Jar Obsessed: DIY Chalkboard Label Weck Jars for Kitchen Pantry

Anthropologie is always selling cute jars with chalkboard labels and I love the idea.

I went to World Market feeling like the crazy jar lady wiping them out of their entire collection of their beautiful German made Weck Jars and started jarring all the spices in my kitchen pantry! {You can also purchase Weck Jars at William Sonoma and Crate and Barrel}.

Here are some shots I went a little crazy with it but it looks great!






I went the lazy route and bought some ready made chalkboard labels from World Market but you can easily make your own if you checkout this DIY tutorial here:

DIY Chalkboard Frame Tutorial

I always look forward once a month to go to Scott’s Antique Market here in Atlanta. It’s full of treasures – old window panes, ceiling tin, antique furniture. I picked up this really cool frame made of ceiling tin and decided it would look great in my kitchen with a chalkboard put in.
