I have been a little preoccupied this week with the new house – painting, packing, etc. – so that hasn’t left me much opportunity for thrifting. Today will be our first Thrifty THROWBACK Thursday because, to steal the hipsters line, I was thrifting before thrifting was cool.
In March I picked up this pretty cool spaghetti jar for $4.99 at Goodwill.
So I taped off the area around the writing:
I filled the entire area in with black paint to disguise the lettering and then wrote “treats” on it in my own freehand lettering (I’ve been practicing for a long time, I suggest using a stencil if you don’t have a steady hand.
Thanks for bearing with me during this crazy hectic week! Soon the real fun begins – recycling and reclaiming my way to a delightfully DIY house!
