Okay, I'll admit it........I love Pinterest. I have boxes and boxes of canning jars down in my root cellar, so how could I resist the Pinterest siren call to craft with mason jars. Not every idea I try from Pinterest actually looks the way it's suppose to, but if I say so myself, these turned out FANTASTIC!

Functional Art End Table "Pink Hibiscus" - Amberson Art


I wish I would have remembered to take a before photo of this. We found it sitting on the curb with a bunch of garage sale leftovers. I had to turn around and get it because I could see the potential in that poor lonely little end table. Craig gave it a fresh coat of white paint and then I did the rest. I think this piece turned out wonderfully and I am going to try this same idea on something bigger like a antique dresser or sideboard. 

Functional Art End Table "Spring Dream" - Amberson Art







Humble beginnings. Craig sanded this end table and then applied several coats of semi gloss white paint. It looks like a blank canvas just crying out for some color.


This January in WA State has been so drippy and chilly, I wanted to do something to satisfy my craving for Spring. That said, I also wanted to add a contrasting element that would make the colors pop even more. I think the black on white stripes and circles accomplish that nicely. The photo above is about 12 hours into the painting.


Now you can start to see where this piece is heading.



All finished! Can't wait to start the next one!
