Since the old, somewhat rusty pantry door spice rack had to come down to paint the door, I decided to replace it with wood spice racks. I am glad that I splurged and bought the new ones! The stained wood looks great against the white door. Post contains affiliate links.
Simple Pantry Door Mounted Spice Rack:
I purchased seven IKEA spice racks so I could make use of the entire door. I am happy for any excuse to make a trip to IKEA! If there is a store near you, you can pick them up for only four dollars each!
I stained the pieces before assembling. I used Minwax Jacobean stain to match the rolling crates and countertop.
Next, I measured the spacing and mounted them with a level and my trusty impact driver. (An impact driver saved my DIY career. It drives the screws perfectly without a ton of pressure. To be honest, I used to strip screws and ruin bits left and right with a regular drill!)
Installing the racks was a bit of a challenge. They had be mounted right in the beveled part of the door, so the screws had to stick out of the door just the right amount.
I love seeing the spices lined up neatly on the shelves, especially my old chalkboard paint baby food jars! Years ago, I begged for jars from everyone I knew with babies until I had enough to make a set.
These retro vintage reproduction salt and pepper shakers are so nifty. I was given them as a gift, and now they have a spot of honor on the door.
The pantry prettification is complete. I think I’ll have to stop and admire every time I open the pantry for at least a couple weeks. It really is the little things!
