It is an outrage the number of jars and plastic containers we have to discard every day in a house. I’m keeping them because I like to re-use them, you can always find a different use that what they already had without having to go through a recycling center like for reclining sofa. The other day I started to sort them by size to try to gain some space and suddenly I had an idea.
I had several of this size and thought it was ideal for pantry storage such as nuts, bay leaves, salt … well, they gave much play. The first thing I did was gave them a thin coat of handmade chalk paint because it works wonderfully on glass, and then sprayed painted them. I did the same with the plastic lids. I like the fast and clean finish with spray, really.
They dried while I thought about what I was going to put them in, and when I decided I remembered having some pretty labels from Aviat Studios and added the text I needed. Then I printed and transferred them to the jars following the same process as here.
This is another of those fast and cute projects I love, and I have a few more bottles ready to add to the collection.
What do you think of the result? I love them, but I would like to know your opinion 🙂
