Recently, I’ve been working on filling up the open shelving in our kitchen. I want it to be both beautiful and functional. We do have a pantry, but it’s really small. So I decided to store some of our food on the open shelves as well!
I decided to transfer all the food that would work in clear glass jars from their boxes and bags. I asked Emma what type of airtight jars she thought were best, and she recommended these Weck Jars, which I love, by the way!
How Do I Label the Jars?
I wanted a label system that would be easy to change out and wasn’t super fussy to keep up with. At first I was planning to buy a label maker, but then I remembered paint pens!
Do the Paint Markers Stay On?
I tested two colors. I also wanted to know how hard it was to get off. It’s actually perfect because it won’t come off if you just wipe down the container with a paper towel and water.
But, it will come off if you either scrub it with a textured sponge or throw it in the dishwasher.
I’m planning to add eight more jars on the other side of my shelves soon. They are so practical! You can store coffee, cereal, pancake mix, tea and all kinds of other things.
Thanks for following our big and small projects! I love the big ones the most, but the little ones always make my day. There’s something SO satisfying about those projects that you can start and finish in one day! xoxo- Elsie
