    Those are beautiful! But, doesn’t it bother you that people will snicker when they see No. 1 & 2 jars in your bathroom? Or do I just have a puerile mind? (Probably… I’m afraid that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw they were placed in your bathroom.)

      Oh dear, my head is in the gutter, as well. I do have to say, however that you did a phenomenal job and really nailed “the look”. So cute!

      That’s exactly what ran through my mind too! Some days my sense of humor reverts back to summer camp at 11 years old… But once I got past my giggle I really thought this was a clever transformation. :-)

      Oh my goodness, Kelly!!! I never thought of that – ack. Now I’m going to have to be on the lookout for something to add at least a “3″ to so that it’s not just 1 and 2 on everyone’s mind. :)

    I never thought of the ‘number one and two’ in that way before. (well you know what I mean) The jars are adorable. I wish I was more creative. That is awesome.

    Great transformation! I love Martha’s paint, too.

    I do have to snicker a bit with #1 and #2 in the bathroom, lol. Although what came to my mind first was Dr. Seuss with Thing 1 and Thing 2. Or Alice in Wonderland, with those “drink me” bottles. Very mysterious at any rate — which definitely tickles my fancy.

    Love it!! I’m always on the lookout for jars… I have one that looks identical to your #2.. it was a candle and it now holds my cotton balls. I also repurposed another candle ceramic container – brown though and it holds my q-tips.

    What a great find!

    They look lovely! A designer item for sure. Never even thought of the 1 and 2 as some have commented. They look so fresh and clean. What a good way to keep things undercover in the bathroom. I’ll bet you’ll be on the look out for 3 , 4 and 5 for the next while!

    I noticed the price tag said, “Goodwill”. Our Goodwill stores’ prices in Washington State have gone up drastically I hardly go there any more or donate. I garage sale more now but that is definitely not a year round activity in this state so I have to wait for Spring. Good find, and I too, like the black over the blue. Good choice.

    I love the simple transformation, very cute! I never even noticed the #1 &#2 thing, but it did make me giggle when I read it. :) I noticed your Ikea canister in the background of the last picture. I have the same set of canisters and I did a tutorial on how to make the lids look galvanized if you’re interested. You can see that here: http://thecozyoldfarmhouse.blogspot.com/2012/04/kitchen-canisters-makeover-with-faux.html

    Oh this is just the inspiration I needed. I have seen egg cups that look very similar to your project that I’ve wanted but couldn’t justify the price. I picked up some plain ivory ones today for about one fifth the price…now you’ve shown me that I can have the same look as the ones I love.
    Fantastic post!!
