It all started in the kitchen. I have been organizing and changing things around to make my kitchen function more to my liking. The spice rack on the counter just wasn’t doing the job. I love the spice rack that came from the gourmet food store, Dean & Deluca. However once I moved to the West Coast, getting Dean & Deluca spices wasn’t an easy or inexpensive task. I decided to just refill the metal spice tins with grocery store spices and I’ve done that for 3 years. But the tins were looking icky and the rack was taking up valuable real estate on my kitchen countertops. I decided to change the system.
I bought spices from a local spice store and a spice tray for one of my kitchen drawers. I think my spices will be happy in this drawer & I’m happy to get the counter space back. Here’s the finished product:
That left me with the old spice rack I loved. I took a chance and took it into my craft room. I put a roll of ribbon on it and it fit! I have a ton of ribbon and I’m always looking for new ribbon storage ideas. I love how I repurposed my beloved spice rack into a convenient place to store my ribbon. I think it’s going to be a good fit for my crafting since my old ribbon rack often looked shabby with the ribbon hanging down.
Hmm.. wonder what else I can repurpose?
