Metamorphis Monday

Hello everyone, welcome to Metamorphasis Monday. If you would like to join in, please stop by and join our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for all of the details.


Today, I have a very simple project to show you all for Metamorphasis Monday. A couple of months ago I was at Hobby Lobby & found a jar that had a Fleur-De-Lis lid on it. I seem to have difficulties passing up things with Fleur-De-Lis' on them! Can you believe it was on clearance for $3.20??? I knew I wanted to put it in my kitchen, so I would have to change up the color a bit. This is what it looked like when I first purchased it:

I simply applied one coat of spray paint. I then got some sand paper & sanded it down a bit to make it look worn. Here is the final result:

You can pretty much change up the look of anything with a can of spray paint!

I hope you all have had a wonderful Monday. Do not forget to stop by & see all of the transformations over at Susan's place.

Oh, I love it! Did you paint your cloche stand too? I have one nearly like that but it's green - I really like yours in white!

Hi Nicole,
Somehow I missed this post. I, too, love fleur de lis and what a great idea for a bargain! I don't know about you, but I am getting so used to bargains, that I can't appreciate a regular sale in a store! Linda
