Paint is more multi-purpose than we thought. It turns out it is a multi-parts of speech word. But don’t share this with your linguist friends or you may end up in a debate vortex. Is that where the name of the national club, Speech & Debate originated? I’ll leave you with that as we turn back to the paint. The bigger discovery is how painted glass accessories are a game changer for craft enthusiasts and grandma.
I use the word accessories loosely because paint is a game changer for jelly jars and Costco size pickle jars. I saved a few glass pint size glass milk jars from Sprouts. White spray painted bottles against a dark backdrop. The glass bottles look so regal!
Paint is a universal solution and likely a form of therapy for many.
At my house, the paint was a game changer for the 12 + glass pumpkins stored in a closet 10.5 months out of every year.
I was this ———- close to donating my assortment of small and large size glass pumpkins.
I bought them when a national candle chain went out of business years ago.
Every year, I haul them but the glass pumpkins and glass accessories, in general, were hard to showcase.
Does that make sense?
It might explain why the candle store went out of business.
They even have a place for a votive candle in the back.
Because I had over a dozen glass pumpkins I was willing to sacrifice one for the purpose of the brush vs. spray paint application.
I preferred the ease of spray paint. But, the paintbrush strokes accented the grooves on the pumpkins.
Just make sure you either prime the glass or use a primer + paint.
The painted glass makes for unlimited colors. options and techniques.
With the white paint, the pumpkins popped against my Hale Navy dining room wall.
And the white pumpkins look amazing against my living room hutch.
Stay tuned for the latest living room hutch. That hutch has had its share of makeovers this year.
I live vicariously thru my hutch.
Now is the time to run thru your house and pull out the glass jars you saved for some future project and have a little fun with paint.
I would love to see an assortment of painted, upcycled glass jars. How cool would that look against a dark background?
