I finally changed all my spices over to matching glass jars.
When I went to search my files to see when I'd first posted about this spice rack
I made from silver casserole servers, I was shocked that I'd done this project back in June.
This is how it looked back then.
I searched all over for glass spice jars and finally settled on salt and pepper shakers
I bought at Target.
I covered the holes in the top of the shakers with clear packing tape on the inside.
I just cut a square of it to go over the holes.
Much better, don't you think?
I made the labels on my computer, printed, cut them out and covered with
clear packing tape making them water proof.
This was really a simple project. I would have had it completed long ago if life hadn't
gotten in the way and if I'd found the bottles sooner.
This project started with the silver serving pieces I found at a thrift store.
A little wood made the shelf I attached in the middle.
The small molding piece is from Michael's Crafts and the small piece of wood that makes the actual shelf came from Lowe's.
They have tiny pieces of wood...who would have thought?
I used tiny tiny nails and wood glue to attach the molding to the edge of the wood plank.
Then painted all with metallic silver paint and then rubbed on a bit of black paint.
The shelves turned out looking just like the actual servers - like tarnished silver.
I attached the shelf to the server in two different ways.
The bottom shelf I was able to attach using very small screws that went through the fret work of the silver tray and into the shelf.
But the smaller tray...the fretwork was covered where I needed to attach.
So, I drilled two small holes through the shelf and wired it in place.
Both ways worked equally as good.
I love having my spices easily accessible and it's pretty too.
