Add some organization and a touch of coastal style to the bathroom with these DIY painted mason jars. Includes video tutorial!
I don’t know about you, but my bathroom counter is in a constant state of mess. With my stuff, my husband’s stuff plus all the random things the kids bring in, the counters always feel cluttered.
Painted Mason Jars to the Rescue!
I’m determined to create a calmer, prettier space to enjoy each morning. A set of pretty storage containers seemed like the right motivation to get items in order. I fell in love with these painted canisters on Etsy, but wanted to add a more beachy touch to mine.
These painted mason jars turned out so great that Sonja ended up taking them for her new bathroom! Now I get to make another set for me, and maybe a third for the beach-themed bathroom at the cottage.

How to Make Glass Jar Bathroom Containers
Start by thoroughly cleaning the inside and outside of your mason jars if they’ve been previously used.
With a soft paint brush paint one coat of chalky finish paint in three different colors on each jar respectively. Let dry completely.
In the meantime, glue the glass cabinet knob onto the top of the mason jar lid. If needed glue the disc to the rim of the lid ring. Let dry completely.
Lightly sand the painted mason jars to distress of them at any raised points or edges.
Add a 10mm jump ring to one ocean-themed charm.
Wrap a piece of twine around the neck of the painted mason jar three times and tie a knot. Add a charm and then tie a bow.
Place the lid on the jar and you’re done!
I just love how these painted mason jars turned out. I may just have to make another set for our beach-themed bathroom at the cottage.
Do you have any tips for keeping the bathroom counter tidy?
