My goal for this year is to get this house organized. I moved in here shortly before my divorce. The house Ron and I had was big and had lots of storage. When I moved, I brought way too much stuff for the space. And though I’ve gotten rid of lots of stuff, there is still way too much. I’ve been organizing as best I can, always looking for new storage ideas. This is one project I’ve been putting off and have finally finished. It’s a small thing but every thing I do makes it much easier for the next project.
The spice rack will free up some desparately needed space on shelves. It’s not where it is going to end up. Ron is going to hang it for me today. But I still wanted to show you.
I found the rack at the flea market where our booths are. I loved it the minute I laid eyes on it. But it’s been in storage since I brought it home. You can see the leaf on the bottom shelf. It cleaned up easily and took very little time to paint. I used my favorite Country White after I removed the label holders.
It is going to be the perfect size. Looks like someone else had the same idea as me. The table it’s sitting on is a project Ron is working on. You’ll see it the beginning of next week. LOL We double up on space here. There is hardly room to walk in the kitchen.
Here it is painted.
And here I’ve put the label holders back on it.
I went to Word and found a font I liked and printed some labels.
I haven’t filled the shelves yet. Just wanted you to see that there is so much room on the shelves. What doesn’t fit, will be tossed in the trash. I know there are some spices I haven’t used in a long time and have probably lost their taste by now.
