Amazing Makeover


Glass Jars
Spray Paint
Goodies to fill your jars


Don't throw those spaghetti and pickle jars away!! Reuse them and make them into something pretty to store stuff in. :)

First, remove the jar lid and drill a hole in the center.

Then, spray paint your lid any color you like. I used Antique Bronze by Krylon.

After your paint has dried place your knob into the hole. The screw on my knobs were really long so I had my husband use one of his fancy tools to cut it down so it didn't hang into whatever I had in the jar. :)

Here are the knobs I chose.

Now, I have to label everything when I get the chance! I LOVE labels! So these poor jars were going to have to get labels too. I decided to use chalkboard paint so that I could change the label whenever I changed what was inside. This is what I like to use:

To make my label area I used blue painting tape and taped off a square on the side of the jar.

Using a foam brush I then filled it in with the black paint.

I had to use about three layers of the chalkboard paint before it became opaque. Once it is dry just remove the tape and your ready to LABEL!!

I think these jars turned out really cute and can't wait to have them in my kitchen to use everyday! I hope that you are inspired to make something pretty out of your old pickle jars too. :) Have a good night!
