So, my love affair with chalk paint continues.
Did you know you can even paint glass with it? Seriously?!? This stuff will paint anything. I truly might try painting a human before this is all said and done…
You just slap the chalk paint on the glass item you want to cover and let it dry.
–word to the wise– if you have your hand shoved inside the mason jar while it is freshly painted and the phone rings…let it go to voicemail…
Then decide whether or not it needs another coat…
When THAT coat is dry, wax it with my friend (and yours) Beverly. Then sand lightly to distress the raised design.
I added a frog lid so that it would look like I know how to arrange flowers. You can find these at Hobby Lobby (in their seasonal decor–I can’t find it online) or here or probably 1,000 other places.
I actually don’t think it gets much easier (or prettier) than this. People think you are so talented when you use this paint.
I bet that you haven’t even finished reading this and you are already thinking to yourself “do I have an empty mason jar?” Am I right?
Your family is going to be like “Mooooooom, why are we eating that homemade jelly on EVERYTHING these days?”
Tell them it is all for a good cause, serve them spaghetti noodles ala muscadine jelly and call it an ‘Elf’ movie dinner.
You’ll be painting by tomorrow evening.
Let me know how supper goes..
What do you think of this chalk painted beauty? Have you tried chalk paint yet? What have you painted?
I would love to hear what you think!
