Painted Jars

I recently saw a bunch of sweetly painted jars at a local shop. Adorable, I thought, and how cute one would look in our apartment! I took one look at the price tag though... and thought, Hmmmmm... could I do this myself? So here goes the quest for a cute painted jar.
I found these "smooth jars" at Michael's, and spray painted them with a glass primer. Here they are looking quite ugly and grey:


I got one of them painted a base color of brown today. I'm thinking this weekend I'll try to paint it with a little fall scene. I do love fall.

Hey, great idea! I can't wait to see what they look like when they're finished! I love your blog, by the way. :)

What a neat idea! Do be sure and post pictures of the finished project! It is always fun to try to reproduce something for a much lower price tag. :)

That sounds like so much fun!!! I've been saving some of those little Starbucks frapachino (sp??)glass bottles for ages in the hopes of finding something cute to do with them...this just might be it! :) I can't wait to see your finished project.
