I sprayed three light coats on the Mason jars, allowing them to dry thoroughly between each coat. It was a hot day when I painted these, so they dried pretty quickly. Spray chalk paint is much thinner than regular chalk paint, so I kept the paint coats light to avoid runs, especially with the first coat. I didn’t try to go for total coverage until the third coat.
Once the third coat was dry, I lightly distressed the jars with 220 grit sandpaper. I used a really light touch because it didn’t take much at all to back off the paint. I then wiped them off with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth and then gave them a light coat of Rust-Oleum chalked Clear Matte Finish to seal and protect the paint.
Once they were completely dry, I filled them up with some lavender and yarrow from my garden. I think they give a nice little pop of color to my hutch.
