I love me some Mason jars. I especially love the vintage blue ones., but I only have two of them. I have lots of clear ones around Clutterhome, though.
Today, while putting away dishes, I accidentally slammed a mason jar onto the counter too hard. It didn’t shatter, but it did crack a little and I don’t think I can use it as a glass anymore. What to do, what to do?
I remembered I saw these really cute painted Mason jars over at Curbly.
Now, I don’t have any extra flowers laying around so I didn’t make flower pots. But, I do seem to have an excess of kitchen . . . stuff. There’s a reason we call it Clutterhome. I’d love to be one of those people with a tidy kitchen, but we’re too busy keepin’ it real and all that.
There’s a pretty easy-to-follow tutorial for spray painting Mason jars over at 100 Layer Cake.
I just took a couple jars outside and gave them a coat of white and yellow paint. Easy, peasy. And there you have it, folks.
I even have a happy Kool-Aid spoon added in to keep everything nice and cheery. Instant broken-Mason-jar-turned-kitchen-storage. Do y’all have any tips for reducing kitchen clutter or for repurposing Mason jars? If so, please share them in the comments section. I’d LOVE to hear them!
