OK, so I am a big traitor here.
I have always been a Krylon spray paint lover.
But I gotta be honest with you, and say, Not anymore.
Today, I am sharing how to spray paint a mason jar with Rust-oleum spray paint.
I do believe Krylon has changed up their formula.
The last few times I have used Krylon
I am getting a lot of dripping..which in turn botches up my projects.
I kept blaming it on the color choice.
ummm..NO, it can’t be.
And believe me, I am shaking it, and totally know what I am doing when it comes to spray painting.
what should have been the easiest thing to do on the planet, got botched up from the start.
I first decided I was going to paint the jar with chalk paint.
Which I indeed proceeded to do, and hated the color like poison!
so, plan B.
I had some tomatoe red Krylon spray paint and thought
this would look cute in the kitchen.
So, shake, shake shake I go.
Totally dripped and looked like crud.
Meet my new BF!
Old rusty here came to my rescue.
Although it says, hammered on the can…
perhaps on wood it may appear that way
however on glass
I would say it looks a bit more metallic, which is fine by me.
I actually LOVE it.
No dripping what so ever!
Looks perfect in our kitchen!
I am all about those soft, warm glowing colors…
this fits the bill.
And that is the story of what was suppose to be easy..not so easy,
but turned out in the end after all.
Have a great day!
I will be back tomorrow to fill you in on the latest with the Pinterest party, that you have not in fact seen for a few weeks now.
