Raise your hand if you have tools indoors and tools outdoors and tools everywhere else in between. If you use them everywhere, they scatter!

For that reason, this little table top turned tool station in my photo studio got a slight revamp.

You may remember this when the vintage creamers held screws. They were cool! But dust got inside, and it was hard to tell what sized screws were inside.

While browsing in a local store yesterday, I came across these squishy mason jars.

Don’t they look like someone sat on them?

About a week ago, I stocked up on all my fav screw sizes, so they needed new homes. And these jars proved to be perfect!

I really liked the fact that the shallow, wide mouthed jars allowed for an easy grab, rather than a dump to find what you’re after.

Plus… they come with dust covers!

The rims were all screwed onto the jars first, then the covers were placed loose on top.

I found some on Amazon below, along with a few other cool things! (affiliate links)

The table top (that shelf unit is a top of a small table) got slightly revamped with the addition of a white board along the bottom shelf. 

The white helps illuminate the screws much more effectively!

So much so, I laid out a loose screw beside each jar so I could easily remember what went where.

p.s. I do have the proper sized screw measurements listed on the other side of the jars, but they mess me up. I like XS S M L XL better! 1 5/8 means NOTHING to me! 

Please don’t even ask…

I just love how shallow these jars are, for quick grabs! You don’t need millions of screws to fill the jar up.

And if you take the jar with you, they aren’t that bulky.

Another fun addition was drilling holes into a shelf, to slip in the most commonly used drill bits. No more hunting!

All the twine found a home here too, as did the sanding sponges. A hole was drilled through them, then hung up.

This mini wall mounted drill and screws tool station with squishy jars is armed and ready for action!

And now I want one upstairs too.

Guess I’d better sit on a few more jars…

Do you have a small spot for indoor tools?

  1. I recently made something similar to this and it’s been a lifesaver. I recycled salsa jars and then screwed them to the bottom shelf to expand usage space. I like these little jars you found looks like it would be easy to grab hardware. Plan to build more of these after we move because they’re so functional.

  2. Right now I have tools stored in a deep dark closet. Screwdrivers, wrenches, and other stuff is in an old drink cooler and the drill, hammers, and pry bar, etc. are in a basket. I might use something like this in my shed but I need to clean it out first.

  3. Love this idea! Especially the jars. The klutz in me would need a rail to keep the drills from toppling over. 😉

  4. I love that 1 5/8 means nothing to you! I usually say 3 lines after the half way point, etc. Lol! It’s amazing I get anything done really 😉 The drill bit storage for the most used is awesome as we’re always searching for what we need. Great organization and storage ideas!
