This ugly little spice rack was at an estate sale for $5. I passed it up at that price...until these magic words were uttered within my range of hearing...'Everything's half off'. I snatched that little baby up without a second thought!
It has 6 jars of spices, but I couldn't wait to take off the greasy labels. YUK!
The labels came off, as did the grease on the jars in the dishwasher. After spray painting the rack heirloom white, I didn't mind the little bit of yellow that was left on the jars. I even sanded the rack back a bit to let a little yellow show through.
After a little waxing, my little spice rack still has that primitive look, but in a much cleaner, shinier, and less yellow, way.
Next come labels, and we all love labels, don't we? Since this wasn't destined to be a spice rack anymore, my labels would help me declutter my junk stash.
This is now the perfect place to organize all my little pieces of junk that aren't part of a project...yet.
