chalkboard paint spice jars

Before Liam was born I started working on small, manageable projects to pass the time while we all waited. One of them was painting the lids to our spice containers:

It took a few coats to get the plastic tops covered:

The reason I wanted to cover the top is because of how we store our spices in the "new" house. We used to have stickers identifying the spices, which works when you're looking at the jar, but now that we have a spice drawer, we only see the tops of the bottles, which makes it a pain in the butt to find the right spice.

I know, "rich girl" problems...

So this is what I've done to help me out:

It's not actually chalk, cause that would wipe off and drive me crazy...

But here's what it'll look like in the drawer. As you can see, it's way more practical. 

Now to finish labeling them all and alphabetizing them. Yes, I am that type A... I enjoy having things in alphabetical order. I love organizing the most random things; spices included!
