The easiest way to make your home look more summery is to add some fun beachy accessories around the house. These textured beachy mason jars are simple to make because the weathered finish comes from the consistency of the paint itself. You can use the jars to hold candles or flowers, or just set them on a shelf to add color and texture!
I am privileged to be one of Plaid’s Ambassadors, and they occasionally send me new product to try out. This coastal texture paint was one of the new products I was interested in after seeing it at CHA this January. The paint has a texture that is almost like whipped topping, and when it dries it leaves a fun texture that is meant to look like the piece was “weathered by the sea.” I live in the middle of the Great Lakes so I am not the best judge of the paint’s sea-weathered finish, but it looks cool!
I made this short video to show you how I layered on the paint to create a distressed, beachy finish on these jars. It’s best to apply this product in a dabbing motion, as opposed to a typical painting stroke, to get the best beach texture. When it is dry, you can use sandpaper to distress off some of the finish for an even more weathered look.

I finished the jars off by adding some natural jute twine around the top of the jars. If you are planning on using these jars as candle holders, you might want to skip that step for safety’s sake.
