Now that they are dried, take sand paper and go over all the writing on the jars. Be intentional when  choosing where you will distress the paint.

4 Ways to Make your Space your Sanctuary

You want to live in more than just a house. It should be a home filled with love, happiness and peace. The outside world can get pretty hectic, so here are a few ways to turn your space into a soothing sanctuary:

1) Create coziness. Find a quiet corner in your bedroom and setup a place to sit and unwind. This could be a desk with a comfy chair or a bunch of pillows and blankets laid out on a plush carpet — the more the merrier!

2) Add your personal touch. Hang up wall prints from artists you love, frame photos of happy memories and display items that make you smile (travel souvenirs, awards, handwritten quotes).


3) Green is good. Plants are a great addition to any sanctuary. They bring the beauty of nature indoors and also freshen the air with more oxygen.




4) Indulge your senses and set the mood. Add lavender scented candles for a calm setting, vibrant artwork for inspiration or a small set of speakers to play music for any mood!
