We Can Do It Cheaper - Bringing Back An Old One

The Virginia House


I decided to bring up one of the first We Can Do It Cheaper projects from the archives.
Remember these jars?
Read on.....
Have I told you how much I love Pottery Barn?
Well I do.
They have so many great things. Here is one of them...

Pottery Barn

Aren't they cute?
You could fill them with so many things, in so many rooms.

I can't find them on Pottery Barn's website anymore, but I found some on Ebay for $69.99.

Though etiquette tells us never to let one know the price spent on a gift... well, that ain't the we way we roll on with We Can Do It Cheaper. I spent $6 on jars (half off at Hobby Lobby) and $1.99 on enamel paint.

Because I didn't want to spend more money on stencils, I did the numbers freehand, then scratched through them with my fingernail.

Thanks for stepping back in the time machine with me. Show me your projects, old or new!

Love this! You're so creative. I just entered for the first time, with my vanity chair re-do. I've never done this before, hopefully I did it right. :-)

These are gorgeous! I love to store things in mason jars, or any glass jar for that matter. I took advantage of Hobby Lobby's 50% off glassware this week too and make my own vanilla extract. Figured it was more a recipe than a craft so I didn't link up. Love this look!
