Spice Drawer Overhaul

• 26 January 2009















I think everyone has a few spots in the house that really suffer...my home is no exception. Perhaps the #1 junk spot in my home {was} my spice drawer. Once, some guests over for dinner even let out a gasp when I opened the drawer while finishing up something last minute for dinner. It was that bad :) I smiled when I heard this because I recognized how almost-comical it was to have a drawer that messy. To date, I've never seen anyone else's spice drawer as disorganized as mine was. Truly. In fact, I was going to show you a picture of the "before", but decided against sharing it because I really only like to show pretty pictures on my blog and folks...this was not pretty. If you want a visual, simply imagine a drawer with various shaped bottles thrown in it every which way with no rhyme or reason...catch my drift? Oh, and I had to shove bottles all over each other just to get the drawer to close...

For the makeover: I used the small circle labels from Stuck, and bought the racks and jars at the Container Store. I can't tell you how great it is to open this once-problematic place in my home.

Maybe we'll have that couple over again and leave our spice drawer open for a look-see :)

Steph...that is a BEAUTIFUL drawer. You are inspiring me! Mine is a disaster and just tonight as I was cooking dinner I thought to myself something needs to be done about this!

Is the a good option for a cupboard? I don't have any drawer space to spare. :) But my spice cupboard is like that!

ok, that is very inspiring. gorgeous! and i am dying to know what krazy salt is. . .

Cari, it's a "mixed up" salt that I've heard a few locals rave about. I bought some and am going to try it out. Although, I tend to just use sea salt most of the time...there is something so pure about it!

Wow- that is beautiful! My spices are fairly organized, but they are on a high shelf, so I can't even see what is what unless I stand on a stool or pull them all down. I might need to re-adjust? I finally fixed my computer so I can now read your blog (it used to freeze my screen on your site?). No more though and I'm THRILLED!

Love this! I need to have an intervention with my spice cupboard as well. It's getting pretty bad.
