After looking at the pictures of my pantry that I took for the wallpaper post last week, I was mortified. How is it that you can look at something day in and day out and not see it. But when I saw it photographed I saw it in all its unorganized glory and was shocked it had gotten that bad. With the rain and my recovery from my daughter's 80's Birthday party, I tackled the project...
Started with Benjamin Moore chalkboard paint
Taped off with blue painters tape a bunch of glass containers and ball jars
that are just sitting around until I start jamming and canning again in May.
(bought a couple of these glass container at Target for $5.00 each)
Painted with chalkboard paint and let them dry for a couple hours.
(Now I have a whole shelf on the bottom that I can use to store more...yippee)
Now everthing has a container and a space...and I was able to make a list of all the pantry items I am out off or low on and I can buy those in bulk at the health food store and put them in my remaining mason jars. It is more econonical and they will stay fresher in the canning jars.
I have my chicken meds--Vet RX and colloidal silver, sugar cubes, turbinado sugar and bakers chocolate
all up high to keep my three year old out of them.
I was able to fit a 5lb bag of bulk sel gris in one of the giant ball jars.
I don't know why I didn't think of this before, it is so much easier to find everything.
Now my pantry is all tidy and organized but my house is a mess!
I am joining up today with Faded Country!
