Hi friends! Do you LOVE coffee like I do? Well I’ve been a huge fan of Keurig and the K-cup for a few years now, and today I’m sharing with you a quick, cheap and easy way to make your very own DIY Keurig K-Cup Organizer!
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of going thrift shopping at a local Goodwill with the lovely Andrea of Worley House and Laura of Pink Cake Plate. And it was so much fun! Not only did I score some great vintage Pyrex, but I also came across this empty spice rack. And a while back a friend of mine and A Night Owl contributor, Jen, mentioned that she had seen where you could upcycle an empty spice rack into a K-cup holder! I’ve always been on the lookout for a good and stylish K-cup organizer, but I’ve never wanted to pay $20-$30 for the plastic organizers I’ve seen out there, so I knew this was my solution!
The price tag on this old thing was $1.99. But lucky me! The day we visited Goodwill was 50% off Saturday! So for just $1 I knew I had a steal. I gave the rack a good washing, let it dry, then sprayed a couple of coats of spray paint (my go-to medium of choice) and voila! Pretty and functional!
What do you think of our DIY Keurig K-Cup Organizer? I’m just so happy with how it turned out. And now that it’s sitting next to my Keurig, full of my favorite Starbucks Verona K-Cups, I think I love it even more! What do you think?
Danette Dillon says
Wow. Hadn’t thought of doing that, but I going to now. Very cool.
kimberly, that looks amazing! so clean and sleek and modern. the black made all the difference. you are the queen of the upcycles. =)
Wow! So jealous! That looks great! We have the same coffee maker 🙂 I’ve never tried that K cup before so I’ll have to scope it out next time I’m at the store!
PS: I am sooo looking for spice racks to re-do now!
April @ illistyle says
Genius! I love it. And for $1! Thrifty crafts are the best! xoxo
Thanks April! Love your transformation too! xo
I love this! Turned out great!!! I was just getting ready to throw out my spice rack…think it’s going to get a new makeover this weekend. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Libby! Great timing! Good luck on yours!
Jill @ Create.Craft.Love. says
That looks awesome! What a great find and upcycle! Looks great next to the Keurig too! Now I need to go make some more coffee…=)
Oh, I love this! Our Keurig is burgundy – I wish we’d opted for black like yours! I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for a spice rack!
Thanks Jen! Good luck!
Andrea Worley says
Wowzers friend! it turned out so great!! Love it. 🙂 Now, I wanna find another one to makeover!
Trinity Bains says
You’re making me want to go to my local thrift store and search for one of my own….SO cute and SO functional! You have the best ideas!
angela king says
LOVE this. it’s so pretty. 🙂
Love it! I think I know someone who needs this in their life. What a great Christmas gift for a coffe lover.
Ronalee Duncan says
That looks awesome ! I am thinking that I need to start searching for an old spice rack. Great job.
SUPER CUTE!! and if you wanted to jazz it up even more, you could screw in a pretty drawer pull at the very top for a snazzy spin! 😉 LOVE it and am now on the HUNT for something fun to spray paint, you’ve created an addict outta me!
Julie S. says
This is EXACTLY what I use for my K-cups- but I really, really should paint it! 🙂
Oh fun! You definitely should!
What a great find and great job on the revamp!! Seriously, I LOVE my K-cup brewer, and if I didn’t already have an organizer my mom got me, something like this would be fabulous in my house. xo
Jaclyn Armstrong says
What a great idea! I wish I hadn’t just sent my old spice rack to Goodwill last week… 🙁
Laurel (@abubblylife) says
Great idea!! I have the reusable cups and do my own coffee in the keurig, but this makes me want to use K cups!!
What a fabulous find! Looks great 🙂
Amy of while wearing heels says
That is one heck of a transformation. What a brilliant idea. It looks so crisp and well organized. Love it!
Thanks Amy! xo
Chelsea A says
Genius! Fo real. I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for a cheap spice rack b/c these k-cups are taking up way too much space on my counter currently.
Right? I had them all in a basket and it just wasn’t visibly appealing. This is so much better!
Jocelyn @BruCrew Life says
I now know what I need to find when I go thrifting again:-) I have always wanted a stand for my K-cups but could make myself pay the price for them. Yay for fun and cheap thrift store goodies!!!!
omgoodness, WAY COOL!! I love it!! What a nice thrift find!! I love seeing when people get good luck and make something SO awesome like this.
BTW – I wanted to tell you – I don’t know if you know of me or not, but I’ve only been around a couple of months and when I first found your blog, one of the 1st posts I read was about your afternoon drink you make when you get off from work; the Mickey D’s sweet tea with a splash of creamer….Well – let me say this…I craved that for, I swear it seemed forever..but then I finally remembered and had everything on hand and made me a gallon of my sweet tea and got out my Starbucks tumbler and omg!! Addicted! Really…this is totally my NEW thing, girl!! My husband makes it for me now when he’s being his sweet self…& he even told me HE loves it!! I always try to get him to share my iced vanilla coffee and he hates it. Bummer. But, he LOVES this!! And so do I! I told him it was from you and he even asked me this AM if I’d told you how much we love it, yet?! LOL!!! THANK YOU, KIMBERLY!!!
LOL Sorry for the awkwardly long comment! Just had to tell ya!
Sarah Carletti says
How awesome is that? And it turned out great! Your blog has wonderful information!
so clever! 🙂
Heather Kaluf says
Love this! I have a Keurig and I am always looking for different ways to store my Kcups. I must keep an open for one of these 🙂
Thank you and good luck!

