More Spice Rack Luv

One of my recent posts was about how I seem to be collecting these spice racks. This one was at an estate sale, in the basement with all the other unloved items. (I find a lot of stuff in basements!) What I really love about this one is it held really big spice jars (which weren't with the rack) and was half off as it was the last day of the sale.


Here's how it started out (of course I labeled everything but the spice rack...I'm such a dork):


My homemade chalk paint recipe was used with my favorite creamy color and now the rack is a beautiful creamy color, perfectly and lightly distressed, and glazed and waxed.

I wish I had the photo staging skills of other bloggerinas...whaun, whaun. Update: Due to some very nice feedback from my blogging peeps, I have just crossed that negative off! Thank you!



It's going to look so pretty in its new location in my home...which isn't ready for public viewing at the moment.

I'll update you...sometime in the hopefully near future...promise :)

  10. Isn't it amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do? The spice shelf is perfect for holding all the little bits and pieces of vintage treasures.
