Silver Spice Rack

Finally
I finally changed all my spices over to matching glass jars.
When I went to search my files to see when I'd first posted about this spice rack
I made from silver casserole servers, I was shocked that I'd done this project back in June.
This is how it looked back then.
I searched all over for glass spice jars and finally settled on salt and pepper shakers 
I bought at Target.
I covered the holes in the top of the shakers with clear packing tape on the inside.
I just cut a square of it to go over the holes.
Much better, don't you think?
I made the labels on my computer, printed, cut them out and covered with 
clear packing tape making them water proof.
This was really a simple project. I would have had it completed long ago if life hadn't 
gotten in the way and if I'd found the bottles sooner.

This project started with the silver serving pieces I found at a thrift store.
A little wood made the shelf I attached in the middle.
The small molding piece is from Michael's Crafts and the small piece of wood that makes the actual shelf came from Lowe's. 
They have tiny pieces of wood...who would have thought?
I used tiny tiny nails and wood glue to attach the molding to the edge of the wood plank.
Then painted all with metallic silver paint and then rubbed on a bit of black paint.
The shelves turned out looking just like the actual servers - like tarnished silver.
I attached the shelf to the server in two different ways.
The bottom shelf I was able to attach using very small screws that went through the fret work of the silver tray and into the shelf.
But the smaller tray...the fretwork was covered where I needed to attach.
So, I drilled two small holes through the shelf and wired it in place.
Both ways worked equally as good.
I love having my spices easily accessible and it's pretty too.

What a clever idea! I see that type of silver serving piece all the time at the thrift stores. Would never have thought of doing this. They look great.

sharon said...

Nita,
This looks so wonderful! And its a clever idea to up-cycle those casserole caddies. Don't you love how small details can make such a big change.

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

This is a great idea Nita! I love the way it looks on the wall!~Hugs, Patti

PAINTORDIG.blogspot.com said...

This is such a clever idea. I love the salt shakers you used.

Amy Chalmers said...

What a hug difference this makes in your kitchen~~!! Brilliant is right Nita! I love the jars, they look simple and vintage and so do the labels. You have to send this idea to Country Living magazine!

Bonnie@ The Hopeless Romantic said...

Great idea Nita, sorry i missed the origional post back in june....I love this idea. I found 2 of these and stashed them not sure what to do with em........i was thinking of tryin to make some picture frames???....Great job, thanks for sharing!...........Bonnie

Teresa said...

I've always loved your spice rack....looks fabulous

Ricki Treleaven said...

*WOW*, Nita, how pretty! I love this project. It is so fancy, yet useful at the same time! I think it is smart to have your spices close because you are much more likely to use them in your cooking.

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

These are just awesome! You're going to start a trend! I agree with Amy. This belongs in a magazine! Beautiful.

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

This looks SO good! What a fun, beautiful kitchen accessory.

Cindi Myers said...

I love it. So classic and elegant!
Cool labels!
Do you really use all those spices?
Wow! I'm so lame, I only have MAYBE 5. Now I want MORE!
Not to cook with of course, just for pretend and because they are so pretty.

French-Kissed said...

I remember liking this project when you first posted it, but now with the matching bottles and labels you have hit this one out of the ball park...your fine tuning really paid off! Might be cute to do it for a collection of nail polishes, too. Have a wonderful weekend Nita!

Hello Nita! You've done a lovely job with your spice rack - it's beautiful! I've linked it to my spice racks post too today, well done!

Shannon Fox said...

Nita, I missed this post somehow? but thanks to Inspire Me Heather, I came by for a peek. This is so cute and the way you "silvered" the trim is brilliant ;) Hope you and the pups are all well!

Tracey Ayton Photography said...

Found ya via Inspire Me Heather. What a fabulous idea. Way too adorable. I am going on a search for those footed trays. Lovely blog.

-Lisa said...

I love this! I haven't looked through all the comments so someone else may have already said this but I think it would look great in a bathroom with perfumes on it!
Thanks for sharing and for such great vision!

Debbiedoos said...

This is one of my favs Nita for the Whisperwood Cottages feature. Best of luck to you. One of my facebook friends asked me if I knew how you did the shelves...I will direct them to your post.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Just saw you made the top 10 at WhisperWood Cottage. Way to go! They couldn't have picked a more deserving or talented blogger. If I were judging you would be the winner for sure. :o)

Lessandra said...

What a clever idea! They're very pretty - especially with the new bottles.

Moy said...

Love this!!! I wanted glass spice jars but couldnt afford them as I have lots of spices. The S&P idea is GREAT...I pinned this so share w/all.

Unknown said...

Just saw this on pinterest and so clever and beautiful use of those casserole servers. I've collected 2 in hopes of putting a solid bottom in them and using as letter trays on my desk, and now think I will repurpose them from what I originally was going to re purpose them, and use as spice shelves..terrific and creative idea. I searched all through the info posted, comments, and may have missed where and what brand of spice bottles you ended up using ?
Just love what you did !

WizzKnits said...

This is so amazing! I love it!!! I see these a lot at thrift stores and always wonder what they could be used for...thanks for the idea!
