Thoughts on Project Runway Season 9 & the genesis of a simple D.I.Y.

So last night i did not get to actually watch the premier of PR Season 9. I will watch it this weekend, but i did view the online gallery of designs that were featured on last nights episode, and i was not WOW’d.

Nothing really impressed me about any of the designs. I cant pick one single design that i would wear. I dont think i would wear any of them. Hopefully they were just nervous and we will see some improvement as the season progresses.

Now for the birth of a new D.I.Y i am attempting!
I went shopping last weekend at World Market and i found these:

The link to purchase these jars is here.

They range in price from $5.98-$9.98. When i saw them it looked simple enough to make, so i decided i would try it myself.

I bought Valspar Chalkboard paint at Lowes:

I purchsed jars similiar to the ones at World Market at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. (Hint–Everything goes on sale at Hobby Lobby. If something is not on sale, just wait until the next week because it will be on sale.)

I also bought this green painters tape at Hobby Lobby:

Here is the beginning of my project:

I put tape onto the jars in a rectangular fashion. I liked the rectangular version better then the circular version. I had only added one coat when i
took the picture, and last night i added another coat. I will show you the finished product once it is finished!

I am SO looking forward to the weekend. I dont know what we have planned, but i am sure whatever it is will be wonderful!

XOXO
