I have a boring kitchen.
A clean kitchen…but a boring one.
I have a large space but it is long in length and really difficult to pack much decor around my massive bar style table.
That means when it comes to decoration I really have to up my game. And this week after listening to hoards of decoration ideas from my friends (and feeling even more sad about my white and dull space), I decided that if I cannot create the kitchen of my dreams, I could up my kitchen cuteness by refreshing and customizing the tiny items as showcase pieces.
Like little DIY Decorated Spice Jars
If you are in the same boat as I am or you are ready to start on the road of your own DIY projects, this may be a good start for you! In addition to this being a fun craft that just about any age can complete, the style will be uniquely your own. As a bonus, its super inexpensive!
Create DIY Spice Jars
- paints ( I bought a set of Martha Stewart Pains that work nicely)
- spice jars – I picked some up from the glass section at a local craft store for 50% off, so about $1.50
This is super easy! Just dot on in different patters your pain colors on the bottom of the jars.
That is it! I love doing my own jars because they bring in a bit of whimsy in a popular style for your kitchen. Plus for the items that often come in bags or boxes you can create jars to hold and display them. Take for example my sea salt and toothpicks. They were in a box and a bag…ugly.
Now they are out and ready to be used!
Btw, just to bring you in my home for a minute…here is my kitchen space! It’s a work in progress.
