Mason Jar Soap Dispenser by MidwestFinds on Etsy
Kelly, from the last post I made a few minutes ago, has a "how" on making these soap dispensers found in this etsy shop. This seller shows several unique ways to re-use, and upcycle vintage mason jars.
I thought it would be cool to mount lids on the underside of your cabinets, and screw the jars into them for storage, like people do in their workshops.
I wouldn't recommend using vintage lids, since they would be destroyed by the srews you put through them to mount them to the cabinets. You could buy (horrors) reproduction tin lids, or you could use standard size jar lids from your kitchen. Of course you would decorate them.... Babyfood jars would also work...of course.
::kellygeorgette::: a how to for you.
This artist and blogger has a lot of good ideas for reusing, upcycling and using everyday items in unique ways to add some charm to our lives and our houses. If you don't feel like making the items yourself, you can buy them on ets.
