I was sent some products to try out from Plaid, along with a gift card to Walmart for any other supplies I may need. First off, did you know that Walmart has expanded their craft department?? It's awesome - my store even jumped over across the main aisle for more room...
Do you remember a couple of years ago when they downsized the craft section and took out fabric (at least my Walmart did ) to make room for a bigger electronics section - - and then mine brought back fabric a few months ago and I jumped for joy - - and now the whole craft department has expanded recently - take that electronics! Crafts rule! See, they have tons of stuff:
Plaid - awesomeness!
Anyways, moving on - - I picked up these super awesome mason jars - I didn't even know they made these:
I love how cute and squatty they are - -
I had in mind to create some organizational jars for my craft room - - with the prospects of a new craft table, I want to get that room more organized. First I painted the lids with Chalkboard Paint - it took 3 coats - here's coat 1:
Meanwhile, I grabbed the craft paint and painted the inside of the mason jars. Kind of going for a milk-glass effect:
Then so the paint inside won't scrape off, I painted a layer of mod podge over the white paint, again on the inside of the jar:
Next up, make them useable for my magnet board:
Now that the paint had dried on the lids, I primed them by rubbing them with chalk and then wiping the dust off (the one in the corner has been wiped off:
Then I used my chalk marker (love those things) to write on the lids:
So now I know what's in them:
Here's an ariel view of the jars - - so cute!!
magnetic makeup board - - so this is a board hanging on the wall and the jars hold themself onto it - perfect:
This is going to be awesome when I get the final touches of my craft room in place - I can't wait!!
Disclosure - - I was sent Plaid products and compensated for this post - - but all opinions are my own and I really do love Plaid and Walmart! I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Plaid Crafts and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.
here's what others have been making...
