I know there are millions of these out there

Ok I admit Apothecary Jars are ALL OVER blogland, but I have loved them since I saw the first post.  I picked up some old candlesticks at a garage sale this fall, and knew just what I wanted to do with them. 

They were crying out for some of my handy dandy black spray paint.  I love spray paint.  There is just something about using it that makes my feel like a ninja! 

So I sprayed the candlesticks and the lids to some old jars I had.  I only wanted three so when I glued the jars on I also glued together the two matching candlesticks.  I loved the extra height.   It adds some extra drama.  I also chose to use different shape and sized jars.  (Since I started making jam my Dad has made sure to save every jar he gets his hands on.) 

After I got them all put together, I thought they needed something so I added a little ribbon to make them look more finished. 

I found this cool felt rose place mat at dollar tree and thought it was too cute.  I love how it pops on my black buffet top. 

I may add finial pieces later, but I like them just the way they are.  They look so cool on my new funky buffet.

Clever. I guess I need to keep my eyes out for cool shaped things like you did. The transformation from wood to black is amazing! (PS...I also love the fun buffet)
