This week I finally got fed up with the chaos that is my kitchen. The kitchen is almost done (still have some little projects here and there), but I am finally cooking happy in my wonderful little space. Except when it comes to finding my cooking utensils and spices, that is. So, I took to Pinterest to find some DIY projects to help organize my drawers. Here's what I created:
I simply went to Lowe's, bought $20 worth of small pine boards, cut them to size, and glued them together. Brian admitted to having doubts about how my DIY organizer would come together, asking why I didn't just buy a drawer organizer from the store, however, he loves them now and realizes how much more functional the custom organizer is!

Finally, the most frustrating element of my cooking space was the lack of spice organization. Since we've started cooking again, knowing what spices we actually have not only makes cooking easier, it saves us money. We have so many duplicates because we keep buying stuff we already have! Ugh! So, what else would I do but make a DIY spice rack. The best part about this project was that it was free!! I made it out of some scrap wood I have laying around in my basement. Sweet!
