Spice Rack Turned Car Rack

Yesterday I picked up
this spice rack at a garage sale for $2.  The plan was to just use it for the 18 nice glass spice jars, which I want to use for my own dried herbs and to give away my herbs and dry mixes as gifts.  Spice jars can really add up so it was a great deal!

I was going to toss the empty rack back into my thrift store donation bag but then got an idea...

 ...the spice rack makes for a perfect little car garage for my 2 year old's car room!

I hung it down  at his height, just above his wooden car garage that he got for Christmas.  :-)

I also LOVE this idea to use a magnetic knife or tool holder to display metal cars on the boys' walls:

I may do something like that in my 4 year old's room since most of my 2-yr-old's cars are wood.  Here are a few links if you'd like to do some shopping yourself!  Happy organizing! :-)

Great idea! I was intrigued by the title of your post because I couldn't think of what kind of car rack could be made from a spice rack1
