One of the biggest issues in making any home both functional and attractive is storage. How do you keep knickknacks and doodads immediately accessible yet pleasing to look at? I find the bathroom is one area where this is particularly difficult to manage.

In search of a solution, I started scouring the Internet and found an image of mason jars hung on a plywood board on the wall. The jars are the perfect size for Q-tips and cotton balls and it's the best kind of bathroom storage--up off the counter. The only problem? It was just a solitary image, without a tutorial attached. Still, I was fairly confident I could figure something out so, after a trip to my local hardware store, I sat down to put something together. After some trial and error, I ended up with a functional and appealing storage installation. Mission accomplished.
