There I was digging things out of the recycling bin again. Pretty Handsome Guy gave me a raised eyebrow, but he knew better than to question my motives. I had that idea bulb flashing over my head, and I was ready to transform some jars and tins. With Springtime just around the corner, it was time to force a little vibrant color into our home. I introduce to you the cheapest way to bring Radiant Orchid color into your décor! If you have recycled jars and tins, you are set!
- Kilz Primer
- Paint brushes
- ScotchBlue Painter’s tape
- Sample pot of Pantone Radiant Orchid (available at any Lowe’s Home Improvement)
Optional: Gold vinyl stripes or washi tape
Clean out your jars, bottles or tins.
Coat the exterior of your recycled vessel with primer. Allow to dry.
Paint each bottle and tin with radiant orchid paint. Allow to dry. You might need two coats depending on the coverage.
Wrap your tin, jars, or bottles with painter’s tape. Lightly paint primer on the exposed areas. Once dry, add a second coat and remove the tape immediately before the second coat dries.
Once the white primer is dry, outline the white stripes with gold stripes or washi tape for a little blingity bling bling.
Set some fresh flowers or a plant into your containers and enjoy some vibrant Springtime color! (For the metal tins, I put an empty jar inside and/or a plastic bag to keep them from rusting or leaking. That’s my little secret. )
Welcome Spring! So glad to see you peeking through the cold gray clouds of winter!
