{ DIY}

Hey, everyone. It's a gloomy Monday here in Michigan. More Ball mason tips & tricks. This is another set of Ball Mason jars I sprayed & distressed. I painted two,one was this size & one was a larger "Mom" mason. I simply sprayed them with white { Gloss finish}. Next time I will use a Flat finish for a more rustic appearance. After the inside & outside were dry, I took a nail file to them & distressed them a bit. I also wanted to mention I did use a non -acid silver tip pen{Michael's} to lightly go over the words & raised parts of the mason. This makes the rustic effect more visible & less effort. Just a small tip/trick. Hope this helps anyone going Ball Mason Crazy :).
{I placed these on our fireplace in the upstairs living-room . I also placed tall cinnamon stick sticking out of each of them}

Time for a change up in the kitchen! The buffet cart that was posted on a past post just received a face lift. If you remember it was an old buffet cart my neighbor pitched. It had an ugly dark chipped veneer finish & needed a much needed cleaning & paint job. I ended up painting it bright white & adding  black & white peel & stick paisley print paper. It matched perfect with our paisley parson chairs &  decor. Well..that was over year ago & the kitchen is nothing like that anymore. From recent post you pry can tell the kitchen is more of a rustic luxe with more creams,/ sages. I ended up peeling the paper off & hand painting{ last time Spray Painted} it a solid cream. The project was a success & only took about 2 hours in all. This project was a free face lift as I already had the cream paint.
