spices two.

the second post i ever made on this blog was about making my spice rack. three years later, it was in need of a little bit of love. we had mounted it over the only counter in our kitchen, where it was subjected day after day to the turmoils of food prep.

so, since the labels needed to be replaced anyway, i figured a change in design was in order.

much more subdued this time around. and more chevron-y.

i'm quite a fan of their new look. and, while i was at it, they got a new home. they no longer live over the counter, so mayhaps these labels will last more than a few years. granted, i'll probably get tired of this look in three more years and want another change.


  1. What template did you use? Can you buy circle label paper? I like it. Can't wait to see where you put it. I was hoping you'd post a shot of the new location. I'm guessing this is what you were up to while you were doing laundry. :-) Nice work.

  2. i made the pattern using inkscape (a freeware photoshop-esq program) and i cut out the circles out of regular sheets of label paper. i actually put it behind the back door in the kitchen. it's not a good spot for photo taking, hence no on location shots.
