Our little photo shoot last weekend prompted me to tackle a project I’d been wanting to do for a while now. I found a small wooden frame at an antique store, and I’ve been wanting to turn it into the chalkboard sign for Bella’s toy box in this photo:

I figured it would be cute now, and she could actually play with it later. Coincidentally, as I was clearing off my workspace I happened to flip through an old copy of Martha Stewart Living and saw this little project:

Cute jars painted with chalkboard paint! And I just happened to have a bunch of baby food jars just waiting to be used for… something! In no time, my newly tidied workspace looked like this:

Did I really need chalk labels on my new storage containers? Probably not. But I do think my office supplies look much cuter now.

    very cute, and yes you did indeed need lables.

    That looks fantastic, did you paint it straight onto the glass or onto some type of tape and then stuck it on the jars? I would really like to do this for my little ones playroom. I love the chalkboard look. :)
