Posted by Head Chiquita on Wednesday, June 8, 2011, In : Recycle & Reinvent 

These are great for under the shelf storage of nails and other hardware items, beads, buttons and more. Attach the top to the bottom of the undershelf and screw the clear jars on and off as you need them. Great for garages, craft and sewing rooms, or anywhere you need see-through storage.
