I decided it was time for another remake on this jar. Last year I painted it blue and gave it a summer theme.
This time I decided to give it the look of a vintage French olive jar. This was a pretty simple makeover. The first thing I did was to coat the entire jar with "Timeless" chalk paint.
Next I used two colors of green acrylic paint mixed together to paint the top portion of the jar.
Here is the look I was going for. An original jar can sell for as much as $2,000.00 to $3,000.00. Way out of my budget.
So, I made my Fax version of the jar.
After the paint was dry I used a distress ink to age my piece.
And lastly I gave the green paint a coat of Mod Podge to give it a glazed appearance. It was such a gorgeous day I took the jar outside to dry. Today was in the mid 60"s. Such a beautiful day, definitely can feel Spring in the air.
And here it is all dry and back in the hallway in front of my mural.
And filled with greenery.
