Since we will have open shelves instead of cabinets on the range side of the kitchen at the Mountain Cottage, I needed to come up with a pretty solution to store spices. I thought a tiered tray would be perfect, so I looked high and low for a tiered tray that would fit on the counter without taking up too much space and fit easily under the open shelves. Here's what I found...
It's a cute, farmhouse or cottage style galvanized tiered tray. I found it at CurtisCreations,com
As you can see there's extra space and plenty of room to hold more bottles of spices, should we purchase more.
I keep savory spices such as salt and garlic powder on the top tier and sweet spices & things for baking on the bottom tier.
It's perfect for what we need.
As you might have surmised from the photos, the kitchen at the Mountain Cottage is coming along nicely. The butcher block counter tops are installed, as well as the white subway tile. Mr. DIY installed the frames for the open shelving last weekend.
It's so nice to start working on the Mountain Cottage again after nearly a year long hiatus (with a few exceptions) due to getting our house ready to sell, moving/downsizing and doing projects at our new house.
How do you organize your spices?
Here are some tiered trays available on Amazon that would be perfect in the kitchen. (affiliate links)
* Make sure the tray will fit under your wall cabinets, if that's where you plan to put it.