Love your cute site, I especially love the cute owl! I’m a new Twitter follower.
Thanks Elise! What’s your Twitter handle? I want to be sure to follow back!
Wow, how perfect is that?!
What a great upcycle! As much fun as glitter, and ribbon, and fabric flowers can be… a nice coat of paint is sometimes all you need.
I so need this!! Hoping I can stumble across a spice rack for $1 too!! So cute!
Good luck Angie!

What an awesome idea…I love anything you can re-purpose and give new life. I’ll have to be on the lookout next time I’m thrifting 🙂
Now this is fantastically clever! I’m going thrifting to look for a spice rack now! Thanks for the great idea. Pinning!

That is a great idea!
Look at how perfectly that turned out, as if it was made for k-cups instead of spice buckets. Great job Kim!
Great idea! Thanks for linking up to our Pretty Things party. Hope to see you back next week!

That’s amazing! I love the mug as well.

Great idea! Yum!
What a great way to upcycle!
I love this so much, I bought one today at GW. Did you have a hard time covering it with spray paint?
Oh how fun! I didn’t…have you tried it yet?
nest of posies says
get outta town! this is genius!
i’m on the hunt for one now too!
Hehe, thanks Kellie!! xo
It is also a great upcycle for embossing powder canisters. More than one use!
Great idea, April!
kim lazor says
Very Green, and creative idea! Love it! 🙂
I saw a spice rack last week at the Goodwill that didn’t have any of the jars in it, and I WONDERED if it would work for this. Now that I know it will, I better get my butt back there and hope they still have it!
Awesome Katie – good luck!
Let’s talk about how you have my most favorite blog evah! You host fabulous giveaways and of course the instagram hop and then give relevant posts like this one. I absolutely adore this and hope I can find something so fabulous to spice up my kcup life. 🙂
Elizabeth you are just the sweetest! Your comment just made my day – or evening, you know, when I blog, hehe! I really appreciate the kind words!
Okay, this is a great idea! If I didn’t already have a carousel I’d be doing this for sure! I just used my Keurig for the first time tonight and I’m in love!! Great post 🙂
Thanks Lacey! Congrats on the Keurig – your love for it will grow! I think it’s my favorite appliance ever!
