Farmhouse Style Container Upcycle

This project is such a stunning before and after! What a transformation these little farmhouse style containers took on. It's amazing how much of a difference a little spray paint can make! Especially on thrifted items. Check out how I fixed up these containers for my kitchen decor!
I got my hands on these little jars from a yard sale. Best find ever! And I knew from the beginning that I wanted to fix them up.
I started by painting the dark gray parts of the jars with a fresh light chalk paint in a lovely gray color.
I then spray painted the jars white.
This white and gray go so perfectly together!
I added a little bit of a distressed look where they were originally scuffed up and just love how it adds a rustic charm.
And that was it! So easy! And such a big difference..
I love having these displayed in my kitchen. To see more, head over to and visit me at The Crafty Carlson!

Thanks for reading!
