Pretty Bathroom Jars

I'm in love with the new shower curtain I bought for my kids bathroom. (target)
The colors and design are just too fun.
I decided to decorate some jars that we could hold cotton balls, Q-tips and cotton rounds in.
The result makes me so happy. I love the way our pickle jars turned into such pretty storage.




We were recently sent some of the brand new Americana multi-surface Satin paint. I've been a fan of Americana paints for many years... so I was excited to give these a try.





Supplies:
• pickle jars - or other glass jars with lids
• Americana multi-surface paint - we used the colors pumpkin patch, pink cadillac, coastal waters
• curio knobs (we used the tim holtz ones found at michaels)
• paint brushes
• E-6000 glue



Steps:
• I put my pickle jars and lids through a couple cleaning cycles in the dishwasher
• We picked out 3 colors and gave each lid about 4-5 coats. (I should have gave them a quick coat of grey primer - it would have saved me a couple coats -  the words on the lids can be a pain to cover completely)
• Then we put them aside and let them air cure for 7 days
• We took the bottom screw out of our curio knobs and used the E-6000 to glue the knobs to the center of each lid.
• Let that dry for another 24 hours and then they are ready to be used




The Americana Multi-Surface Statins are available for purchase at Michaels, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby, and other fine craft retailers.  You can also take advantage of this great rebate that's good for the next couple months!

  10. What kind of paintbrush works best? Foam or bristle? I don't know if I could get coverage that even. The jars look amazing.

  14. I think this is a cute way to use some glass jars I hate to throw away. I love that shower curtain and how the lids match. It's all colorful and cheerful. Thank you for sharing your idea.
    Ladies, the curio knobs are by Tim Holtz at Michaels. She has that listed next to them in the supply list.

    1. I would think it would work alright. You'll have to let us know. :)

    2. I will for sure let you know. Also, instead of super gluing the knobs on, I used the screws that came with it, cut the screws down, and screwed the knob on. Worked great! Now I just need to the knobs back off and paint. I'm thinking of spraying an acrylic sealer over the paint. It might make it more shiny

  24. Excellent idea to use the brown paper template. I collect clocks also but have never displayed them well. I will give this a try.

  25. IS THERE A WAY TO AVOID HAVING TO UNSCREW THE JARS? MAKING IT EASIER AND THE KNOBS USEFUL?
