Painted mason jars have been kind of a trendy item for a few years now, but honestly I love them and I don’t see them going away any time soon. They seem to look just right in so many different home decor setting and they’re super quick and inexpensive to make! So basically, what’s not to love?

I’m pretty sure this is the style of mason jar painting that I would consider the most popular.
First, I’m going to show you how to paint this jar using the same custom mixed chalky-finish paint that I used on  my front door. This style is always good for adding a little texture and farmhouse charm to your home.
This next style of jar painting is really stunning and takes almost no effort, even though the end result is super fancy looking.   Again, working with a clean jar, lightly spray the inside of your jar with Mirror Effect spray paint.
The third style of painting jars that I'm going to show you is high-gloss. Just like the other two it’s super easy, maybe even the easiest, but the effect is really neat. It makes the jar look sort of glossy and modern, but also kind of vintagey at the same time and the lettering on the jar ends up looking really neat. [For more tips and the full details on how to get your jars painted in one of these three looks, head on over to the full blog post by clicking on the link below!]
