This and That Rack


The Cranky Queen found this 1970's spice rack at a thrift store for 50 cents.  It was your basic brown wood...the spice bottles long gone or broken throughout the years. She had seen on Etsy or Pinterest, a similar idea using these little racks for storing nail polish. Thus, an idea was born!

So I spray painted the rack brick red...sanded it around the edges, & rubbed a walnut stain on it. The I printed off the words "This and That"...used my handy dandy hole punch and Modge Podged the circles into soda (or beer) tops..."grunging" the words so they looked old!
Just think of all the "odds n ends"... the "this & thats" that can be stored on this little rack.  Another recycle costing less than $1.00.  The Cranky Queen may be "Queen"...but she is a very frugal form of Royalty!

STAY CALM & RECYCLE A THRIFTY ITEM!

  1. I see those old spice racks ALL the time, and never thought of repurposing them in some way. Yours is fantastic! The bottle caps are what really make it special to me, and I love every little thing that's sitting on it too!

You just whip it up with stuff laying around the house and lo and behold; a true treasure worthy to be part of the Royal Kingdom. I am speechless....yeah right, like that's ever going to happen!
