Other Uses for a Spice Rack

I have a spice rack that I don't use. can someone please give me an idea as to what i can use the wooden cabinet for? I also still have all the spice bottles. Any ideas on what I could use the cabinet for? It has 2 drawers on the bottom and three tiers of shelves.

Thank you,
Sherry from Dixie, West Virginia

Do you craft? You could store beads, buttons, and glitter in the bottles. Or, with the empty rack, you could store fabric squares for quilting projects. How about using the rack for storing coupons, clipped notices from the newspaper, random photos, filing your bills, etc.

I have a spice rack from the 60s that my mother gave me. I sanded it down and spray painted it white and put it into my "cottage style" bedroom to hold all my little collectibles and small pictures. I just love how it turned out and I like taking something old and giving it a new use.

I use my old spice rack to store all my sewing tools. Much more organized than anything else I have used.

I use one for keeping my fragrant oil bottles in. I also have another one that I use to put my pretty little perfume bottles in - the small expensive ones that you can buy at Christmas.

I use one to line up all of my fingernail polishes. It's the perfect size for them. Also, all the bottles of different types of glues for my crafts. I also have the bottles of puffy paint, and other fabric paints, and treatments there.

Do you have a collection of pills? If you have prescription or vitamin supplement pills around, that would be a good area to store them. Since vitamin supplements come in a variety of bottle sizes, you might take the spice bottles you still have, dump out the spices you no longer use and put your vitamin supplements in them. Label them so you know which bottle is holding what vitamin and alphabetize them in your new vitamin rack!

My oldest sister years ago,collected mini bottles.(booze) She would not open them,said the seal could not be broken.I was never sure, about the seal thing.She hung them in the kitchen,it looked like that was where they belonged.She rented alittle house,with every little money.It was a cute way to put something on the walls,and show off her bottles.She said if she every had money enough to have a mini bar, she would hang them behind it.
