Spice Rack Bead Organiser

G'day.

I rarely get to do a bit of thrifting, but lately I have been stalking every single one looking for spice racks. I've seen countless pictures on pinterest where spice racks have been used for craft supplies and since I use spice jars for my seed beads it got me thinking.




Then I stumbled across this little beauty for $2, so excited and I am pretty sure my parents had one of these back in the 80's.

Anyway as much as I love Masterfood's I was after a different look. So I broke out the chalk paint and painted her up.




After I painted I kept thinking it needed a graphic or something, but once I put the beads in I think they give her a little sparkle and I'm glad I didn't add any extra.


DIY Delight or Disaster? Well I think it's a delight and I like having the beads sparkling I'm all about seed beads, cheap but pretty.

Thanks for reading,

  5. Love it! As you know, I don't do jewelry (yet), but I do use spice jars for buttons. I have one of those revolving spice racks on a shelf in my disaster of a craft room/office space.

  14. Your collection of beads is so colorful. They really pop against the white like eye candy for a crafty bead-er.

  17. That's how it starts with the chalk paint addiction. You do one thing and love it, that leads to another, and another, and another... I'm just giving you fair warning here. :)

    It turned out great. I like the colorful beads in there too (they're 'purty').
