If you've been around here much lately, you've heard me complain about how long our laundry room and pantry renovation has taken. But, I have to admit, the past two months or so of it being finally so close to done has been fun! All of the little details of a big project are my favorite part! With the laundry room, the DIY chicken wire light fixture and the rustic ironing board hanger were my favorites. For the pantry portion of this renovation, the wood burned storage crates and the DIY spice racks I'm sharing with you today are my favorite small touches that pull the whole room together.

You might have noticed in my pantry storage crates tutorial that there is a crate labeled "spices." Well... we have a lot of spices. We needed more spice storage! I decided to add some small shelving to the pantry just for our most frequently used spices as well as oils and vinegar. I searched everywhere for a wall mounted spice rack, but I couldn't find anything that was quite what I was looking for, so I decided to update a wooden spice rack. This easy Ikea hack turned out to be exactly what I had in mind!
I borrowed my husband's awesome multi-tool to cut strips of hardware cloth. I used the same tool to bend and fold the edges of the hardware cloth into the corner of the spice rack. The pieces fit perfectly snug. I used a staple gun to secure the hardware cloth to the bar crossing over the front of the shelving, careful to keep the top edge of the wire from showing above the wooden bar.
I had planned on gluing the wood burned labels on, but they just so happened to be the perfect size to fit snugly between the two pieces of wood! You could apply a little super glue or wood glue if needed.
