The other day I found a package of Martha Stewart chalkboard labels that I had bought more than a month ago with a 40%-off coupon for about $3.50. I don’t know why I hadn’t used them yet, but it probably had something to do with the fact that I didn’t know where I wanted to use them when I bought them and had forgotten about them in the meantime.
Then I walked by these jars that have sat here looking like this for about, oh…8 years.
And all of a sudden I remembered the labels.
Isn’t it funny why sometimes a thought comes to you out of the blue? I mean, I walk by these jars multiple times every day on the way to my workroom and not once in the last month has the thought occurred to me that I could use my $3 chalkboard labels on them.
Anyway, about five minutes later, the jars looked like this:
And I just have to say, what a fun update! Not only are they cute (chalkboard stickers = brilliant, btw) and make me smile all those times I’m sauntering past, they are functional.
Since being home for the summer my daughter has been doing some cooking and I have answered the question about which flour is which enough times that the idea of having them labeled is fantastic. Perfect. Wonderful.
Come to think of it…I guess it wasn’t so out-of-the-blue after all, was it?
This is one of the easiest and least expensive update I’ve ever done and I LOVE it!
What would you put chalkboard labels on? I do have a couple more to find a home for…
