I live in an apartment here in Los Angeles and although I’d love for my garden to look like Versaille, space is limited. If you’re also dealing with a garden space issue or just looking for a creative way to add a little color to your home, then this hanging shoe organizer garden project is for you.

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.
