Spice rack customized for my space

Submitted by Imadeit on Wed, 07/20/2016 - 13:22

At the end of the day, my spice rack did not look anything like Ana's plan, but it did make my creative juices start.

I hung mine on my wall.  I used a premade panel as the backing which I then stained.  I boxed in the panel with a thin 1x2 along the sides so that the hanging wire would not show.  The shelves are 1x3 trimmed with the same 1x2 to provide a ledge so that the spice bottles won't fall off.

Still waiting on my labels to arrive so have not loaded up the jars yet!  Splurged on the jars from a specialty bottle company.  They are high grade impact resistant plastic that is super clear and lightweight.  The lids have a hinged top with one side having shaker holes and the other open to be able use a measuring spoon.

So proud of the finished result.  Thanks Ana!
