It’s springtime and I have this urge to brighten the house up. But of course, we have to stick to a deposit. I found some little glass vases at the Dollar Store and went to the hardware store for some glass-friendly spray paint for under $4. The colors in my kitchen are muted turquoises, avocado green and a gold-like mustard. What it needed was some brightening up!
I kind of had a dual purpose to this experiment. I have a big 10th anniversary party coming up in the middle of next month. If they turn out, these will be such easy and inexpensive centerpieces!
I started with a number of different glass jars, from the Dollar Store to marinara and peanut butter jars with their labels scraped off and cleaned with Goo Gone.
I used Rust-oleum’s Painter’s Touch Lagoon in Satin and sprayed just about everything I could find!
It was super easy. I sprayed the bottom side first and tried to get as much of the sides as possible. I sat them out in the sun and they were dry to the touch in just a half hour. I then flipped them over and sprayed again, covering the top part and the sides if I missed any sections. Just two coats and they dried completely within an hour.
I absolutely love the new addition to the kitchen windowsill. It’s perfect for all of our new cut spring flowers.
