I finally have gotten around to organizing my junk drawer. It was really in need of some love, but I have been putting it off for awhile now, trying to focus on other more pressing projects. I have justified my procrastination by telling myself that it is just a junk drawer and by definition should not be organized. I mean, it’s right there in the title, “junk!” But, that line of thinking can only satisfy my obsessive need for order for so long. It would appear that the time was finally up. Luckily, I found these AMAAAAZING, easy DIY custom drawer dividers from Rockler.*
I have this closet that I have been ignoring for a while. It is connected to my studio and editing room, so I have been using it for storage. However, up until now, it had just been a small room crammed full of junk. Well, I finally got around to cleaning it out, and decided that I really should finish it out as an actual closet. The problem was that I didn’t want to spend the money for a system in a closet that will not see very much use. So, rather than go out and purchase a kit, I decided to use some left over melamine boards to make my own easy DIY closet system.
False Bottom Drawer Compartment
Lately, I have been faced with the never ending task of finding places to hide things. For those of you that are unfamiliar with my situation, I have an autistic child. This means that I must be as vigilant as I would be with a toddler when it comes to child proofing the house. As I am sure you know, with little ones it is important to keep certain items (medication, tools, candy) in a safe and out of reach location. There is also a need to hide private items, such as documents, petty cash, etc.
Well, I promised to show my knife drawer, and I have finally gotten around to finishing it up. I decided to make the drawer a combo knife, cutting board drawer. So, I hope that everyone enjoys this easy how to.
