Empty space above refrigerator
DIY Mason Jar Project
- Lucky thirteen mason jars later, Tiny B’s got a ceiling pantry!
Simple DIY project for pantry storage off the butcher block counter.
Hanging from tiny’s kitchen ceiling which also serves as the master bedroom loft floor. This is an easy tiny house project with minimal labor and material costs.
Many tiny housers already have their own signature version of using hanging mason jars for storage. Here’s Just B Tiny’s.
-Mason Jars (various sizes)
-3 ½” x 35” x 1/8” Wood Board
Easiest project so far. Screw mason jar lids into pine ceiling with wood screws and nuts.
Wood board for jar lids
For the six jars over the refrigerator, used two sets of screws per lid and a wood board to avoid making a dozen holes in the pine wood ceiling.
So, now, dry goods like coffee, tea, pasta, rice, nuts and popcorn seeds are up off the counter, out of the way, identifiable and reachable.
Fill jar, screw into lid. Done. That easy.

History: During the design phase, tiny had a pantry shelf planned and then, 'poof' it was gone. That’s what happens when you have 220 square feet of space and priorities. So, the pantry shelf was nixed having to move the refrigerator around to accommodate an antique Asian wine cabinet. Priority was choosing a bar over a pantry, lol… but, now that's history. Hanging pantry solved losing the original pantry shelf.

Every inch of space counts when it comes to a tiny house. But, you'll be amazed at how much you can fit into 220 sq. ft. when you get creative.
