Sugar & Spice & Organization

Sugar & Spice & Organization

I had seen this idea on Pinterest not too long ago because I thought it was a fantastic way to organize the itty-bits in my Craft Room. Over the years, I have collected and gathered any number of small “bits”… buttons, beads, jewelry findings, bells, pom poms…you get the picture. So I had added “Spice Rack” to my never-ending list of things to hunt for in thrift stores. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.

Well…after a successful thrifting run and a couple of well-spent dollars, I had an ideal spice rack for repurposing.

Perfection!

It was just what I wanted (i.e., clear glass containers) and I have no idea if $5 was a great, good, or not-so-good deal…BUT I had it and $5 seemed like a fair price at the time.

Once I had this, I gathered up my other materials:

I wanted to give it a makeover in my style, so I spray painted the wood base in a warm silver. I love this stuff- the color is fantastic; it’s a primer and paint all-in-one; it has an ergonomic trigger; and it dries satiny smooth.

A long-time favorite of mine.

After painting, it looked so much…tonier…which is a word rarely used in reference to a spice rack.

Doesn’t that look better?

After cleaning the spice containers, I peeled off the labels and removed the shaker tops. I already have an idea for a new use for the latter…

We’ll just set these aside for now…

With chalkboard paint in hand, I painted the tops of each spice container with four coats (don’t worry, it dries fast).

Let’s get our paint on!

Painting in progress…

After they dried, I filled the containers with my itty-bits! Then I grabbed a chalk pen (so much better than regular chalk!) to label each jar.

Almost done!

And there you have it- all labeled (for now- easy to wipe off and update as necessary!) and ready for my craft room.

The big reveal…

So what do you think? Pretty easy stuff! And totally customizable. I think if I find another cast-off spice rack, I’ll make one for our garage- nails, screws, bolts, etc. Oh darn, another reason to go on a treasure hunt…

Craft on!
