The array of spices that we’ve acquired over the past while seems crazy – especially with my interest in all the different Asian dishes (Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, etc). Last count, I think I had around 60 bottles (!!!) of different herbs & spices, and various blends. I’ve been trying to come up with a better, more accessible means of storing them – and thought that small mason jars might be a good choice. So, off to Google, and came back with this great idea! Blackboard paint and mason jars – perfect!
On another blog, the recommendation is to use a brushable blackboard paint – for better control, and less mess. I like this – as I can do it in the house then!
I’ll have to practice my chalk writing so the jars look as good as these!
Think I might use shelves to hold all the mason jars – I think the color of the spices would be great out in the open, as well as make sure they are readily accessible.
