DIY Space Saver Spice Rack

What better way to de-clutter your cupboard then to install a spice rack on the back of the cupboard door.

I should have thought of this earlier! All these years fighting to fit my collection of spices of varying sizes on several shelves in my cupboard was a complete pain, even with the store bought organizers. I would knock over every container in the way to get anything on the shelf.

Below I have the written instruction on how to make the Space Saver Spice Rack, but you can also watch how to make it on youtube.

Don’t you HATE when you open the cupboard to get something and stuff falls out!!

A Space Saving Spice Rack that is mounted on the back of the cupboard door will help. Let me show you how to make one.

First cut a piece of metal or have the piece cut to20170710_222618 fit the inside of your cupboard door.


Ensure the metal is light and a magnet is able to stick to it.



Paint the metal with paint that adheres to metal in the colour of your choice








Once the paint has dried, cut pieces of double side foam tape and place on the back of the metal






Remove the backing of the double sided foam tape





Mount metal in place and press firmly to adhere to cupboard door




spice container



Purchase magnetic spice canisters and fill with spices




labelPlace spice name label on the lid on the spice canister




Place spice canisters on new metal spice rack and you are done!!
