Our cabinets and counterspace were cluttered with spices. It was driving me nuts. Therefore, I decided to create my own magnetic spice rack!
Bed Bath and Beyond sells these magnetic tins, which are airtight and have two spouts to sift spices. I bought a bunch of them to remedy our little spice dilemma.
I emptied the contents of each spice directly into its own tin. Then, I wrote the spice’s name directly on the lid with a black Sharpie.
I planned to hang this magnetic spice rack on a wall, so I purchased a piece of metal flashing from the air conditioning and duct work aisle at Lowe’s.
Using a power drill and a metal drill bit, I created pilot holes into each corner of the metal flashing. Then, I hung the flashing on one kitchen wall using regular nails.
The flashing was a little dusty and scuffed, so I scrubbed it thoroughly once it was on the wall.
Once done, I arranged the tins in alphabetical order on the flashing. Spice problem: Solved!
I absolutely adore these tins. They’re simultaneously functional and pretty. This spice rack was the perfect solution for our kitchen.
Easy enough, right?
