DIY Ikea Spice Rack Bookshelves

I know I’m one of the last people on earth to do this Ikea hack, but just in case I’m not, here’s the super easy tutorial for creating these cheap and easy bookshelves.

What You’ll Need:
-Ikea Spice Racks (I used 4, but you can use as many as you want)
-Wood Stain
-Foam brush
-Piece of cardboard
-Screws/Nails for hanging

1. Unwrap and assemble the spice racks. There’s directions included, but they’re super easy to put together.

2. Stain or paint your wood. I used my favorite Minwax brand in the color Provincial 211 and applied it with a foam brush and then used a paper towel to wipe it off.
3. Cut a piece of cardboard to the size of the rack and then mark and punch holes in the cardboard from the back of the spice rack. When you’re ready to hang the rack, use the cardboard to help mark your holes on the wall. This makes hanging the racks so much easier.  
4. Add books and get to reading!
