Magnetic Spice Rack

As an avid house blog reader and cook I've seen a number of posts out there on spice organization. For along time now I've wanted to move all of my little bottles of spices out of the pantry and closer to my stove. The only problem is I don't have a ton of room for all the spices I use.

The best solution I could come up with was a take on post I saw over at Apartment Therapy (How To Make a Wall-Mounted Magnetic Spice Rack). First we went to Uline and purchased a few cases of glass jars with white plastic lids. Then we found some cheap, but strong Neodymium Magnets and glued them to the top of the lids. In my first attempt we used a hot glue gun to attach the magnets, but as we've used the spices we've decided that hot glue is not the best choice. The strength of the magnets and lack of strength of the hot glue has left me with several lids without magnets. So as the magnets separate from the lids we've been re-gluing them with crazy glue.

The end result is beautiful. It adds some great color to the dominate white side of the kitchen and also puts all of my spices within reach.
