Spice Rack Wanted / Plans

This cupboard is a mess I want to take care of it. Hard to find the spice I want when I need it. Bottles fall out when the turntables are turned. I could put my tupperware in this cupboard & be able to reach it without the step ladder.

New spice bottles will not all fit on this shelf I had made years ago.

I purchased sixteen glass spice bottles filled with spice. It was cheaper than purchasing the plastic bottles filled. More spice can be purchased from the company in packages to refill the bottles.

Remember I am not a professional so keep that in mind. What I want in a spice rack is along these lines. Centered at the top I want it to have the round shape with a hole in the center to screw it to my wall like my match holder. Just the backing piece behind the spice bottles I want to be bead board. The lolly pop top of plain wood. The back including the bead board & lolly pop top can not be very thick. A thin back will allow me to still open the cupboard off to the side of the wall where I want to hang the spice rack. So I have sketched a plan showing what I want. Painted in black to match my other pieces I have. The rolling pin bowl keep the bowl rack & the wood sconces that Carol made for me. They are all beautiful pieces & made with the best quality. You can click on the link in my side bar to visit Firecracker Kid Primitives. I fell in love at first sight when I saw the rolling pin spoon spice rack that Carol did for a customer. It is pictured in my side bar to. I do not have quite that much space but still just love it.

Blessings Til Next Time!


  1. Lara~
    love the idea~ it's going to be prim perfect~ looking forward to it finished up~

  2. Arggghhh...I have that same awkward spice cupboard issue - it's a cupboard on top of the stove that I can't reach all the way in without standing on a chair and it's a mess. Add to it the wiring for an range exhaust that was never installed (yeah - my "homeowner" sounds like yours in some ways), it's chaos. I love your idea and can't wait to see what you come up with - unfortunately, I don't have any wall space either!! Besides, right now there are BUNCHES of things that are bugging me even more. You go girl! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  3. We are doing things similar to you - my husband is custom building a spice rack for our cabin this coming year. Spice organization and accessibility to each on of them is such a huge issue in our family --- very short people to very tall people --- so we have to put in a rack that will make everyone smile! And I also like the picture you have of the rack that incorporates the rolling pin. So nice!


  4. Hey, that's my cupboard!!! Good luck to you in your spice rack endeavor. I bet it's going to look great. -Steph-
