Mason Jar Sunday {DIY Mason Storage from Liz Marie!}

Today's Mason Jar Sunday comes in the form of a DIY guest post from one of my favorite fellow bloggers, Liz Marie!  If you haven't yet met her in this wonderful blogging world, go say hello!  All photos in this post are credited to Liz.


I'll let Liz take it away...

One of my favorite elements for interior design costs less than two dollars at your local grocery store. That's right, Mason Jars. Now, you can find some antique mason jars that cost more & some in different styles, but for this DIY project I used four simple wide mouth Mason Jars. I decided to make my first one for my first time for our master bathroom because I hate the disorganization of bags of cotton balls and other odds and ends. I was so excited that I combined my love for mason jars & stylish practicality...

Mason Jar Storage for the baño...


Amazing storage, & it's with my favorite thing ever, MASON JARS!


I filled my mason jars with Qtips, cotton balls, & cosmetic sponges, but you could fill yours with virtually anything that fits in a Mason Jar for any room.

What you will need to create your mason jar storage...

I painted my board to match my bathroom with this lovely shade of purple.



Mason Jars, picture frame hangers, & some large pipe clamps


O, & you might need one of these.. a hubby! haha He was such a big help figuring out the placement of the jars for me.. Have I ever mentioned how amazing my husband is? Love him more than anything in the world..


And now for some Mason Jar love to show off the final product!




Isn't she crafty??  I love this.  Thank you for contacting me, Liz!!

If you have a favorite mason jar idea or an image, send it along, I'd love to share!  {and Kamie, yours is going up next week :)}

  10. Cute! I have mason jars all over my house--lined up in the windowsill with fresh flowers, in my office full of sorted craft supplies, on the coffee table with mini pinecones and wine corks....I probably have more than 20!
