IKEA Bekvam spice rack hacks

Whenever I go to Ikea I always seem to leave with a couple of Bekvam spice racks as there are so many ways in which one can use them. If you saw my post this week about transforming our home office into a nursery you will know that things are being shifted around here – again! We’ve had to change a few things in the hallway to make room for a pram so we’ve lost the hallway table and the table has moved into a corner of the nursery for me to work from (it’s actually a vintage school desk). Therefore, I’ve been looking for easy storage solutions for the hallway for letters and keys and I also need somewhere to store notebooks and stationery next to my desk. I have had a look on Pinterest and found some really great ways to use the spice racks that will help me solve these specific issues, as well as a few other ideas to use in the nursery for displaying books, toys and hanging clothes.

So, here is some inspiration for ways to use these cheap little racks that you may find helpful too…

I had never thought of mounting the rack upside down but it works brilliantly as a way to hang things from the rung across the rack. Image via @calivintage on Instagram.

I am definitely going to put up a couple of racks next to my desk to store stationery and notebooks as the desk is so small I can store anything on the table. Image via Bondville.

What about adding hooks to the rack to hang keys or jewellery. The racks are also great for storing nail varnishes and toiletries in a bathroom. So many possibilities.

I’m off to Ikea this weekend so I may have to pick up a few more spice racks…

    I do love seeing how far away you can get from the original intention with Ikea stuff
