Olive and Jam Jars


Have never looked so pretty..my friends are all into my recycle challenge...they have me a box at work that people deposit different things they want me to alter.. I got these jars from Anne Marie. 2 olive jars and 1 jam jar from a unknown donator. I made these in the decor to match my craft room. ( one day when it is decorated that is). I love, love ,love fu-fu as my mom and MJ call it. I like everything fancy and girly. So one is for ribbons bits, one is for favorite buttons, and the other is for lace bits. I love my can of flat spary paint and have used it several times this week. My cabinet handles used this very same paint. I used scrap papers from other projects like my remote control caddy posted earlier and pits of this and that..All papers come from Hobby lobby as well as embellishments used..So frugal I am. I have had this project in my brain for some time now, so glad to let it out. Have a great day.

Very nice, very Victorian! I really like how you used the different heights of the wood turnings to make stands for the jars.

Hi Dee Dee, I just wanted to say that I love your blog! I love altering and repurposing items for other uses. Your jars and that hanger are too cute! And thanks for becoming a follower of my blog as well. I also have another blog regarding my "junk" finds and altering them. It's a fairly new blog with a ways to go, but stop by if you wish. http://treasuresofthepast.blogspot.com
