Repurposed Spice Rack

I came across this spice rack at a local thrift store and thought it would be perfect to organize all our bottles and shakers. I estimated the sizes of the bottles and assumed they would fit, but in the end they didn't. So why not turn it into a jewelry rack!

I'm a big believer in using things I already have lying around, so for this piece I used paint and fabric left over from previous projects. I started by removing one of the shelves and lightly sanding the surfaces. Then I covered the whole thing with a coat of dark brown paint.

Since the teal paint is from a previous furniture project I did, I went for the same effect on this piece. After it was all painted, I wrapped a piece of cardboard with leftover fabric, stapled it to the back and added some hooks. It actually ended up being way more useful this way than as a spice rack!
