The jars are from The Container Store. I spray painted the lids white--they come silver. Labels also from CS.

Thanks for the prompt reply/manufacturer info Samantha. Very eager to order a sample. Also focused towards grays, whites and natural woods on current project. Think this tile would be perfect.

Samantha Schoech added this to 8 Incredibly Clever Organizing Tricks
Take advantage of open shelving by harmonizing mismatched jars with matching labels. If you really want to get elegant, spray paint the lids all the same color. Reuse is the best form of recycling, after all.
7. Sort the pantry. Set the stage for healthy dinners by creating a neat and orderly pantry with healthful choices front and center. Toss expired foods and consolidate packages that have just a little left. If you like, pick up a flat of canning jars and a packet of labels to create your own organizing system for bulk-bin goods.Get It Done: How to Clean Out the Pantry
These are custom shelves that I had our contractor build. My inspiration was this photo from Houzz. I wanted a little flourish in an otherwise modern and clean-lined room.
AFTER: I still have open shelves, but now they are for cookbooks and dry goods. Our dishes and glassware are all in cupboards, where they stay nice and clean.
Label what you've got. No matter where you keep the jars, make sure you know what's inside each and when its contents expire. Labels on the front offer easy-to-read information; they can be purchased at office supply or craft stores. You can write them by hand or print them out from your computer on white or colored stickers. If you don't want to be stuck with labels, tie cardboard labels to the neck of each jar with matching ribbon or butcher twine.Jars come in a variety of styles, finishes, sizes and shapes to create just the look you're seeking.Using jars in other ways? Please share your idea below!
