day 5 repurposing a jar

day 5 repurposing a jar :: labeling storage

chalkboard painted lids tutorial:

supplies needed: lids, newspaper, chalkboard spray paint, chalk

spread out some newspapers & place lids on top, spray paint lids thoroughly with chalkboard paint, wait for paint to completely dry, label lid using chalk, put lid on jar.

if later you'd like to store something different in that jar, simply rub off (erase) chalk & rewrite !

see you on Monday for day 6, have a great weekend !
