Kilner Jar makeover

I'm continuing the studio makeover to make it a shared space, and was trying to find a way of making the paintbrush collection a little nicer to look at.

I had 3 boring Kilner Jars, so once they were thoroughly cleaned, I painted them with chalk paint. I put on two coats as I was concerned that the brushstrokes showed a lot, but I don't think I'd bother again - one will do!

Once the paint was dry (I left mine overnight) I sanded off the bits where the writing was and around the glass screw at the top.

I decorated with some twine, and hung a few baubles that were to hand, around the neck.

These should look ok on the new dressers.
