Please, tell me I'm not the only one who likes to make projects out of things that would otherwise get thrown away. It's not uncommon for me to save my kids toy packaging, cardboard, soup cans and jars in hopes of turning them into something useful. It's a slight problem that has added to the mess in the office/craft room :) So, of course I had to save the spaghetti sauce jar from our recent dinner the other night.
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the jar, but knew it was too perfect to just be recycled. It ended up sitting on our kitchen counter for about a week until it finally hit me.....turn it into a my laundry room tip jar!
Now, I also know I'm not the only one who finds money in the laundry! Sometime's I'm lucky enough to find an occasional $10 or $20 bill, but normally it ends up being a quarter here and there. My laundry room was always a mess and the spare change always got thrown on top the dryer. Now that I'm all about organizing and making over the laundry room, my "tip" money needed a proper space.
After removing the label and cleaning the jar well, I sprayed a few light coats of Krylon's Jade in satin. I think this color is officially my new favorite spray paint color! Trust me, it looks even better in person.
After the paint was dry, I designed a label in PicMonkey and glued it to the front of the jar using Mod Podge.
