Three Cool DIY Spice Rack Ideas
It's six o'clock in the evening. Do you know where your spice jars are? These three bloggers certainly do, because they've invented and built cost-and-space-efficient spice storage solutions. Their solutions use wall and pantry space to the fullest. Are you ready to make the most of your kitchen? Let's go!
Built-in spice rack: KariAnne from the blog Thistlewood Farms created spice storage from an overlooked, unused space in her kitchen. With the help of her husband (a pretty good carpenter) and only $25 worth of materials, she built a clever spice rack onto the side of a cabinet. KariAnne took advantage of the space by installing boards and decorative molding to form a ladder of shallow shelves the width of her cabinet's end. The shelves are the perfect depth to store spice jars or decorative plates. Although KariAnne's hubby helped out, the woodwork in this project is basic enough for an intermediate DIY-er to do.
Pantry door spice rack: Without even the assistance of her local handyman, uber-talented DIY blogger Whitney from Shanty2Chic constructed a huge, sturdy spice rack inside her pantry door. She built herself a whopping six mini-shelves for spice jars of all sizes, including a cute top shelf for mini-jars. The best part of her project is her step-by-step instructions. Well documented with pictures, her steps to are simple to follow, so you can replicate the project in your own house.
Wall-mounted wire grid: Jessica Hill of the blog Mad in Crafts shared a paint bottle storage solution that called out to me, "Spice rack!" She used wire shelving squares and a clever arrangement of PVC pipe, and the result was mod-looking storage grids. By carefully mounting the shelving to the wall, she ensured that the petite shelves could hold the weight of many, many bottles of craft paint. Grids like the ones that Jessica made could be mounted to a wall, on the end of a cabinet, or on the inside of a cupboard or pantry door.
