Cute way to serve drinks to guests! I love drinks in jars!
I found the photo @ unplugged because they had a great idea of doing the same with a rolling mini office. I love the original idea as well but it works on many levels. A rolling craft centre for you and/or your children. A cooking centre complete books and and rarely used tools and appliances. Portable shelving is the bees knees no matter how you utilize it.
I liked the rag MUCH better. I got a smoother finish and less of that brush stroke look. Also I thinned the paint much more by this point. I was using probably 20% paint and 80% thinner.
Ok, so next step is to bake the jars in the oven. This step locks the color in, makes them dishwasher safe and gets rid of that tacky/sticky feeling they have. First let them dry for 24 hours. Then bake the jars in a 325o oven for 40 minutes.
And then I thought I’d accessorize them just a tad by adding some wire around the neck and as a handle.
Then I eye-balled how long I wanted the handle, added a bit more for twisting it on and cut.
Buy two sets of brackets, using one set for below the books and a single bracket for above. Measure the thickness of each book and start drilling.
I have been living out of a suitcase for 7 months. I didn’t realize that I would miss having a nest as much as I do. All my shit fits in a tiny storage unit, and I want to keep it that way so I can travel on a whim!
