Recycling = cute organizers!!
in their former lives, these containers held products like Nestle Chocolate Milk powder, Carnation Instant Breakfast, Grits, Oatmeal, etc....
but now they look like this!!
I can repurpose them as needed - just a quick wipe off on the outside, write the new name and it's ready to hold something new! : )
Remove any labels they may have (like the Nestle container had). Some of these will be used for non-food items like my box tops, buttons, etc. I gave them all 3 coats of the chalkboard paint - seems to be plenty, because so far so good!
It keeps a couple extra things out of the recycling bin and helps keep my home a tad more organized. (Still have a looooooooooooooong way to go before that is all done, haha!) For the cost of a can of spray paint (under $5 at Home Depot), this was a super-easy, frugal project!
What's your favorite thing to use chalkboard paint on?
