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.
Efforts to get my kitchen completely organized are starting to payoff. I just love to open these drawers and see everything looking so beautiful and orderly. I have finally created a low budget but high quality drawer system. Today, I am providing the details for this dish drawer organizer.
So, I needed a thread shelf to hang on my new wall storage system, and I have seen a few similar to this one floating around on the web.
Like this one found at Sugar Bee Crafts,
or this one found at The Creative Homemaker. I like how she added the bobbin nails. I may do that later.
However, none were exactly what I wanted. So,off to the hardware store to pick up some supplies and get started on one customized to my requirements. (Note: as of this photo I still haven’t moved all of my thread supply to the case. But I will get around to it eventually).
Not your typical slat wall
Lately, I have been on a quest to get my entire house organized. If you are a frequent visitor here, then you have probably seen my Utensil Drawer project. (If not, I recommend reading that article next). 🙂 Anyway, I have been really wanting to add a slat wall to my craft/sewing room, but I wasn’t satisfied with any that I had seen. They were either way too expensive, or I was worried about not being able to find the accessories that I would need. Plus, I just knew that if I installed one, the manufacturer would discontinue that line, and I would be left searching for no longer available pieces. So, like so many other things, I just decided to make one myself.
Do you prefer everything to be neatly organized? Well, I do too. So, I have been on a quest to get every inch of my kitchen organized. I have very deep drawers on both sides of my cooktop, so this is the best place to store all of the cooking utensils. However, I hate shuffling around through drawers, searching for a spatula or a spoon. I needed a solution, and I knew just what I wanted – a deep drawer utensil organizer!
