I have a fun, easy little jar up-cycle for you today. I know, I know…It’s a Cinch was SOOO last week, but easy peasy, lemon breezy projects are addicting.
The satisfaction of a completed project is so satisfying.
This is coming from a girl who has been working on a door turned something-or-other project for what…like 2
years months?!?! It’s coming along, really it is kind of.
But my filing-cabinet-files-organization-project-turned-filing-cabinet-upgrade project has turned into a mini office organization project. And I just so happened to have been washing out and holding onto empty glass jars without any real plan for use.
Then I taped around each jar and used a glue stick to adhere some beach sand for additional texture.
And then, because I can’t leave well enough alone, I added a few small shells and pieces of sea glass.
I stopped that after two jars because my little supply corner was getting a bit busy for my taste. I like the touches of color, but do love me a good monochromatic look. Especially one made with natural elements – jute and sand.
So now I have pens, pencils, binder clips, tacks, paper clips, and rubber bands in a variety of jars on my work space and newly updated file cabinet … which I am also now using as a magnet board. Bonus!
So happy I’ve taken this baby out of the corner. She has definitely gotten me moving on a my work space/office upgrade.
This is the first time in the over 2 years we’ve been in this house that I’m creating spaces that are bit of a reflection of me. Jaime might even call them “Karah projects”. They make me happy.
Enjoy your space today!
