DIY Painted Mason Jars Bathroom Containers

Add some organization and a touch of coastal style to the bathroom with these DIY painted mason jars. Includes video tutorial!

Three painted mason jars in various shades of blue sitting on a white bathroom counter. The jars are distressed and embellished with coastal style charms and a glass knob.

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.

Do u seal jars after painting

Hi Lisa! We didn't seal these jars and they're holding up just fine. If you are worried that it's not durable enough, be sure to buy Chalky Finish paint for glass which you can then bake in the oven to help the paint set. Hope that helps! Jane
