Cookie Jars

So, I had a moment of "can't-stand-this-clutter" and decided to clean out from under my sink.

I found a couple of things that I knew I could spruce up.

I love it when that happens. Free projects!

I decided to try a couple of different things....I'll show you one now and you let me know what you think!

This cookie jar had fit my color scheme about 9 years ago, and let's be honest, housed nothing but little pieces of junk instead of cookies. So, under the sink it went!

I wanted to try this new aquamarine color out. I gave the jar a coat of primer and then went to town with the aqua. So smooth. I liked it!




But, it was missing something. It was a little too....blah.

I decided to paint a dandelion on it.

What do you think?





I like it, but maybe it looks too messy? Suggestions, please!

  1. I LOVE the color! And the dandelion is really cute! Maybe take away a few of the "fly aways" and it won't look so messy?

  9. Dang I love Krylon. They need something miraculous like this for stretch marks. Just spray and they'll go away.
