These 3 projects required zero artistic ability to make and created pretty storage for things I use daily. Not every project or re-purpose has to get all in depth and channel your inner designer.
I loathe clutter so I make the things I need to use daily functional and beautiful. That means I don't buy many things just to decorate with, most things in our house serve a purpose. The things we have just for decoration are things we love.
The less stuff a gal has the less stuff she has to clean and the more time she can spend doing something she loves to do.
To clean candle jars to re-use them freeze the jar and remaining wax overnight and it will pop right out when tapped upside down. Any residual wax from a messy candle comes off with Dawn dish soap and scrubbing.
