Sliding Spice Rack

  • May 14, 2018


My in-laws recently moved into a beautiful home, although their kitchen is smaller than what they were used to. In exploring options for providing additional storage, we focused on the unused space alongside the refrigerator.

My inspiration for this project was the Shanty 2 Chic Spice Rack. This is an oversized version and instead of being mounted on the back of a door, attaches to the side of the wall using roller slides. This 66”H x 29”D organizer provides 17 linear feet of shelving in a compact space, within easy reach. It’s easy to pull out even when fully loaded and once in place, freed up an entire kitchen cabinet for other purposes. I stained it to match the kitchen cabinets.

  • What a great idea! That holds a ton of spices! Did you run into any difficult spots when creating this?

    • Thanks.  It was a fun project and the build was very straightforward.  The thing I struggled with the most was getting the stain to match the existing cabinets as close as possible.  I used a Minwax Cherrywood Gel Stain and blended in some dark walnut before applying the polyurethane top coat.

    • Thank you.  I'm planning on doing a few more projects to complement it and provide more storage in their small kitchen

  • My wife has been asking for something like this. I may steal your idea and do this later this summer.

    • The fun thing with this project was being able to create something tailored to the available space. It looks like it's always been there. I have some other space saving kitchen projects in mind that I hope to do soon.
