Acrylic Paint Storage Using Spice Racks — 11 Comments

  1. Love it!!! Very creative!! I used to have lots of paint and hubby built a very thin shelves, but I love your idea better!

  2. This is a fabulous idea! Alas, I could not find those spice racks at Ikea. They have something similar, but not as awesome and convenient. *sigh* I’m still totally stealing your idea, but my finished product will be inferior.

    • Heather,Ikea still has these Ribba picture ledges. They come in size 21 3/4″ (the one shown here), and a longer one (45 1/4″). They sell them in the store or you can purchase on their website. -Elise

  3. what are paint pyramids? Love this idea. Will the racks hold bigger bottles of paint? I have a few bottles that are 8oz and some that are 4oz.

    • Katie, the shelves are 3″ deep. I keep my Americana chalk paint jars on them, though they tilt a bit because they don’t quite fit inside the shelf. Paint pyramids are a genius little invention. I can paint the bottom of a project, then sit the painted surface on the pyramids and paint the rest without waiting for the bottom to dry. It helps paint the lower edges of the sides, since the project is elevated, and I can just do a spot touch-up on the bottom where the points of the pyramids touch. Does that make sense? I love them.

  4. Katie, I have been looking for a way of storing my paints on a shelve, but this idea is GREAT. Can’t hang from my wall, but intend to put on a piece of board and lean the board up against the wall with my work bench holding it there. As you, I have a LOT of paints. Right now they are all stored in photo boxes. Thank you for the idea. WONDERFUL.
