Vintage Spice Rack’s New Life as a Collectible Display

Today, I’m showing you a vintage spice rack’s new life as a collectible display so it must be time for the February C’mon Get Crafty Blog Hop.   Join me as I get together with other talented bloggers to show you a craft created from our stash of supplies.

Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Check out some awesome creations you might be able to make from your own stash! #CraftRoomDestashChallenge
If you’d like to join in the Craft Room De-Stash Challenge, you can request to join our Facebook group here!

So let’s get started.

This wooden spice rack was sitting on the shelf at Goodwill just waiting for a new life.

First, I am going to clean it up before painting.  It is a bit dusty and dirty from being stored in the garage for a few months.

I had this jar of Alabaster Waverly Chalk paint in my paint stash.  It was for a project planned a while ago but never completed.

The paint went on quite well and only took one coat of paint.

A bit of sanding finish this sweet little collectible display.


You know I recently started a salt and pepper shaker set collection.  It was all quite by accident.  My daughter started collecting salt and pepper sets a while back and I pick them up for her when I am out thrifting,  Then I found a few vintage ones and my collection was born.

They fit perfectly on my collectible display rack.  The rack can sit on a table top or hang on the wall making it quite versatile.  This particular de-stash not only used some of my craft stash but also my stash of  thrift store finds.

  4. Sharon, it’s perfect for all those cute S & P’s you’ve found recently! The white paint is a big improvement over the wood & makes those S&P’s pop now. Great job!

  5. This is the perfect solution to display the salt and pepper shakers. It looks so pretty with the new paint and showing off the shakers.

  6. What a good use for that spice rack! Those S&P shakers look darling on there now that it has had a facelift.

  7. I see spice racks at the thrift store all of the time. Next time I’ll be grabbing one. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. What a difference paint makes. This is such a pretty display shelf!

  9. That looks so great!!!!!

  10. That is so cute; for years I have used spice racks for acrylic paints; now I have one of those nifty spinner racks. This would be a great upcycle for all kinds of stuff (I have a flamingo collection that would love it!). I can see a boy upending his Matchbox cars on it, a girl organizing Shopkins or Polly Pockets!

  11. What a great way to repurpose an old spice rack!

  12. What a great way to upcycle your spice rack! I have a friend that loves to collect salt & pepper shakers. I’m going to have to share this idea with her!

  13. Just last fall I litterally stumbled over an abandoned spice rack at the road side. Obviously I didn’t leave it there to wither and die. I took it home with me. It’s waiting patiently up in the attic for a similar poject like yours. I love how your Little DIY turned out! Great Job.

  14. Fantastic update, and so simple! Great job on this month’s destash!

  15. What a charming display! I love this series!

  16. Great way to repurpose the spice rack. I had a cousin who collected salt and pepper shakers — made gift finding easy! Ha! Also had a friend who only collected tomato salt and peppers. Your vintage finds are cute and fun!

  17. What a lovely find Sharon and so perfect for your adorable salt and pepper shakers.

  18. It’s such a creative way to display your collection! Thank you for sharing at Vintage Charm–pinning!

  19. That is precious. What a great way to show off your cute salt and pepper shakers. Thanks for linking to Keep In Touch.

  20. Very cute Sharon! Great way to show off your collection. I have quite a large accidental S&P shaker collection as well. A lot of mine are in a kitchen drawer and get pulled out when they fit the time and season. 🙂 Thanks for sharing with SYC.
