There are many types of spice rack organizers for the kitchen. There are ones that can be added to a drawer, others that are used in a cabinet. Some are attached to the cabinet. And others that are removable and easily replaceable as needed. In this post, I am talking about a spice rack organizer that is attached to the cabinet for easy pull-out and helps divide the shelf. I have had the opportunity to review a spice rack organizer by SpaceAid, recently and wanted to share with you this great product.
Disclosure: I was given the money only to purchase this spice rack so I could try it out and share it with you and my Instagram page.

The BEFORE picture of the shelf I am transforming.
First, this is what my cabinet looked like when I remodeled my kitchen in 2014. At that time, I decided to use the then organizing products available in the market. Since then, there have been many updates on various kitchen organizers, including the spice rack organizers.
Tools used to do this DIY Spice Rack Organizer Project.
I did not need many things for this project.
Decide how you are going to organize your spice rack shelf.
I have vinegar and hot sauces in this cabinet, among other things. Since this spice rack is smaller than I had before, I decided to see if I could place them all on one shelf.
After reviewing the products I had, I then removed ones that expired. That made it possible to have all of the vinegar and hot sauces and my other spices on one shelf. Yay.
Clean the shelf and place liner on it.
First, I decided to clean the shelf and line it with a plastic liner. I cut it down to size and added it to the shelf.
Below are the plastic liners I used from Amazon.com(affiliate). You can buy them at The Container Store and Target as well.
I particularly liked the plastic clear liners because it cleans up nicely and doesn’t damage the cabinet. They last a very long time too.
Determine where on the shelf I should place the pull-out spice rack organizer.
I took the two largest bottles and placed them next to each other. Then, I took the base of the spice rack organizer and placed it next to the bottle. This told me that the spice rack organizer could be installed at that point. So, I marked the holes on the plastic liner.
Follow the instructions to attach the spice rack organizer to the cabinet.
I followed the easy instructions to install the base in the cabinet. So, I removed the base for the organizer and attached it to the cabinet on the marked spots from the last step. Four screws need to be used to attach the base to the cabinet.
Add the spice rack organizer to the base and slide on the track then add the spices and seasonings.
I added the spice rack back to the base. It slid right on the tracks very easily. Now, it was time to place the items in ABC order. I pretty much had them in order but needed to adjust a few spices.
Label the areas and the spice rack organizer.
I labeled the shelves so it would make it easier for everyone to remember where things go since things were being moved around in the cabinet.
Because I had more room now, I decided that I could reorganize the second shelf as well.
Keep in mind: I have another drawer with frequently used herbs and spices. Here’s the post I wrote about the product I used for this drawer. HOW TO MAKE A SPICE DRAWER ORGANIZER IN A SMALL SPACE
Here’s what the shelf looks like now.
I love it! Check it out when it pulls out. You can see everything in the back.
