Antique Chalky Finish Mason Jars | Jaderbomb

I was so excited about this project - I love the chalk paint look and I love mason jars, so perfect match! But before I share DIYs I always like to look in to the cost of the materials involved. I don’t see the point in DIYins something if it’s going to cost you much, much more than buying it already made. Hoo boy, chalk paint is expensive! I was shocked. But I still love the look so I did some research on chalk paint recipes, and found this great piece by Salvaged Inspirations. Now I’m going to purchase myself some calcium carbonate and make up my own chalk paint to make some of these pretty jars (and I have a couple of chairs I’m thinking of painting too!). These jars are not only pretty, but think of all the uses you can use them for - not just decoration on their own, but perfect for holding a posy of flowers, giving as gifts or storing your pens and pencils in!

Wahoo!!! I’m so excited to share with you @marthastewart ’s new frame boarder punch!!! It’s new in the crafting world and I am so stoked I got a chance to review it before it hits the store shelves!
