DIY: Matte Black Mason Jar

Miss Kris Painted Matte Black Mason Jar DIYI know it’s Spring and we’re susposta be all about color and what not, but I’m currently having a very black and white moment. I’m obsessed bouquets full of white flowers and I think the contrast of a black vase really make the arrangement stand out. So chic! Thankfully because of an intense relationship I had last Summer with mason jars, I have a few laying around. With a coat of paint they can easily be transformed and repurposed to use this Spring. This little project is beyond simple. You can complete the look of a room or the theme of a party in just seconds with these painted jars.

Here’s another idea… apply the chalkboard spray paint and add a personal message to your jar. This would make an absolutely fabulous gift for a special someone.

Currently: IKEA Spring 2014

Miss Kris Currently Loving IKEA Spring 2014This past weekend, with a Starbucks vanilla latte in hand, I made a trip to my local IKEA to pick up a piece I neded for a DIY I’m hoping to share with you soon (hint: bar cart!!!!). While I was there, I figured I’d take a loop around the store and just “look”. Needless to say I ended up leaving with a big blue reusable bag full of goodies. Here are a few of my latest purchases from IKEA that I’m currently loving. Nothing of $100 and NO assembly required!

DIY: Light Brite Inspired Framed Monorgam Letter

Miss Kris Light Letter Glitter N Glue DIYRecently I’ve been obsessed with anything monogrammed. I had this light brite/ pegboard monogram “K” since this Summer but had to wait until the Christmas decor was in the store so I could get my hands on some lights. This is such a fun and easy project. You can personalize it with your own letter or spell out any words you wish.

*It’s important that you find a frame that is rather deep so that you have somewhere to store the cords of the lights. I found the PERFECT frame at Ikea (here) for $15. It comes in silver but you can spray paint it any color you wish.
