DIY Rustic Wall Mounted Spice Rack

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!


How to make the spice rack

First, I put together the Ikea Bekvam shelves I bought...

I gave the shelves two coats of this black spray paint.

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.

Then, I made wood burned labels that said "spices" and "oils" using the same technique as I did for my pantry storage crates. To review those steps, you can find my wood burning tutorial here

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.
The whole project was fairly quick and easy. Last, we mounted them on the wall and stocked them with these oil bottles and these spice jars.

I think they actually turned out even better than I imagined. They fit our new pantry design so perfectly!

  1. Cuuuute! I need some these! I really love the wood tags and the wire mesh.

  2. I love this makeover. The netting is the perfect touch. Stopping by to let you know you are being featured on Friday’s P3 Party post! Have a great week! Thanks for pinning!

  3. I love these and would like to do this in my London flat. How do you go about mounting these to the wall once they're complete?

    1. Hi Marissa! If you buy the Ikea shelves I started the project with, they have holes in the back for hanging. Then they are easily mounted to the wall with nails or screws. I used some drywall anchors because I was worried about the weight of the oil bottles. They have held up just fine! Hope this helps :)
