Current Obsession: Painting glass jars and bottles

You’ve seen this ALL over Pinterest right now: Painting Mason Jars, painting bottles, paint dipping glass jars, etc.

And can I just say I LOVE IT?

I mean, it’s not a revolutionary idea, but I’ve been pretty obsessive about painting jars, to the point that they are currently the only projects I’ve been working on or rather focusing on.

I attempted last week to do my own version of the “dipping” look. They didn’t turn out as amazing as the Pinterest tutorial I found from The Beauty Department. They also utilized spray painting rather than hand painting, which, gives it a much cleaner edge. But I’ve just decided that mine will now just be “Shabby Chic” so to speak.

I didn’t realize I had used the same colors until after I had completed these jars, whoops! I guess sub-consciously I really loved the color combo and that stuck with me! I’ve been very into the metallic and grey-gradient of colors lately, very monotone. But I think they are classic and modern, so thank you ladies for that inspiration!

I must say that I did not love mason jars right away. That obsession came from my friend Catie (who I’m trying to do a guest post on her FABULOUS grad announcements) who has been obsessed with the jars for ages. That girl has fabulous taste! (OBVIOUSLY, because after all, we are friends.)Below are my projects:

These are continuous projects, will show final products soon!
