Magnet Spice Rack/Bulletin Board

I have spice issues; they've been out of control for some time now, and I'm finally ready to admit my problem and conquer it.

Some of my friends like Pottery Barn; others spend their time at Anthropologie. But give me Home Depot any day.

I cleared out a drawer full of spice packages and bottles, and put them into these cool magnetic containers from World Market. Now all I needed was a magnet board to hang them on. Unwilling to settle for a plain boring metal sheet, I browsed the aisles of Home Depot until I found these. They were in the "vent" section and came in several sizes; these are about 15"x8".

I made some labels on clear decal paper and filled my jars.

With my spice issues are under control, I was inspired to tackle the space issues over my desk as well. Now, if only the kids' clothes and toys were magnetic...


  1. Really great idea!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a creative idea! I think you need to change the name of your blog. Simple, but not ordinary!

  3. This is a great idea. I like how it hangs so it doesn't take up counter space. And the colors are fun :)
