Spice Rack

We admit! we have  a little   a huge???? more like a hardcore obsession with spices and hot sauce. How often do you encounter people who would travel miles and miles just to get a bottle or two of hot sauce? Well that's us, unfortunately.  We would travel to Peppers in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware every now and then to restock and of course -- to please our taste buds. Having said that, we need a place to store and/or display our over flowing hot sauce and spices that we use daily. We need something that is easily accessible while cooking.Yes! we do have those pre-manufactured spice racks but in a small kitchen where space is at a premium, they tend to take up a lot of the space which we need desperately!

We finally came up with an idea to make use of the wall between our counter top and wall cabinets. Most people will put back splashes to make the kitchen look beautiful . . . but we figured, why not convert this 'empty' space for storage. We did splurge quite a bit in this project but we think it is all worth it.  

How do you store your spices? Does it make your cooking world easier? Well ours does, and we couldn't be more happier :-D
