Melbourne mom Ange has gone viral on TikTok with her handy hack that turns old $22 Bunnings spray paint passata jars into a snazzy stash solution

In the clip, Ange starts with the two Passata glasses that have been cleaned and the old sticker removed.

She sticks a rectangular sticker on the front, making sure it’s straight and centered.

Ange then takes the glasses outside and coats them thoroughly with the black spray paint.

She coats the lids with the rose gold spray paint and lets them all dry.

Once the jars are dry, she peels the sticker off the front, creating a small window through which to see the contents.

Ange uses the jars to organize pine nuts and walnuts and said they go perfectly with her Russel and Hobbs kettle and toaster.

Many viewers were quick to praise the “ingenious” hack.

‘You look fantastic!! Great idea!’ said a woman.

‘I’m not often impressed by things like this, but good work!’ wrote another.

Many commenters were concerned that the paint would cause an odor or not be food safe.

“No odor after the paint dries, so the pantry is fine. Didn’t spray the inside as food safe as it used to be,” Ange replied.

Others suggested coating the lenses with a primer to ensure the paint doesn’t scratch off.
