Organized Spice

So, I finally found the time to organize my spice drawer! I have been saving baby food jars and collecting them from friends and family (Thanks!) to use in my project.

This drawer is right next to my stove, so it is a very convenient place for all of my spices, but as you can see, it has become more inconvenient to find or get anything out of that drawer.

So, here's what I did: I took the jar lids out to my garage and spray painted them (with the door open) black. It was a pretty simple and easy job.

Then I filled my jars with spices, put the lids on them and printed out nice little labels for the lids. Doesn't that look great! I am so excited to cook something now! :)

What a great use for empty baby food jars!

  1. You are amazing! That is a great idea!!

  2. Just want you to know YOU INSPIRE ME so much, Jamie! I just did this project (love it) and I think of you every time I use my "new" spice drawer. (You were smart to use *black* spray paint on lids; I used white & it didn't cover the manufacturer's red printed numbers no matter how many coats I sprayed. A little acrylic paint fixed it, but I share that info as a warning to others!) THANKS AGAIN, friend!
