Pineapple Jar DIY

To call this a DIY is quite the stretch.
It's more of an insider tip.
Here it is: Even a really ugly pineapple jar can be revived with a little spray paint*.

(* I am not opposed to spray painting anything. Anything!)

I found a pretty rough looking pineapple jar at Goodwill for a few dollars a while back.
It looked like this:

I wanted it to look more like this:

And if that jar does nothing for you painted gold then here's some 
pineapple goodness I found when I was out and about in Atlanta.
The pineapple trend is alive and well but I have to tell you it's nothing new for me. 
I grew up with pineapples in home decor. 
My mom had iconic pineapple wallpaper and accessories when we moved to Atlanta in the 70's. Probably before but that's what I remember! Go mom! 

I found these in a thrift shop.
 Oh, happy day!:)

I want to build a pool so I could have that cool float.
OK, I admit it. I always want to build a pool. Cool float or not.

And I would fill that up with something fruity and delish
 and sip while floating!

and from Etsy:

You are the Pineapple of my Eye


  1. Oh my gosh, how smart!! It's amazing what paint can do.
