Recycled Ginger Jar by Peggy Oliver!
Happy Monday Morning to all!!
In keeping with this month's Reuse and Recycle I went to the second hand store and found this.
My find was apparently a ginger jar estimated $40.00 (that I found out later) lol
I painted this jar originally with chalk paint To my dismay this left A lot of streaks.
I sanded, rubbed and finally it came to me this must be spray painted.
I am smart.. just not quick.. haha
Finally I took out my eBrush by Craftwell and sprayed over my streaky mess. I chose chalk paint from Americana DecoArt a color called Refreshing. I used Debi Tullier's video as my lead and watered it down a bit so it would work with my siphon.
Lastly I used some sticky lace stencils with some white acrylic paint to try to draw attention away from my now bumpy surface. This was a bit of a trial and error project but I thought I would share anyway. My end result was not terrible but I certainly would have done it much differently and used my eBrush to begin with.
