Under the Cabinet
Turn the front of your refrigerator into your spice rack. Just empty your spice containers into magnetic tins and arrange them on the fridge door for an eye-popping presentation. This in-plain-sight presentation means you’ll never again have to dig through a cabinet or drawer to hunt for the oregano.
Cooking is a science. Take that idea to the next level by organizing your seasonings in test tubes, a design that's simple in both looks and construction. Just drill holes into a strip of wood to accommodate your test tubes, and mount the strip on your kitchen wall. Then, pour your spices into the test tubes and top each with a cork.
Wire and Nail
Put a fresh twist on the traditional wall-mounted spice rack by hanging your spice bottles directly on the wall. Simply wrap floral wire around the necks of some clear spice jars, and form a loop in the back. Set nails (or even adhesive wall hooks) into the wall in your favorite configuration, and hang.
Imagine if your entire cabinet of spices could be contained in a small box. Well, it can. If you buy your spices in bags, or transfer them into bags, you can easily repurpose a photo box to file them away. The end result is easy to add to, keep alphabetized, and carry to your meal prep station.
Vintage Coke Crate
Turn a vintage Coke crate on its side and mount it to the wall for an easy DIY spice rack. The bottle compartments are just the right size for your herb and spice containers. Remember to place a label on the top of each jar so you can easily see what you need before pulling it out.
Mount these vintage silver casserole dishes to the wall for a showpiece that serves up spices. A small wooden shelf across the middle (painted silver to match) allows you to stand two rows of shakers inside. Filled with uniform bottles, they are pretty, eclectic, and functional.
