And now I have a pretty and stylish storage and organization solution for my bathroom! (Mason Jar Bathroom Storage & Accessories)

Tags

I’ve seen these painted and distressed mason jar bathroom storage and accessories sets on Etsy for the past year or so and have to admit I’ve been intrigued. My first concern has been durability. Especially if you’re using craft paint. It’s water soluble. And even with a top clear coat, I worried that they finish would eventually wash off. Or peel off. Which has made me reluctant to try my hand at creating this mason jar bathroom storage set. You’ll admit the finish isn’t permanent. But it’s much more durable than craft paint. Especially after you give it a clear sealant coat.

 

1. Give your jars two coats of Amy Howard One Step Paint in your choice of color; let dry completely between coats.


2. After the second coat dries overnight, distress the raised lettering on the mason jar. I use 80 grit sandpaper.

3. Finish it with two coats of a matte finish sealant. This is my go to product that I found at the online shop.

For the toothbrush holder, I used a mason jar lid insert that is meant for a flower arrangement.
For the soap dispenser, I purchased the lid converter kit from an online shop. And that’s it. The smallest jar is a 4 oz. quilted jelly jar. The cotton balls are in one of Ball’s Elite Collection jars (1/2 pint).
Happy Pinning :)
