Giving new life to something otherwise considered trash... is SWEET! Get glass jars ready for their next life with some chalkboard paint, and a lil imagination. Because Valentine's Day is around the corner, Gadora chose to fill her new jars with candy... but they'd be happy in any pantry holding a quart of rice, flour, and sugar... For a detailed how-to, check out GadoraWilder.com.

Gadora_Wilder writes: In response to "itsnotjunk2me"... I thought the egg cartons was a great idea too, until I looked underneath the lids. They need to be sprayed on a FLAT surface to avoid the extra step of removing any sprayed paint underneath. BoooOOOoo. Sure makes for a fun picture though, doesn't it? (I have an all together different idea for those egg cartons... some day.....) Posted: 5:58 pm on January 21st

my husband asks me to wash out (slippery project) the mircle whip plastic containers so he can store his nails in them. (sometimes i just throw them out..but don't tell him) Posted: 2:00 pm on January 21st
itsnotjunk2me writes: I too love your repurpose of an ordinary item. They look great! I also appreciate your mini photo tutorial- the idea of spraying on top of egg cartons rather than a flat surface is something I had never thought of using! You have a talent for taking the mundane to awesome in simple easy steps. I am smitten with chalkboard paint too! ~judi ;) Posted: 1:41 pm on January 21st

oldnews writes: Very Cute! I'm with you, no jar ever goes to waste here either! I use them in my work shop to organize nuts, bolts, etc. and in my craft room for everything from buttons to embroidery thread! At school the plastic ones hold game markers, counters, and crayons! LOVE yours!! Marie Posted: 10:01 am on January 21st
