Spice Cabinet Facelift & Free Printables/ Snippets of Design

Fifteen years ago I bought a small spice cabinet from Target® which was actually meant to be a bathroom cabinet.

I filled it with small glass jars & then I hand wrote the names of the spices on tiny, little stickers & stuck them on top of the spices.

I was a young married mom with only 2 small children at the time

and I felt SOOOO “Martha Stewart-ee”.

Funny, it seems so simplistic to me now but it is honestly, one of the steps that helped bring me to where I am today…

{I know, funny, it was just a spice cabinet…}

I have however created an odd connection to the cabinet…

I absolutely refuse to get rid of it.  I just keep painting it to match my kitchen.

This time I painted it with Glidden® High Endurance Plus Paint+Primer in eggshell/satin

Antique White like I used on my kitchen walls.

 This time however, I went a step further, I took off the door & created some real labels.

It has become my favorite addition to my new pantry {which you can check out here} and kitchen {here}.

Just by chance, the cute little bottles I bought years ago happened

to match the new bottles I bought for my pantry from IKEA only a year ago.

You can purchase a set of spice jars here.

I have to admit…with the new labels I created & the black crochet thread wrapped around them,

the little spice bottles are still my favorite.

But like I said…maybe I am just sentimentally attached to my spice cabinet. ;)

I have created printables for you with all of the names of the spices I have.

I also left some blank in case you wanted to add some of your own.

I used Modern Number 20 Font.

I printed them each out twice on white cardstock from Walmart.

I cut them out & I ran them through my Create-a-Sticker.

You could also use these instructions to cut them from your Cricut® machine.

I stuck one label on the front & one label on the top of each bottle.

Then I wrapped my crochet thread around it a couple of times & tied it into a knot in the front.

easy peezy…;)

I posted the tutorial for the step stool { here} .  I also have a recipe and another Birthday party to post…

can’t wait! so much fun!

Tomorrow however, I will see you for Snippets worth Surfing…

see you tomorrow!

    Working on redoing our spice drawer now and am using your beautiful labels (will definitely link back to your blog on my blog post) but with the ones you left blank how do I add the extra spices I need on the PDF? Thanks sooooo much for sharing, they have turned out amazing so far!

    Hi Ashley!
    I am so sorry, You need to have Photoshop or a Professional version of Adobe Acrobat in order to add the extra spices. If you would like me to create some for you, I would be happy to do so, just follow the link to the shop button above. Thank you so much!

    Wow…thank you so much for this inspiration Amber, it’s stunning. I would just like to know…the words of the different items, that wasn’t Modern Number 20 Font, was it? I can see that the “generic wording” was, but the item names themselves don’t match that font. Thanks again from a sunny South Africa

    I love the labels and are going to make my own. You said in your instructions that you “cut” them out before putting them trough the label maker. What’s your trick for cutting circles?

    Where did you get the jars and how much do your pay per jar? I’m looking at redoing my collection of spices. I love the lids on your jars.

    Hi Erin!
    I bought my jars at Michael’s Craft Store years back. They probably still have them but if you prefer to order them,I found them here:

    They are the top product. Good luck!

    What are the dimensions of the spice stickers? I would love to find a paper punch so I don’t have to cut them by hand! :P They’re adorable and I can’t wait to use them!

    Hallo Norma,

    Can you please send me the dutch version by email?

    Hi Rachel,
    That is funny that you say that because I have since started printing them out on a 8.5 x 11 sheet of sticker paper and cutting them out with a Fiskars medium round squeeze punch. I LOVE it! Try that…I am sure you will like it a lot…
    They are about an inch around just in case k.
    xo,
