystals.

Love! For only $3 I ended up with the perfect finishing touch for my bathroom makeover.

Speaking of my bathroom makeover...
Every week I’m planning to feature a different part of the makeover; working my way up to the big reveal. This is only part one!

  5. I saw your link at Type A and just followed you. I love what you did with these jars...I would have NEVER thought of it. I am slowing changing all the fixtures in my house over to ORB. Some I'm painting but some I'm just completely replacing. Great inspiration for what can be done with a little spray paint! Come visit me if you have time...

    These look so amazing and I can honestly say that I'd pay big bucks for them if I saw them in a shop. Way to go!
