Here is my latest apothecary jar update. Since there isn't a holiday on the horizon, I decided to go with a more universal theme that I can use in between various holidays. At first I thought I might do a generic spring theme, but when you have this many corks on hand, its too tempting to use them : )
I first needed the letters (I decided on an A monogram). I went to Hobby Lobby and didn't like the A in the whimsical style of the only smaller letter they had. It sort of looked like an oddly shapped D. So I went to Michaels and found quite a few smaller-sized letters to choose from . This was the only lower case option (they had three upper case options that I didn't really like either).
I decided to paint them with my trusty Modern Options Sophisticated Finishes Blackend Bronze paint (by the way, I did look for it at Michaels while I was there to see if they still had it, and yes they do, right in the middle of unfinished wood section as before. Its $9.99 full price, but of course use your 40% off coupon : )
With this one you get a twofer. Apothecary jar project and wine cork project!
