Got some boring old jars hanging around that need to be put to good use? Me too, so I made use of some extra chalk board paint and turned them into neat storage jars [1] with built-in labels. The process is simple – take a clean, used jar, add a swipe of chalk board paint, paint the lids and let dry. I use mine to store my milk paint [2] for my artwork [3], but I’ve also made larger ones for homemade granola to give away as gifts. These handy and stylish jars could be used to store all sorts of stuff like rice, pasta, flour, spices, buttons, puppy treats [4], or even yummy cookies [5]. What will you store in yours?
