New Use for a Vintage Spice Rack

Repurposing a Vintage Spice Rack by

One of my April Dumpster Diving Finds was a spice rack that I gave to my mom for her Women’s Club yard sale.  I kept thinking about that spice rack and finally asked my mom if I could have it back.  Luckily she hadn’t yet taken it to the Women’s Club yard sale storage area.

I wasn’t sure where I would use this spice rack, but I was positive that I would come up with something.

After two coats of Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue paint, the spice rack was ready for a new use.

Thanks to Mr. SP’s woodworking skills, I have two large cabinets for craft storage.  A pie safe holds some of my supplies and the back wall is covered in peg board.

The peg board made a perfect hanging spot for the spice rack.

I’m so glad that I found this in the dumpster and that Mama hadn’t donated it.

I’m now on summer vacation and am enjoying completing projects and working in my yard.  It feels good to accomplish something at home and not just at work.

  3. Fantastic idea! I have a few unused spice racks hanging about needing a job here, so they just might get one now!

    Thanks for sharing this 😉

  4. Definitely a great idea! Something like that would be perfect in my bathroom and I could put a pretty mason jar with bath beads or flowers in it along with some rolled up hand towels for guest. I’m going to keep an eye out for one. You see them all the time at Goodwill but it never dawned on me to repaint it and use it somewhere other than in a kitchen!
