Welcome to Repurposed Ideas Weekly Blog Hop. Please join me to share your ideas about what you’ve repurposed this week.
I decided to paint some mason jars. I wanted to put something on my kitchen table that felt like fall. So I picked up a can of spray paint at the hardware store for $3.50, the total cost of this weeks project.
I had a number of mason jars that were no longer good for canning purposes. I chose four of them and cleaned and dried them. I took them outside and spray painted them. I hadn’t spray painted anything in a long time, so it took me a short time to get the hang of applying an even coat.
After the first coat dried, I decided I would like them better with a second coat. The entire project took about 30 minutes. I let them dry overnight, and then placed them in my kitchen as flower vases.
