Here's what you'll need to do:
- Save your empty sauce jars, clean them out and wash off the labels (If you find the jars have an odor, pour a little bit of vinegar in the jar, close the lid and let sit for several hours. Wash again and the odor will be completely gone.)
- Sand down the lids to remove the words and pictures with fine grit sandpaper
- Drill a small hole in the lid
- Screw in a knob
- Fill up your jar!
The tops will end up looking like antique metal:
I had the clear knob on hand from Audrey's nursery furniture makeover. I found the blue one at Michael's for two dollars.
Here they are on my kitchen counter!
Here's a few more things you could store in them:
- Q-tips and cotton balls
- Extra buttons
- Bath salts
- Spare change
- Small candies or snacks
- Craft beads
- Hair clips and accessories
- Paper clips
The possibilities are endless!
I hope this inspires you to add some beautiful storage to your home! Do you think you'll try this project? Let me know in the comments!
