- Wood in the correct length/width that will fit inside your door. I opted for 3/4 inch and cut to fit inside the frame. This all depends on the type of cabinets you have.
- Liquid Nail
- Small hooks
- Duct tape or clamps
- *optional* Paint or stain to match your cabinets
Make sure your wood is the correct size to fit inside your cabinets and allows your cabinet doors to close. I measured out to be sure the wood was placed to give enough room for my spoons and cups to hang and the door to close easily. If you’d like, paint or stain the wood at this point.
Attach your hooks to the wood. You can put as many or as few as you’d like. I put mine directly in the center and 2 inches apart. This gave enough room for the largest measuring cups and spoons to fit without bumping into the ones next to them. As an option, you can write the size of each cup/spoon above it’s area. That has been the easiest way for me to see where what size is when I’m making something.
To attach the wood to your cabinets, apply a thin layer of liquid nail. Place duct tape on each end to hold it in place while it dries. Allow to dry overnight. The next morning, remove tape and you are ready to go! Hang your cups and enjoy knowing where everything is at all times!
On the other side of my cabinet, I added chalkboard paint. Using some masking tape, I taped around the edges and then painted three coats of the chalkboard paint It’s SO handy! As you can see, I added some measurements that I sometimes forget….that is a HUGE help, so I’m trying to Google in the middle of my recipe.
Hopefully that gave you some inspiration and you can help get your kitchen organized, especially with Thanksgiving coming up soon!
