Spice up your life…

every boy and every girl. Spice up your life? No? Okay. Well, then maybe spice up your kitchen?

Pallette Spice Rack

Jeff woke up last weekend and declared he was going to make a spice rack out of the extra pallet we had leftover from the wine rack he made last spring. And make one he did!

This is where it all began.

He got to work sawing, sanding, nailing, staining, etc… You know the drill by now.

And I got to work finding spice bottles and labels to make it look all cute. You’ll be surprised to know that Jeff didn’t care so much about that step in the process. Boys.

In addition to finding the spice bottles with the black lids at Bed, Bath & Beyond (with a coupon of course!) and the ones with the white lids at The Container Store, I came across a handy and creative blog with FREE printable spice labels. Are these not the cutest?

Oh and because I had different spices then there were pre-made labels, I also sprung for the five dollar blank labels where I could type in my own text. For someone slightly neurotic like myself, this was a dream come true. It might also be somewhat sad that these are the things I get excited about nowadays.

Jeff even included a few handy hooks on the rack to hang pot holders and if ours weren’t old and crusty (TMI?) I’d have those on display too. I guess it’s just another reason to go shopping!

So there you have it, our latest DIY project. In a tiny kitchen like ours, any little storage space is a huge help!

P.S. Jeff tells me this is something anyone could recreate themselves, but if you have any questions let me know and I’ll pass them onto him. I don’t think I’m qualified to help.

  1. The spice rack looks great! We found a spic rack at the thrift store and have been looking everywhere for nice glass spice jars! Thank you for the link. Is the coupon you used available online perchance?

    • Thank you Stephanie! I actually just used both the 20% off an item and $5 of a $15 dollar purchase coupons you get in the mail, but I checked and it looks like they’re only valid on in-store purchases!
