Tip: Custom Spice Rack

Custom Spice Rack My entire kitchen is blue and white. I really wanted a spice rack, but white is hard to find. I ordered a brown paper towel, saran wrap, foil dispenser from Lillian Vernon and had my husband paint it white. Then I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and bought empty glass spice jars, made labels off the computer, and am happy with my white spice rack.

Pallet Door Spice Rack

Pallet Door Spice Rack

A whole new spice rack from wooden pallets.

Approximate Time: about 2 weeks

Yield: 1

Supplies:

  • 3 pallets ($free)
  • 45 each screws ($6.00)
  • 1 bottle wood glue ($5.00)
  • 1 bottle wood stain ($6.00)

Steps:

  1. Take apart and remove nails from pallets. Let them dry for a few days, if needed. Wet wood will not sand or cut well!

  2. Measure your door length, width, and depth. I used 78x19x4.5 inches. Make sure to make room for door handle and make sure it is at least 4 inches from where the door shuts (not hinge side), so it can close.
  3. We used a planer to make all the boards the same thickness. They were run through 4 times (18 mm, 16 mil, 13, and 10), as well as the 1.5 inch boards at a half inch thick so the bottles don't fall out.
  4. All were sanded with 60 grit, 150 grit and finally 220 grit. Smooth as a baby's butt! lol Finish with 3 coats of a good poly-stain or your choice. Pallets are a dry wood.

  5. We used our drill for the pocket holes (great invention), 1.25 inch #8 screws (45 pieces), wood glue, as well as a brad nail gun (1 inch brads 18 gauge).

  6. And last but not least, 2 2.5 carriage bolts with 1 washer and locking nut (through the door) to hang on the top of our hollow door, and 2 screws at the bottom for stability

Tip: Homemade Spice Cabinet

Homemade Spice CabinetI needed somewhere to keep my spices, they took up too much space in my cabinet. My husband used some wood we had and built a frame. He then added shelves and a door. Now I have a spice cabinet. I really like this and it's so convenient. No more hunting spices, they are all in one place.
