DIY-ify: Under Cabinet Rice and Pasta Storage

June 09, 2014

The husband and I have plans for our tiny kitchen, and it will take quite a bit of time to finish. For now we are going to do a little here, and a little there. Right now we are working on storage the storage situation since our 94-year-old home is lacking in closets and cupboard space. Our challenge: find storage on a small budget. I’ve seen this jar storage wandering Pinterest A LOT, in fact I used it for my calendar work station DIY. After looking through our overstuffed cupboard and knocking over the jar of rice, I decided it’s time for a change. I’ve installed a Pasta and Rice Jar Storage under one of our open cabinets. This project took 1 hour and cost under $10. My kind of kitchen organizer update.


– glass jars (with lids)

– screws with washers

– nail

– hammer

– drill



– Use the nail to poke a hole through the center of the jar lid.

– Measure and use a pencil to mark where you’d like the jars to hang. Drill in the screws through the holes you poked through the lids into the bottom of your cupboard.

– Fill your jars and screw onto the lids. Done!

I’m so happy with how this turned out. I definitely think I’ll be changing the jars to quart jars. We need just a bit more room for the pasta, etc. Ok, happy Thursday!
