Everytime I look for a spice in my cabinet, I get frustrated. I buy all different brands, so therefore all the jars are different sizes. The tiny ones always seem to hide, then I end up buying more, only to discover it was there the whole time. I feel like I pull half of them out to find one. Enter Pinterest with a solution!
I saw on Pinterest where someone had cleaned out baby food jars and spray painted the lids with chalkboard paint. I have a shallow drawer next to my stove that is the perfect size for those little jars. I don't have a child, so baby food jars are I not something I buy. I hated to waste all that food so I went looking on Ebay. Who knew that you can buy clean, empty baby food jars sans label and everything??
I used this paint:
And I opted for a liquid chalk paint pen instead of traditional chalk. The paint pen doesn't rub off as easily. They say you have to use a wet cloth to remove it. So far no smudging! I bought mine through Amazon. I'm sure you can find them at craft stores, but since I have free shipping through Amazon Prime, sometimes it's just easier than running all over town!
I'm really happy with how my spice jars turned out! No more searching!
