Etched Glass Kitchen Storage Jars

I found the coolest idea over at Martha Stewart. The following instructions are from her site. All of my glass jars are written on with Sharpie on the rear or the bottom, but this idea of Martha's would be soooooooooooooooo much better.

Martha Stewart Living

Keep pantry staples organized with a set of glass storage jars customized with etched lettering.

1. Clean and dry the glass. Using painter's tape, mark off the area you want to etch. Attach vinyl stick-on letters and decorative tape; press hard to ensure they are attached firmly.

2. Cover work surfaces (be sure to work in a well-ventilated area). Put on protective gloves and an old shirt with long sleeves. Paint an even layer of etching cream onto glass. Let stand for amount of time indicated by manufacturer's instructions.

3. Rinse with warm water in a stainless steel sink. (Avoid porcelain sinks; the cream damages glazed surfaces.) Remove letters and tape.

Ditto what Barbara said. I saw it on her show and wanted to do it for my kitchen. Martha made it look easy. My staples are already in glass jar. It's the best!
