In the June issue of HGTV Magazine Shannon Quimby showed us her creative kitchen filled with found objects, recycled materials and DIY projects that make it such a unique space.

One of our favorites was this totally doable mason-jar storage idea. “This project originated in my Grandpa Buzz’s workshop, and it always brings a smile to my face when I see his idea now in my own kitchen,” Quimby says.

The best part about these hanging mason jars is they can work throughout the house as both functional storage and interesting display. Some of Quimby’s suggestions:

  • Office organizer: Install the jars under bookshelves to store paper clips, erasers, or pens.
  • In the bathroom: Fill jars with cotton balls, Q-tips and scented soaps, and attach them under a shelf.
  • Beauty routine: Stop the aimless digging for eyeliner and lip gloss and arrange your makeup in easy to see jars under a vanity or free-standing cabinet.
  • Show off your collections: Give your keepsakes the attention they deserve and use the mason jars as an inventive display in any room.
