An Apothecary at Home

I'm having a bit of a blitz in the cottage right now and as it is only half finished, we are quite limited on storage space. One of the ways I have found around this is by finding fab ways to display stuff, thereby freeing up valuable space in cupboards. Recently I was finding it difficult to find things in my witchy cupboard, when I saw a piccy on Pinterest and a light bulb went ding!.
Another lady had created an apothecary shelf, and I thought this was a fab idea for my remedy/incense herbs. So off I went raiding John's wood stash and using his power tools whipped up this  !!  I am so pleased with it, been ages since I have done any sort of woodwork, and looks good if I do say so myself.
I painted all the lids black on the jars they were already in, got some labels from a store on Etsy, hung it up and stood back. Now please ignore the fact it is slightly wonky on the wall but what do you think?
Actually I have been on a bit of a pinterest crafty streak, making bits I have been meaning to for ages, just need to find time to photograph them.
Right must get on and start making dinner, squash and chickpea stew tonight, yumm, and make some meatball calzones to freeze for when the boys are up. If I am not back before, see you at the party on Saturday :)

  3. I was just reading on the Mad Tea Party trail about how all September Artfully Musing will be covering DIY topics including setting up one's apothecary! You must share yours!
    (I hear there may even be prizes.)

  4. This looks fab. I had noticed your pins on pinterest :) Now I can't wait to create a door wreath using oranges for Jack O lanterns x
