After redoing our deck last year, we wanted our kitchen, which flows out into a back room to the deck, to have some style consistency. But the kitchen is yellow, and we had red and yellow furniture in that back room. Without wanting to completely redo the kitchen colors, we purchased new furniture for that back room. One of the pieces of furniture, a small table with four ottoman/seats, has become the kids’ de facto art/homework table, and was getting cluttered and messy. So, I decided to make something that would store those supplies in a neat and attractive way. I bought my supplies all at Michaels, but I see that many of them are also available at Amazon.
DIY Mason Jar Art Supply Caddy
Here’s what you’ll need for supplies (you will have paint and 2 jars left over):
Ball Jar Heritage Collection Pint Jars in Blue (the green jars would also work)
Krylon 3700 Natural Stone Decorative Aerosol, 12-Ounce, Granite Finish Note: I found the finish to be less granite-like and more like a gray stone.
3M Garnet Sandpaper (any wood sandpaper will do)
I brought everything outside so I didn’t have to deal with the spray paint in the house. Be sure to really follow the instructions on the paint aerosols, especially the directions about shaking the can.
Start by sanding the crate down just a bit to remove any rough edges.
Following the instructions on the can, coat the whole top of the crate with the natural stone decorative aerosol.
One the caddy dries, tip it over to paint the bottom.
Finish with another layer of paint if needed.
Spray the looking glass mirror like aerosol into each of the 4 Ball Jars. Start with a small application.
Repeat the looking glass mirror like aerosol application into the Ball Jars at least one more time (more for a stronger finish).
Let everything dry overnight, and then it’s ready to use!
