The Easy, $10 IKEA Hack That’ll Get All Your Spices in Order
No matter what your kitchen storage situation is, it seems like space for storing spices always comes up short. Fortunately, a little creativity (and some basic DIY skills) can go a long way for those of us who tend to keep lots of extra spices on hand.
If you’re looking for a simple method for storing and organizing your spice jars, there’s no shortage of spice rack hacks. There’s the trick with the tension rod in your spice cabinet, and, for surprisingly cute and convenient spice storage on a fridge or below a cabinet, there’s the trusty magnetic spice jar hack. And for those low on cabinet real estate but with hefty drawer space, we love a good spice drawer organizer!
Now, we have another trick for you to try in your kitchen: the IKEA picture frame ledge spice rack hack!
The minimal, modern MOSSLANDA picture ledge is a cheap (it’s only $10!) and super-easy way to keep your spices in order, whether you are short on storage in your kitchen or just want a fun, new way to display your favorite cooking ingredients.
Depending on how many spices you generally keep in your kitchen, purchase and mount one of these IKEA picture frame ledges (or seven?) either on a wall in your kitchen or inside your pantry. According to shopper reviews, the ledge is both super sturdy and really easy to install. And it’s the perfect size for little spice containers! Instead of resting frames on the ledge, line up your spices.
If you’re not able to get your hands on the IKEA version, just about any picture ledge will do the trick. Amazon has tons of reasonably priced options — especially if you’re looking for a different aesthetic to vibe with your kitchen. (We’re partial to these rustic wood ones, which cost less than $30 for three.)
Not only do you get extra storage this way, but you also get storage with a nice little decorative touch.
