In my last post I had started on my New Year's resolution to organize my homestead kitchen.My latest strategy is to reuse a mix of old jars that were hidden in the cupboards and make them pretty to be on the kitchen counter.
The canning jars are a bit different as are the lids and tops.
I bought these lids after Christmas, on sale.
They came in a set with other designs.
Using the jars to hold different tea bags, handy! Love the way they look with my red appliances. A simple red and white check cloth napkin pull it all together and easy to clean up. I painted the brick in a creamy white paint and aged them with a tan glaze. Very easy two paint colors and brush.
When not being used, the jars line up on the top of the toaster oven. I really do not use that appliance much, except to reheat pizza. It keeps it from getting soggy.
I would love to find the perfect tray to bring the teabags to the table for serving..
Working on other easy and inexpensive ways to organize my kitchen and make it look great as well. Looking for ways to store my dry spices that looks good and takes up less cupboard space.
thanks for coming by.
