Thinking about adding some organization to your life in 2015? Well, a spice rack from the thrift store is a GREAT piece to add to your garage, craft room, or any room where you need to organize "small bits" like hardware or craft supplies.

While not mandatory, I'm a fan of spray painting wood items from thrift stores. Not only does it make it contemporary, but it feels like I'm "sealing out" the previous life...whatever that was.

Since most spice jars have labels and shaker tops, remove those.

Then, using chalkboard paint from the craft store, paint the tops of your spice jars.

Then the fun step- fill your spice jars with small bits- nuts & bolts, beads, jingle bells, washers, pom poms, whatever small bits you have floating around and want to keep together in one place. Then, using chalk or a chalk pen, label your jar on the lid! Terribly cute and wonderfully functional- the perfect organizer!

    I love that idea I have the stand where could I find the bottles

      I bet you can find some on Amazon...or maybe Ebay? Just make sure you measure the holes in your stand before you order- that way, you can make sure the diameter of the bottle is just slightly smaller!

    I never would have thought to use a spice holder for items used in craft making. This definitely is a clever way of keeping things at finger tip reach. Great for glitter, pins/needles, pom poms, and embellishments for card making. Love your idea.
