Where, oh where to store spices? If you've ever asked yourself this, you are not alone. Recently Kitchn reader Karen wrote to us about this very problem, and how she solved it: "As with many, where to store my growing collection of spices for easy access was a question," she told us. "I decided to turn an awkwardly placed cabinet near my stove into a spice cabinet." You can see her new spice racks above, but that's not all there is to the story. See them in action below!

Yup, that's right! They pull down. Karen continues:

I installed two Pull Down Spice Racks and now everything is out of the way but in easy reach. To top it off I used chalkboard paint and chalk and wrote out measuring conversions on the inside of the door for quick reference. The project cost less than $50 and one afternoon... I hardly used this cabinet before as it was difficult to reach items in it.

A great solution for a pesky problem. Do you have something like this in your kitchen?

Thanks for sharing, Karen!
