Jennifer from White Tulip Designs is joining us for her very first Country Chic Paint blog post! Come read about how she turned an ordinary mason jar into this unique vase with Elegance and white wax.

Hi, it’s Jennifer from White Tulip Designs. Today I’m sharing a sweet little painted vase project. You’ll start with blue painters tape and a large canning jar (I used a wide mouth Ball brand jar.) I also used Country Chic Paint’s All-In-One Elegance paint as well as Country Chic Paint’s White Wax.

This time of year I love to buy cheap flowers from Trader Joe’s or forage for them in the yard and it’s nice to have a large, more casual “vase” to put them in.

To create something with a vintage-y feel I chose the Elegance color since it has the same pale blue of a porch ceiling.

I taped out a wide band around the lower portion of the jar, leaving the decorative detail open so I could free-hand that part. Then I let it dry for about 3 hours.

Next, using a lint-free cloth, I hand applied a coat of the white wax, going a little heavy around the details to make them really stand out. I used a Q-tip to clean up around the edges where the wax went beyond the painted area.

To be sure the wax had time to dry really well I let it sit for about 3 days before I added flowers. Doesn’t it just look like springtime?!
