Introduction: Make a Nice Spice-rack on the Cheap!

About: I love making things. I love to read. I love to ride my bike.

I made(modify'ed) this Visually Stunning spice rack for around 15-20 dollars. Not including the cost of the spices of course. 

Step 1: Materials

I got all this stuff for under $20$ at my local evil neighborhood mega-mart. Really the Idea behind this is to just make as basic  a rack as possible, and  let zee spices be zeh eye candiee... sorry, er... hmm... I found these salt and pepper shakers for super cheap. They look great with the spices in them.
  • wooden dowels
  • racks
  • shakers - since mine had holes I lined each cap with foil.
  • wood glue/super glue
  • drill
on too step two foo.

Step 2:

I drilled holes for the dowels and then after applying a little glue, I set all the pieces in place. While everything was drying, I began emptying all my spices into there new homes. I kept a few of the nicer glass jars to re-use. I keep chilli powder and garlic in the big ones... Since my new spice jars had hole I lined them with foil. I may go back and actually seal some of them with silicone putty or something, but then again that might be overkill.

I wanted to keep them unlabeled for a clean look, but practicality(my mom:P) reared its gruesome head, so I made the labels using using avery medium size peel and stick. 
Pro Tip  - Use a wide strip clear tape to 'laminate' the labels before you cut them out!

Well I think thats about it!

    Very cool! I guess you could also label them on the lids or keep the labelled side to the back if you wanted the clean look. Maybe if you cut the labels in a circle as big as the top you could kill two flies with one stone by labelling the bottles cleanly and closing the holes at the same time. But I like your labels as well - quite professional!

    Cool, that looks really nice and sure holds a lot.
