Repurposed Item of the Week: Spice Rack

By Eva Wallace

officeClutter Control Freak Blog has started a brand new category inspired by one of our contests (Unlikely uses for everyday items):

Repurposed Products!

Every Friday, I'll hunt down a product from the Stacks and Stacks website and give you a brand new (or at least new to me!) purpose for it.

This week - Spice Racks! Particularly, our Three Shelf Wire Spice Rack. Or maybe even the Alder Spice Rack.

One of these handy wall mounted spice racks is the perfect size for holding little plastic craft-paint bottles! (The photo is from The Knot's Message Board entry from Julia)

What would you do with a spice rack?

I just read another blog that had a great photo of a repurposed spice rack:

Kelsey is using hers for office supplies.

Wow - I like that one!

Thanks, Louise!

Great idea! I saw the one on OrgJunkie, but I love the idea of putting craft paints in a spice rack! I have a whole bunch of those little paint bottles, and I'm never sure what to do with them when they're not in use!

I know - the plastic box I have mine in doesn't quite cut it.

Spice jars are great for sorting beads. Sort by color, size, shape. Just one spice rack, or several hung close together, makes it so easy to add to (or limit) your collection. And it is easy to see what is in the jar without having to sift through shoe boxes full of plastic bags.

Great idea, Gabby!

I am using a cheap shoe rack on its side to keep my canvases neat and upright and it's expandable to fit all my canvases. When I get my art shelves put up I will bolt it to the top and they will be neat AND out of the way! This is the kind:

I want to try using this over-the-toilet shelf to store and organize my canvases. Turned upside down and remixed a little, I think it would be great for my smaller canvases and my larger ones.

From Eva Wallace, February 2 2011

Fantastic idea, Leslie! I absolutely LOVE finding new uses for things!

From Eva Wallace, February 2 2011

The over the toilet shelf is a great idea, Leslie! If you want to do something other than the glass shelves, this one would work really well:
All of the shelves are fully adjustable!

I use my old spice jars for buttons, beads, sewing needles, thimbles etc.; then I put them in my spice racks so they are easy to find when I need them. Small thread scissors fit into some jars as well. Pin cushion also fits into my spice racks.

Tatting, embroidery and yarn scraps fit into small jars that fit in the spice racks.

From Eva Wallace, May 9 2011

What a great idea, Vernetta! I'm assuming the spice rack isn't used for spices anymore - I'm envisioning buttons in my soup! ;)
