Chalkboard Painted Glass Jar Office Organizer

I have been collecting glass jars for some time now. I love incorporating them into our decor, storing little nick nacks and crafting with them.

My latest task was to find a way of storing some of my Desk Office supplies in one area to minimize visual clutter. Chalkboard paint and a big Marshall’s glass jar came to the rescue.

Material needed:

  • Glass jar
  • Chalkboard spray paint
  • Cotton rope (optional)
  • Newspaper or any other paper as a work surface


Step 1. 

Clean your jar with soap and hot water, or in a dishwasher. Make sure the jar is dry before applying the spray paint.

Step 2.

Lay the newspaper on a flat surface (preferably outside – garage, backyard or balcony), make sure you are not too close to a wall or window.

Step 3.

Spray multiple thin coats with the manufactures recommended dry time in between coats.

Once the last coat has been applied, wait at least 12h until the paint is fully cured and dry.

I decorated my glass jar with cotton rope, in case I need to find a place for pins.
