At the end of the day, my spice rack did not look anything like Ana's plan, but it did make my creative juices start.
I hung mine on my wall. I used a premade panel as the backing which I then stained. I boxed in the panel with a thin 1x2 along the sides so that the hanging wire would not show. The shelves are 1x3 trimmed with the same 1x2 to provide a ledge so that the spice bottles won't fall off.
Still waiting on my labels to arrive so have not loaded up the jars yet! Splurged on the jars from a specialty bottle company. They are high grade impact resistant plastic that is super clear and lightweight. The lids have a hinged top with one side having shaker holes and the other open to be able use a measuring spoon.
So proud of the finished result. Thanks Ana!
