this tutorial on Pinterest that showed how to make a really cheap and easy organizer for my utensil drawer. Can we say life hack. This is so easy, I really suggest you try it.
What you will need:
1. Poplar craft boards 1/4x3x2 they are about $1.50 a board (I only found these at Lows. Home Depot didn't have anything like them.)
2. Instant bond glue
3. Hand saw
4. Measuring tape
What I did first was organize the drawer. Separate all the utensils into types and place them in the drawer how they fit best. It was pretty hard to come up with a layout that worked, especially so I could reach the ones in the back. You could always get the full extend drawer sliders if you want them to come out farther, but I didn't get those.
I then used straws to mark out where I wanted to put the boards. This way I had a visual and something to measure.
Before I glued the boards together, I put them in the drawer where they were supposed to go, to make sure they fit properly. Its a good thing I did too. Two of the boards were to long and needed to be trimmed... several times. Let's just say my measurements were slightly off.
After all the measuring and cutting was done, I glued the boards together and let them dry. They turned out really great. I'm now wondering what other drawers I can organize :)
As always, I would love to hear about your drawer organizing projects. Comment below or send me a photo to SHendersonPhoto(at)gmail.com
