DIY Pier One Chalkboard Containers

So remember these containers from Pier One Imports that I love so much?




Well I decided that I would make some of my own to add to the collection.  First, I bought some jars at the Salvation Army (forgive me for not turning the flash off). 


Next, I had Jason tape the jars so that there was a sqare on the front (Jason is waaaaay neater than I am.  He is a perfectionist).


Next, we painted the area with chalkboard paint.  We put on two coats of paint.

Finally, we removed the tape and cut a decorative edge so it didn't look so square.  This was a very easy project and the jars cost $5 for all three.  They might also look nice with ribbon or raffia tied around the top if that is more your style.
