DIY Organization | Glass Pot Catch-all


Do you have that central hub in your home where everything happens? The space where lists are written, scissors are kept and junk drawers are formed? My kitchen peninsula has become this central spot in my home. This space is where I cook, craft, work on DIY projects, go through mail, and write to-do lists. Instead of running back and forth from the office to the tool box to the kitchen (pulling everything out of the junk drawer just to find one rubber band or paperclip, ugh!), I thought I would DIY a catch-all for the little go-to supplies.

Since I love upcycling, I was super excited to partner with Oui French-style yogurt glass pots for my organizational containers. Yes, the yogurt is super delicious and available in 12 different flavors (coconut is a personal fave!), but the glass pots are also IDEAL for reuse, plus you can buy lids, which make them the perfect storage container!

2 reasons why these glass pots are so good:
The Oui pots are clear which makes the DIY personalization options endless (can I get a ‘YAY!’ from all my fellow DIY-ers?).  Once I removed the labels by soaking in hot water and peeling off, I decided to spray paint the base of each pot metallic copper.

The size of the pots is perfect for all the mini supplies like rubber bands, paper clips and push pins that get lost in my drawers. And something not to be overlooked, each jar is the same size. Sometimes when I try to upcycle items to use as containers, they end up being all different shapes and sizes. In this case, I have quite the collection of pots because, well, I like yogurt in my life. This also means that I can always get my hands on more of the same size containers to reuse!
Steps after the break…

What you need:
Oui by Yoplait glass pots
Hot water and cleaner to remove the labels
Spray paint
Craft store shelf


What to do:
Enjoy delicious Oui by Yoplait yogurt
Wash the glass pot and use hot water and cleaner to remove the label and sticky residue. Adhesive remover works great too!
Once dry, tape off the top portion of the pot. Use the spray paint color of your choosing to add personalization. I used a metallic copper color because it goes well with the other copper accents in my kitchen.
Gather all the little go-to supplies around your home to put into the painted jars. Some supplies I collected were rubber bands, push pins, paper clips, screws, toothpicks and matches.
Put the jars onto your shelf.
For an added touch, plant a succulent in one of the pots.

    it was so nice to meet you today in the studio, but I forgot to ask where can I order the tops? I’m thinking of doing mine for makeup

    1. Jenni says:

      So smart! Great meeting you too, you can buy them here!

  6. Vyvyann says:

    Thank you for this beautiful idea? Can you share where you got the shelf? Also, I’ve had success heating up the label with a hair dryer and peeling it right off.

    1. Jenni says:

      Ohhh good tip! I soaked in hot water and used Goo Gone. I got the shelf at Hobby Lobby!

  7. Vee says:

    Do you know that Oui Yogurt has cane sugar in it????? Poison–the best friend of Cancer.
    Personally I would not buy anything with sugar or any other sweetener other than organic stevia in it. Oui would do better to not use ANY sweetener in it and let people who do not care if sugar feeds cancer use sugar in it and other people to use what they want in it or use nothing at all. Just My Humble Opinin

  8. Aylin says:

    The first thing I thought when those yogurts came out was, “ooo… I love those jars!” I had no interest in the yogurt at all. Haha!

    Great organized.Thanks for your tips

  14. Val says:

    When I finished my yogurt I thought the jars would be perfect for succulents. Thank you for the paint idea! I plan to give them as gifts for Mother’s Day.

    What a great idea! I can’t believe how perfect those jars are. I’m not usually a yoghurt fan but now I kind of want to pick up a few so I can make a little display for my desk!

    @Vyvyann. Thanks for the hair dryer idea. I find it very difficult to get the labels and glue off.
    @Vee. Good point about sugar content.
