Every spring season, I see shabby chic home décor in every store and I fall in love all over again. Two weeks ago, I share the Memo Board project, but this week, I’m focusing on corralling all of my pens, brushes, and supplies with this Mason jar storage solution.
Shabby Chic Desktop Storage with Mason Jars Directions:
This shelf originally began as the Art Deco Wallpaper Ledge Project. However, I was never really thrilled with the colors I had originally picked for it, so I decided to give it a makeover. If you are starting with a fresh ledge, then you will need to begin by pushing the White Sand texture paste through the Art Deco Wallpaper stencil with a palette knife. Allow each side to dry completely before moving on. Seal entire ledge with a clear acrylic sealer so that the moisture from the next steps does not saturate the texture paste and cause it to move.
Blend Plum Chalkboard Paint with some white acrylic paint until the desired shade of pink is achieved. Paint entire ledge pink, using 1-2 coats of paint to get a nice, solid finish.
Water down Dylusions White Linen paint with water and blend until the consistency is like water. Brush white wash over entire surface, allowing it to pool in some areas. This will make the texture paste design really pop and stand out. Use a heat gun to speed drying process.
Cut strips from the Pretty Posy Paper Pad and apply a layer of white wash solution to the patterned paper. Adhere to the Mason jars with gel medium and wrap a length of white jute trim around the center.
