The basket just wasn’t cutting it anymore. Spices ended up stacked on top of each other, and things like extracts and food colorings had no chance of fitting in.
As I’ve mentioned before, space is at a premium in our kitchen. I didn’t want to devote any counter space to a big spice rack. It just wasn’t going to happen. So we got a little creative.
We found this random corner cabinet at Significant Elements, an “architectural reuse” store a few blocks away from us. Now, the awkward corner in our kitchen that only held my aprons holds our spice cabinet as well!
Savory spices on the top shelf.
Baking spices on the second.
Cacao nibs and extra spices that I need to get jars for on the third.
And extracts, food colorings, and vanilla bean paste on the bottom.
My kitchen feels so much more organized now!
