Now that our household is predominately Paleo (that means mostly Paleo, yes I know there is rice in this picture, calm down Paleo Police), we buy a lot of our groceries in bulk. I don’t know about you, but I’m not a huge fan of plastic bags and plastic containers all throughout my pantry. It starts to look cluttered very quickly. So I decided to use canning jars and other random glass jars I’ve collected and recycled to store our bulk ingredients. This was a cheap and cute alternative to buying a bunch of storage bins.

MATERIALS

• Recycled jars with matching lids
• Spray Paint Primer
• Chalk Spray Paint
• Old Box or something to spray on top of
• Latex gloves (the chalk spray paint I used was extremely drippy, not fun to get off)

DIRECTIONS

1. Clean jars and lids and let dry completely.

2. Line lids up on top of box, and spray with Primer. I used two thin coats. Let dry.

3. Spray with Chalk paint. I used three coats. Allowing each coat to dry completely before applying the next coat.

4. Let dry for 48 hours.
