So I love to be organized, sometimes I feel like that is impossible though. I have this amazing walk in pantry that I love, but it is so unorganized and cluttered. I see these awesome pantry’s on pinterest with all their food in glass jars and I love it! I kept telling Loren I want to do that, just never really could break down and buy all the jars. Then one day in Hobby Lobby I noticed their glassware was half off so I took a peak at how much a jar would cost, they were like $6 full price making them $3 half off. I couldn’t resist! I threw some chalk board paint in the cart and went home to start my organization project! I initially used cardstock for the labels (cut out on the cricut), then I spray painted them with chalkboard paint and taped them on the jars. I buy alot of bulk spices so I wanted the chalkboard labels so I could change the name quickly if I got a different spice. So here is the before and after pictures:
I was very excited, but then the labels started peeling off. No matter how many times I stuck them back on the jars or how much tape I put on, they just wouldn’t stay!!! GRRR!! I though about gluing them but wanted to be able to take the label off if I ever wanted to do anything different with the jar.
So I thought about it for awhile and then came up with a new idea. I bought these shipping stickers, it was like a huge sticker and cut the labels out on the cricut and spray painted them again. Then a stuck them on the jars…problem solved!!!! No more peeling labels!!!
So even though I am very excited about my organized pantry, eventually we will re-do the shelves, floor, and paint….down the road when we remodel. But for now it is just fine!!
