Getting Organized In The Kitchen


Let The Organizing Begin!!!

It's a new year, which means it's a great time to organize those spaces  you use every day. Our Kitchen is one of two spaces I can think of that are in desperate need of organizing.

Thank goodness Mr. DIY had a couple of hours to spare and made an organizer for our 2nd most used kitchen drawer 

I laid everything out in the drawer the way I thought they would fit best.

Then, I drew how large each section would be on graph paper.

Mr. DIY purchased some 1/4" thick 3" x 4 ft. poplar boards at Lowes. The finished width is 2 1/2", so he only had to cut them to length.

He used a thin plywood purchased in 2 x 2 sheets for the bottom.

 I didn't want to put a clear coat on the wood, but wanted to protect the wood, so I used some Contact Grip Prints to line the bottom of each section.

I measured each section, then cut them out. Each section needed a little trimming because no board is ever 100% straight.

I added some liner at the end in the sections where the knives will go to protect the drawer for their pointed tips.
