I took the plunge, found a deal, and now, I’m a Keurig owner! I absolutely love my new friend, but a lot changes when you add that nifty new gadget to your kitchen.
One major change is the need to store my burgeoning collection of K-cups. I know there are a number of things you can buy, but let’s face it, who wants to spend money on the machine and then spend more money to store the supplies? Not me. Fortunately, I had a spinning spice rack collecting dust in the cabinet. I’d planned to get rid of it years ago, but knew it might come in handy at some point. Who knew I’d be repurposing it for K-cups? I’m glad I kept it because they fit perfectly.
To get the job down, I pulled in two of my favorite new friends to help: Zinnser Cover-Stain Oil Base Primer and Behr Premium Plus Interior/Exterior Hi-Gloss Enamel. The primer eliminates the need to sand and the paint is perfect for kitchen jobs. (I used the pair recently to repaint my table, thanks to a great post I found while trolling Pinterest.)
In just a few hours, my boring spice rack became the perfect companion to my new Keurig, and it plays well with everything else in the kitchen now that it’s black. A quick little DIY job that cost me nothing but time since I had the paint and primer hanging around.
FYI, the primer sells around $6 and I picked up the quart of paint for about $13. I wouldn’t have spent that much just for this project, but again, I’d used it for my table and just kept it around. I’m enjoying the results of this little repurposing project and hope it gives you some ideas. Have any other clever ideas about this? Leave me a comment and let me know!
