Completely Pinteresting: Polka Dot Utensil Jar

I saw this from A Merry Mishap and was inspired!  I actually had lots of porcelain mugs, jars and the paint in my craft closet and have been meaning to get to work!  Seeing that lovely plate of hers (those tiny dots! that random pattern!) was a perfect reminder of a project that I’ve had squirreled away for at least a year!  And polka dots are everywhere right now, which is fitting because I’m such a fan of them!

The paint is cheap, and I got the jar at a thrift store.  It’s actually really easy to wipe away the paint if you need to as you go along, so the project is not very intimidating!  Once you’re happy with your design, it sets up for 24 hours, and then you bake it in the oven.  It’s that simple, and then it’s stuck there forever!  I had every intention to make a similar pattern to hers, but I got in this polka dot trance and made more of a classic pattern.  I am so addicted to this stuff.  I’m still planning on making a complete new set of dishes!

    I just bumped into your blog via pinterest and I’ve been reading for about half an hour. I wish I had more time but I gotta run to my lab to do some experiments. But be sure I’ll be reading. Wonderful site!

    This is such a simple, but wonderful little project. I think the things we can make and use on a daily basis are the best. I can imagine seeing this on the counter each day when you reach for a utensil must be pretty great. :)
