My kitchen has slowly been turning into a DISASTER! Cupboards overflowing, and crowded counter space. This idea came to me this morning as I was gazing at my collection of blue mason jars above my counters and the mess underneath. Why not corral some of that mess in those pretty jars and get the junk off of my counter tops!? I could think of so many other places in my house I could use these too! Office, craft room, laundry room…. so sounds like I better start hunting for more jars
Materials: Jars with Lids, power screw gun, metal drill bit, 3/4″ screws (must be shorter than wood you’re drill to), tape measure, and cupboard or shelf to affix to bottom.
If you want the blue mason jars Etsy is a great place to find them.
Just make sure your lids fit snuggly.
Wash and dry.
Another tip: if you’re not handy (YET!) with the power tools and you’re trying to convince the DH or other to help you.. It helps to pull everything out.. look real clueless and ask him, “is this how it’s done?” He’ll probably JUMP to your rescue
Measure and mark on your cupboard where you will be drilling the covers to.
Remember that for some things.. oils etc.. it is best not to keep these near heat.
I didn’t worry about it too much though as it is still an improvement over my last system!
