Now that I am at home full-time, getting my kitchen organized has become a priority. There is no real rhyme or reason to where everything is stashed, all of my cooking supplies are pretty much just jammed into random drawers. So when I’m cooking I end up going from drawer to drawer trying to find my measuring cups and spoons and I end up becoming frustrated. I had seen inside cabinet organizers on Pinterest and mentioned the idea to my husband and bless him, he got right to work on it.
We had some left over trim wood from a home improvement project last year, so I went to Wal-Mart and grabbed some cup hooks and we were ready to get started. I chose the cabinet next to the stove that I keep my spices in to house the organizer. Hubby measured the length of the inside from one door jamb to the other, it’s important that the wood doesn’t get in the way of the door jamb or the cabinet won’t be able to close.
Once we had the measurement, my hubby used a jagged saw to trim the wood to the correct length. He then was able to screw the cup hooks into the wood by hand.
Once he had the cup hooks in it looked liked this:
I wasn’t thrilled about the idea of drilling holes in our cabinet door, so we used some velcro that we had in our craft drawer instead. We put three strips of velcro on the back of the wood piece as my husband is so proudly showing here:
And put three corresponding pieces of velcro on the inside of the cabinet door where we wanted the organizer to hang:
Then it was just a matter of connecting the velcro pieces to hang the organizer in the cabinet. We did two organizers, one for my measuring cups and another for my measuring spoons and other miscellaneous kitchen items. I am thrilled with the way it turned out and now I will always know exactly where my measuring cups and spoons are!
This project took less than half an hour to complete and I love how it provides organization in an out of the way place, freeing up space in the kitchen and adding convenience. This is a very easy and inexpensive organization solution, and since there is so no nailing or drilling, this would work perfectly for renters, too.
Now my kitchen is one step closer to being organized!
