I was very happy to see these two jars in the window of the charity shop - I was even happier to get the two for £5.00. Because they were already black, it was easy to visualise that they would be perfect for some chalkboard paint spraying.
This is a DIY project I have wanted to try for a while - especially as I have my eye on 'making' this little piggy bank, so I needed a project to experiment with. And yes it is really easy - remember though thin coats. HOWEVER I tried to spray paint half a mug (trying to go for a Pantone look) and that did not go well at all... So it seems to be easier if your are spraying a whole area - or it is my masking tape that let me down (or me putting the masking tape).
Now I have more jars to put ribbons, buttons, pins etc. But also as I am not too fussed about finding the same shape of jars, I can have 'matching' chalkboard jars in my sewing room..
