I painted the inside of the mason jar with the turquoise paint and found the flowers at Walmart for $1.50. I painted the top of the shelf solid black, but it cracked and showed the primer beneath, and I actually liked it so much I didn't paint over it!

The upstairs hallway painted in primer:

My sister Anna:

And that post was so long I'll have to wait for another post to tell you my new ideas! :)
