You all probably know by now that we moved into our new home in January. Since then we've been slowly working on projects throughout the house. Not to mention preparing for our little Sprout. Most of the time this means that things are terribly unorganized....which I hate. But between house projects, work, and growing a baby...I'm usually too tired to bother with organizing. Which is why there are stacks of baby clothes all over the living room. ;) They are organized by size but not put anywhere. lol.
Anyways...StickerYou provided me with a solution to one of the things that has been driving me crazy! Our spice drawer.
|A beautiful mess right?|
A couple of years ago, Pinterest inspired me to put our spices in baby food jars, label the lids, and stick them in a drawer. Which, honestly, I love. No more rooting around a cabinet - I can see what's what with just a quick look. And yes, I do need more baby food jars to get some of those other spices transferred. I did blog about the process way back when here. But there are a couple of things I really dislike (which are noted in that post):
1. I used acrylic paint because I'm cheap and it's what we had on hand. Because of that it scratches off easily and doesn't have a nice finished look.
2. I hand wrote, with a Sharpie, the names of the spices on the lids. My handwriting is horrible. It's legible but really not very pretty. I should have had someone else do it. Even Hubby's handwriting would be nice - being a designer, he is pretty particular. ;)
Now, thanks to a whole-house remodel, we have plenty of spray paint on hand. And most of it is for use on metal. :) I have two ideas I had been playing around with. One, I could paint the lids cream to match the trim in our kitchen. Or, I could paint them to match these awesome salt & pepper shakers we found at a flea market (tops were originally a rusty black):
|Definitely a find I am proud of. :)|
When I got word about this review for StickerYou, I started searching for stickers for Baby Girl's room. Except I have no idea what her storage looks like yet, so I couldn't really settle on anything. Then I got the idea to find something for our spices. And I stumbled across these beauties:
Aren't they super cute!?! And they match our kitchen perfectly. I think on top of that bronze color paint, they will really pop! I took a picture to give you a rough idea of what I'm going for - but I haven't painted yet so you have to use your imagination:
|A little rough...I know.|
I did think they were going to be a bit bigger. But that is not StickerYou's fault at all. I remember reading that they were 1 inch by 1 inch. I just thought an inch was bigger. ;) I am horrible at judging size and distance. I should have known better. But I think with some of that bronze paint and someone else's handwriting I will be very pleased with the finished result.
Super thankful for the fun way to organize and beautify our kitchen. :)
Overall, the stickers are fantastic. The process to create them was so simple. And these specific stickers would be great for weddings or showers - you could add text or a picture to each one (though I'm fairly positive it has to be the same thing for every one...which is why I didn't do it). They have some awesome ideas for personalizing an event:
They have SO many awesome options to choose from! You can get stickers for jelly jars, girly stickers, manly stickers, anything you can think of! You can even make temporary tattoos, car decals, magnets, iron-ons, or wall decals! The options are pretty much endless. They are high quality and I am confident that they will last a very long time. Once we get a little more settled I'll probably be looking to get some more! :) Check out this adorable video for a peek at all they have to offer:
