I adore mason jars...it's kind of becoming an obsession. I've seen them chalk painted, but wanted to try out some of my new Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint on some. I grabbed some plain glass jars at Michaels the other day, pulled out some of my chalky paint, and got to work making my version of Chalky Painted Mason Jars...
I used Everlasting, Escape and Yesteryear. This paint is phenomenal, and can be found at The Home Depot! It goes on so silky smooth, but dries in a matte finish.
I painted two coats on each jar, then used a clear wax on them for protection, and to really bring out the color.
I plopped some faux hydrangeas in them and placed them on my breakfast nook, and smiled. I actually made these to use with my Christmas decor, so you are kind of getting a little sneak peek of the colors I'll be using this Christmas ;)
Do you love decorating with Mason Jars?
