Good morning Friends!
Today I am sharing the forth and final DIY I did for Sebastian’s Big Boys Room. And yip, you’ve guessed it, it’s a quick and easy once again. This time in the form of these very cool (in my opinion) DIY Car Storage Jars.
One thing when designing / creating a room for a toddler was the need for storage. A place to put all those little bits and bobs they find, collect and accumulate. I had seen this idea floating around of cute jars topped with toys (generally animals) and thought this would kill two birds with one stone (so to speak) make a neat feature in Sebastian’s room and be somewhere to store those small things.
So with this in mind, I was off to source some jars. As always I was after something which at the time I was wanting to do this DIY was near on impossible to find / source. Isn’t always the way, when your not looking for something there is it in the 5000’s and when your desperate to find it, well, zilch, zip, nada!
I was after jars that weren’t too big and weren’t too small (otherwise what was the point) and as much a plastic jars would be preferable, I knew I was being unrealistic. Now if you venture up and down the kitchen section (near us anyway) you will find jars of all shapes, sizes and patterns. But no just plain ones 🙁 not easily anyway. Eventually, success and Steve was sent on a mission to find three suitable toy car, which of course he had no trouble locating. His biggest decision was choosing which three to get.
To make your own Car Storage Jars, you will need:
- Jars of choice, quantity and size is completely up to you and what you can source (you may also choose to recycle some form the kitchen if they fit what you are after)
- Toy Cars
- Spray paint
- Screws, one per jar is fine
What do you think of these DIY Car Storage Jars? Is this something you think you would give a go?
