I only have two kids, but there is a third one that seems to follow my family wherever we go. No, it isn't a dog, my husband would have a heart attack. It is a doll. Lily has been apart of our family for four years, ever since my daughter got her for Christmas one year. She goes on every trip, every sleepover at grandma's house, it is all I can do to keep her from coming on every trip to the store.
Over the years, Lily has gathered almost as many clothes as a regular member of the family and since she doesn't grow out of them, they just keep piling up. We needed a place to hang up all of her clothes/dress ups and when I saw this Ikea Spice Rack, I knew it was perfect. All it needed was a new perspective on it. The best thing about this hack, is how easy it is. No saws, just flipping the shelf upside down.

The one snag with this shelf, is that is is obviously meant to hang the other way. If you try to hang it upside down with nails it will sit off the wall. In order to make it sit snugly against the wall, I hung it using hanging strips. I trimmed the strips a little so they wouldn't be visible when the shelf was hanging and used three strips to secure it.
We love this little shelf. It doesn't take up every much room, but has a huge impact on how we use Lily's space! What fun things have you made with an Ikea Spice Rack?
