A Very Simple Little Re-Do...



Remember this vintage tobacco jar I shared in a recent thrift store fun finds post?


Well, I gave it a simple little re-do.  I just painted the lid white, did a little distressing...


and used it to hold swabs...


It transforms into a wonderful vanity jar...


I love a quick and easy re-do!

Until next time...

  3. It's perfect repurposed for holding cotton swabs rather than nasty ol' tobacco! I love a simple and quick project, too. I've got to quit volunteering to take on our girls' projects!

  8. Isn't it fun when a fast fix brings as much pleasure as a three hour project?

  16. Just a little dab of paint made all the difference, huh?
    I just washed out a pretty candle jar that had a lid and decided I wanted it to go in the bathroom too!
    ...birds of a feather! Pat
