I never in my life would have thought that I could be so excited by a spice rack, but I'm completely enamored with my new one. First of all, it's lucite, and I love objects rendered in lucite that you normally wouldn't think of in that material. Next, these spice labels from Mignon Kitchen Co. , which basically make the whole thing. I'm just in love with the charm that they add with the adorable little illustrations and the fun, soft colors.
Below is what I had before. Not horrible by any means, but the spices were about three years old and I (being the stickler for details that I am), really wanted jars with white tops, not black.
I think it's a big improvement. The new version is fresh, unique, and modern, and the colorful labels add a much-needed dash of soft color to my beige kitchen. It's also versatile, in that it can be hung on the wall (which I think would look awesome). Now I just need to put my spice rack to good use, by cooking more and ordering less Seamless :)
