Transform your space with texture. It’s the one element that completes a space and brings it to the next level.
Glass Jar Makeover
- Glass Jar (Danielle used pickle jar)
- Jute or Twine Rope
- Glue Gun
- Cut a piece of rope to fit around the lip on the top of your jar.
- Loosely tie it around the lip of your jar, and don’t knot it tightly yet.
- Cut your vertical ropes. Recommend cutting them about 6 times the length of your jar. How many vertical pieces of rope to cut depends on how dense you want your netting to be
- Attach the vertical ropes to the jar using a lanyard hitch knot
- Repeat this step with the remaining pieces of rope and space them out evenly. After you get them attached where you want them, tie the rope around the lip tightly.
- To tie the knots on the netting take one piece of rope from two adjacent vertical strands. They should form a V when holding them. Tie a knot with these making sure to hold both strands together.
- Move around the jar making your knots with the remaining ropes. Try to keep them all at the same height.
- Repeat the same steps as above for your next row of knots.
- When you get to the bottom, hot glue edged to the underneath of the jar – being sure it is even so the jar isn’t wobbly.
- Lamp w/ shade
- 1” wide trim
- Wood Stain/Rag to apply
- Hot Glue Gun
- Spray Paint
- Separate lamp from shade.
- Spray paint lamp base (Danielle used black) and let dry. May need a 2nd
- Measure height of lamp shade. Then remove fabric from the metal rings.
- Cut wood trip into strips that are 1” longer than length of lampshade. (Danielle’s shade stood 7” tall, and wood strips were cut into 8” length).
- Sand edges of wood strips.
- Apply stain to wood strips and let dry.
- Use the hot glue to adhere the wood strips to the lamp shade rings. Apply strips all the way around.
- Put lamp shade back on the lamp base.
- Cane webbing (comes in rolls)
- Staple gun
- Remove glass inserts from cabinet doors.
- Paint cabinet (Danielle used Country Chic Paint, “Licorice”)
- Cut cane webbing into proper length to cover door
- Soak cane webbing in warm water for 30 minutes
- Remove cane webbing from water and pat dry.
- Attach the cane webbing to the glass insert sections for the cabinet doors using a staple gun.
- Once all webbing is applied, cut excess cane.
After about 24 hours, the cane will completely dry and be nice and taunt/tight.
