MacKenzie Childs Inspired Cookie Jar

Clearly I am obsessed with MacKenzie-Childs lately.  

The MacKenzie-Childs cookie jar is another one of my favorites.  The cookie jar sells for $52.  I knew I could definitely recreate this for less.

Here are my versions-they cost me a total of $15 each.  

I found these two cookie jars at Target for $4.99 each.  They were perfect because they already had a knob that I could remove and replace.

To make the painting process easier and smudge free, I used skewers and put each of the lids over a plastic cup.  I painted several light coats of linen white.

Using the same process as with my other projects,  I marked each lid with dots to form a grid and started painting.

Once the lids were dry I added aqua highlights and then finished it all off with polyurethane.
The knobs I used were pricey at $10 each.  I found them at Anthropologie.  I could have used less expensive knobs, however these had the brass base which mimicked the MacKenzie-Childs knob.

Even at $10 per knob the whole project only cost $15/jar vs. $52/jar.  Plus I was able to have a larger and smaller cookie jar...MacKenzie-Childs only sells one size (large).

  I am loving my new cookie jars.

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Judy- Those are just wonderfully done! I love them and the knobs were so worth it for the pizazz they add to the lids. They are the perfect finishing touch. I say you could sell these all night long! xo Diana

Oh my gosh, those turned out so pretty! The knobs were worth the $10 for the pop of color they give. You could even change them if you had the urge. You sure make the painting part look easy...I'm not so sure about my skills with that but would love to try it. :)

One basic objective of any drug rehab is to make and condition where a patient can feel sufficiently great to be completely forthright and not feel judged. Shockingly, history gives us that the GLBT populace is one that during that time has been judged and misconstrued by the larger part in the hetero community.Any drug rehab that professes to give drug rehab administrations to the gay, lesbian, swinger and transgender populace (GLBT) there must be at any rate, a gay well disposed drug rehab condition.
