White Apothecary

I love apothecary jars and I love using white as an accent color so I thought, why not combine the two? My lovely in laws brought me this apothecary jar from the thrift store. He actually works at a thrift store and is able to get first dibs on most things that come in. Doesn't that sound like the best job in the world?!? Althought I love this jar just the way it is, I have a few others that are clear as well. I wanted this one to be different.

So...I grabbed some white spraypaint and got to work. I really like the way it turned out!

Love it. You just never look at things the same way once you have held a can of spray paint in your hands! Do you prime glass or just go for it? Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

Great idea! I too have a few glass ones, but to make them white - brilliant. Did you prime the glass, paint the inside or outside?

Thank you all! I normally prime glass if it's going to get a lot of wear and tear but I didn't prime this one and it has held up really well so far. I think even if it gets a few chips of paint off it, it will just add a little character. I painted the outside this time because I didn't think I could fit the spraypaint nozzle all the way inside. I'm going to try to find one with a larger opening and paint the inside. I will let you know how it goes! :)

That's gorgeous. I definitely like it better painted. It looks like porcelain.
