My kitchen is my sanctuary. Its messy sometimes, (ok, a lot of times) but I like to think of it as “lived in”. Someday I will be doing a complete kitchen makeover, because I can see in my mind exactly how I want it to look. For now, until time and money become available, I do little projects like this DIY Spice Rack to keep my muse smiling.
OK, now please don’t judge me…but for YEARS I have kept all of my most used spices out on my counter top next to the stove. I used to keep them in the cabinet above LIKE A NORMAL PERSON, but it always bothered me to dig through the cabinet looking for things when I was cooking. It would never fail, something I needed in a hurry would be buried in the back of the cabinet, and I’d have to pull everything out to find it…in the meantime I was burning something on the stove. One day I decided I was over it, and pulled my top spices out of the cupboard and just kept them on the counter. Tacky, right?
