Ikea "Bekvam" spice rack hack: A(nother) progress report

Rightio then, seems we're almost at the end of the "Bekvam" Spice rack journey (I know, sad, isn't it?). With the racks up and Anoushka's room finally painted a colour, the only thing left to do is give them their own final coats of (Dulux Vivid) white. But golly gosh, it's been a wonderful ride, made infinitely better by uber-decor-blog Ohdeeoh giving them a big ol' "hey-ho"!

Enormous thanks to Nicole of First House on the Right for alerting me to it. I know. Who misses their own shout out on OHDEE-bloody-OH!?!!? Me. That's who. Below is Nicole's very own "Reading Corner" - you can catch her step by step here.

Oh, and in case you were wondering what they look like now, here is my Spice Rack wall REVEAL!

Walls painted in Dulux "Sweet Sixteen", Spice racks from Ikea, Tarnby rug from Ikea, Moroccan Pouffes in bright orange and gold from the Table Tonic online store. That's a wrap.
