17 Clever Ideas to Rock Your IKEA Spice Racks

Ikea spice racks cost cheaper than Ikea wall book storage, Ikea key rack or Ikea hat rack. Bargain cheap compared to those other wall accessories. But what’s the difference? Why would I pay more if I can make all that, and more, with the cheaper spice rack? They didn’t call it “hacking” for nothin’. So, today, we have listed down several ideas to use Ikea spice racks.

The joy of woodworking hacks is from the making and the building. Make something new out of something. And hear people tell you, “Why didn’t I think of that?” “Yeah, well, thanks but it’s not for sale”.

The smaller the home space is, the more challenging hacking can get. But, there is fun in all the transformations! Just watch those Tiny Homes shows and you will be drooling with amazement at their exceptional skills! So why don’t we do just that. Big things start from small beginnings. We have to start somewhere right? With few tools and a lot of creativity, you can turn any wood into your home’s next clever furniture.
