Still can't do anything about this eye sore of a microwave. There are days when I think about just chunking it because it is so ugly, but Mr. Hungry would have a cow if he didn't have a way to make easy mac cups or heat up leftovers.
The shelves: The shelves were simply one piece of wood I had cut into 3 even pieces by the fine people at Home Depot. I bought plain white paint and gave them a couple of coats.
How they are hanging: They are hanging with tiny L brackets. If you are really interested in more specifics, you can email me and I can ask Mr. Hungry (I was not allowed in the kitchen during this process... apparently, I am not as helpful as I think I am when it comes to such projects... but don't get me wrong, I'm also thankful that I'm not needed... no problems here)
Spice jars: Bought these at Ikea for 4 for $3.99... pretty darn good deal if you ask me.
Labels: They are Martha Stewart labels sold at Michael's.
And the good news... this was all done for under $30, which is cheaper than most spice racks you can buy (which I don't like anyway because they take up valuable counter space).
This doesn't look like the terrible "before shot" that it really was before I forgot to take a pic of this disheveled shelf before I took out all of the spices, but trust me, it was bad. When I was first trying to organize, I bought these little mini risers, but they quickly bent and really just weren't providing the organization I was looking for.
