Welcome to the Fall Blogger Challenge.
DIY Jar Challenge. For this challenge we are happy to collaborate with JarStore.com who supplied us with these beautiful Anchor Hill Heritage Storage Jars.
The Jar Store has an amazing variety of items to choose from. Be sure to check out their site.
The rules for this challenge is that there are NO Rules except that we all use the same Jars. I was so happy when I opened up my box and saw this style of jars.

So many ways that these could be used. I have been wanting a new set of canisters for my kitchen so I set out to create a kitchen look.
I knew I wanted to paint the jar. To paint glass it has to be clean and dry. These were new jars so I cleaned the lid with rubbing alcohol. If they had been used jars I would have washed in soap and water, dried and then cleaned with the rubbing alcohol.
This Rust-Oleum Painters Touch is fantastic spray paint. I have tried other brands but nothing, to me, covers or holds up as well as Rust-Oleum. This is the gloss white.
I was painting outside, but it happened to be a windy day. So a good tip to remember is that you can put your item that you are painting inside a cardboard box and spray it that way. This works great and keeps all the paint fumes outside.
Here is the finished look. I think the white lid goes very nicely with my black counter tops and white cabinets. I will be painting the other jar lids for a set of 4 storage jars.
Oh, ONE MORE THING. Here is another option that I thought about:
DISTRESSED NO DISTRESSING
Which jar lid look do you like? I would love to know your thoughts. Please leave a comment below or send me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This paint really bonded to the jar lids and actually took some sanding to get the distressed look. They will hold up well.
Can’t wait to see how the other bloggers styled their jars. Below are the links to check them out.
It was so fun working with this group of talented ladies. I hope you enjoy the rest of the projects and don’t forget to check out JarStore.com to plan your next project.
