Jubug Jar Rack

jar rack  These jars are such a great space saver. I’ve got all my bulk pantry put into a small overhang separating the kitchen and living room. Such an amazing space saver. We looked at building a shelf to place the jars into, but the overhang wasn’t big enough.  Thus, this invention was born.  These are all 1/2 gallon jars filled with things such as popcorn seeds, dried lemons, oats, lavender, chili peppers, chickpeas, dried milk, pinto beans, pink beans, etc, etc, etc.jar rack

The jars rea quite sturdy.  We’ve had it up there for three years and have never dropped a jar or had one fall.  I’ve had a couple close calls but nothing to worry me about them dropping down.  The first year they were up, it made me nervous to stand underneath them but over the test of time, it continually surprises me how sturdy they are.

The ends of the shelf are structured as such.  It’s not beautiful in a “hand craft” kind of way.  But once you fill those jars up… beauty is in the eye of the owner-of-a-small-kitchen!ring and screws

We used two 1/2″ screws to screw in the lid cap.  And to keep the ring from turning, we superglued the lids to the rings.  They help up their end of the bargain!under shot

It is really tripy to sit under a jar of chick peas… so stay here a few moments and get comfortable… once you can handle that, you’re half way there to building one for yourself.

There really is no place like here.  No one like us is doing things like us.  Maybe people who are not like us are doing things like us but that still means that we're unique.  At least with my husband around, we're unique.  He thinks up these crazy fix-it's and not because we're too cheap to buy the real thing, (well we are too cheap to buy the real thing, but that's not the point) but

Take this normal fruit basket for your everyday kitchen needs.  It was too long, so I took the bottom piece off.  But in order to attach it the the ceiling, my man needed just the right kind of object.

And this is the object he found.  LOVE it?  LOVE it!

Take all my necklaces and accessories, when you don't have room for fancy hands or hooks but you've got a window space.  TaDa!  Took an old towel rod and hung it across.  Also, the frame is and old chalkboard frame I found at a garage sale. Put some lace in the space.  It now hold all my earrings.  TaDa!

We don't have a lot of space in our tiny house, so anything we can do to keep those precious, tiny, parts of life up and out of the way of my other precious tiny lives is a grand thing.
