Chalkboard Jars?

I've developed a strange obsession with Jars...specifically food jars. I know...weird but I feel bad for just throwing them away (no recycling in our area yet) and they actually are great for crafting.

Once I am done with the jar, I soak it, wash it and remove any remaining glue or date stamps with some Commercial Strength Goo Off. Works like a charm.

Annelise helps with the taping!
Then just apply some chalkboard paint with a cheap foam brush, let dry and then apply another coat.

Repeat if necessary.

And there you have it...chic craft room storage.
