Spice Rack Idea for Craft Storage / Craft Organizer

Spice Rack Idea for Craft Storage / Craft Organizer

Over the years, I have collected and gathered any number of small craft supplies – buttons, beads, jewelry findings, bells, pom poms…you get the picture. I needed a craft organizer that could safely hold those small “bits” and it seemed like this was a perfect spice rack idea. I see them at thrift stores all the time and it would be wonderfully upcycled into some much needed craft storage.

Well…after a successful thrifting run and a couple of well-spent dollars, I had an ideal spice rack for repurposing. It wasn’t anything special, but it hit all the points. It rotated cleanly, it came with a full set of glass spice jars, and the jars had screw on tops.

This will do nicely!

It was just what I wanted and the price was right. Now, all I needed to do was give it a refreshed makeover and then it would be the craft organizer I so desperately needed! This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.

Upcycling a Spice Rack into Craft Storage / Craft Organizer

My spice rack idea wasn’t going to take much effort, but these are the craft supplies I used:

I wanted to give my spice rack idea 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.

This will do nicely…

After painting, it looked so much…tonier…which is a word rarely used in reference to a spice rack. But it looked clean and fresh, which is exactly what I want in a craft organizer.

Yes- much better.

Now it was time to focus on the glass spice jars, which would hold all sorts of my small bits and craft supplies.

Let’s do this!

After cleaning the glass spice jars, I peeled off the labels and removed the shaker tops. And as silly as it sounds, I actually saved these shaker tops for a movie-related project!

Do they look like film reels to you, too?

With chalkboard paint or blackboard paint in hand, I painted the tops of my spice jars. These would become chalkboard labels to help organize all the little bits!

Let’s get our paint on!

After they dried, I filled the glass spice jars with my tiniest craft supplies! Then I grabbed a chalk pen (so much better than regular chalk!) to create orderly chalkboard labels. The perfect finishing touch for my spice rack idea.

Almost done!

And there you have it- a spice rack idea for craft storage that truly worked out! And I love having chalkboard labels on the glass spice jars in my craft organizer, too. That’ll make it so easy to re-label any time I change out the contents!

The big reveal…

It really is the perfect addition to my craft room organizing needs! Craft room organization (or sewing room organization, I suppose) is a constant struggle for any crafter or maker.

Love it!

I think if I find another cast-off spice rack, I’ll make one for some garage organization. Those little glass spice jars would be ideal for organizing hardware — nails, screws, bolts, etc. Oh darn, another reason to go on a treasure hunt…

      It’s perfect for jewelry findings- not only can those little tiny bits really add up, but they will spill and get away from you in a hot second! Thanks so much, Linda!

    the spice racks also can hold Keurig cups.

      I suppose that’s true! We’ll never have a Keurig because of the non-recyclable wasteful cups, but I know people have used these spice racks for that purpose. Happy 2018, Edith!
