So I took the lids and layed them out, using a spray can metal primer.
Now I loved the metallic grey she used, but my corner really needs some color. So I grabbed the Pink! I know it's not really a grown up color, but what can I say, I love pink, almost as much as I love red. Maybe I'll change it up someday if I get sick of pink, but for now it's a great spring color. And considering we're still getting snow I need a pick me up!
Then filled the jars and popped on the lids! You can see what I started organizing, ribbons, beads (for socks)wire, buttons, glass tiles (for an upcoming project), etc... Perfect...
Then I went by DI and found a WHOLE lot more jars! Now I have my glue sticks, pens, pencils, erasers, dremel bits, scratch pad, tape, thumbtacks and more right at my fingertips! Now I just have to close the shade and hope my almost 3 year old doesn't get too curious until I can find a slightly more out of reach place (right now she'll have to climb on a chair, then table to reach them, but I'm sure she won't mind...). This is my version of spring "cleaning". I would like to put labels on them, but rather than etch I think I'll add some chalkboard paint so I can move the insides around still!
