I bought 3 mason jars from Michaels at $1.27 each (I later found a set of 12 at Wal-Mart for $7 FYI) and that was the only purchase for this project…not bad! I decided to put bathroom necessities in the mason jars (q-tips, cotton balls, etc.) I liked Whitney’s idea on her dining room table to use the picture frame as a tray so I found a frame in my closet and began piecing everything together.
I painted the rims on the tops of the jars with Burnt Umber Acrylic (2 coats) and I painted the frame with Antique White Acrylic (2 coats) and glazed with the Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze. While the paint was drying I cut three circles out of a cute piece of scrapbook paper to fit the tops of the jars and I cut down a coordinating piece to fit in the frame (I did not use the glass on the frame). I filled each jar with necessities and when all was said and done I had a cute accessory for the bathroom counter that is also functional ~ As always ~ Enjoy!
