While running some errands at Home Depot, I ran into something that I couldn't resist taking home with me:

Frosted Glass Spray Paint!

As soon as I got home, I ran around the house trying to find something I could use this stuff on. When I walked into the laundry room, I knew I had the perfect idea.

This is my sock jar. It's where I keep those mismatched socks that come out of the dryer without their counterpart. It's helped me match together many a separated pair (like that white sock that's in there in the photo... his buddy magically appeared in another load a few days later!).

I found some letter stickers and tape and got to work:

I put the stickers on the jar, and taped off a square around them.

Then, I followed the directions on the can and sprayed a few coats.

When I took off the tape and stickers, here's what I ended up with:

A labelled sock jar!

It's definitely not perfect (I think I peeled everything off before it was totally dry, and if I had to do it over again I'd use stickers that were a little less whimsical), but I love it, and was a perfect quick project for playing with the frosted glass spray. 

Has anyone else tried out the frosted glass spray? I'm hoping to find something else to use it on soon!


  1. I love this! Really neat idea.

  2. That frost spray is the coolest thing.. I def want to try it with something! I think your sock jar came out super!
