I have been collecting paint sticks from Home Depot and Lowes for awhile because in my crazy mind I figured I can make something with them...... and.... well..... they are free!
As I was putting the forks and spoons back in the drawer the light bulb went off in my head. I really hate the plastic organizer I have in the drawer separating all the utensils.
What if I use the paint sticks and make my own dividers?
I started out with these.....
I drew up a plan of how I wanted this to be laid out in the drawer and measured and marked each stick. With a handsaw I cut to size. I didn't want it to be permanently attached to the drawer so I can clean the bottom if it gets dirty. So I made it to come out. I cut the pieces and glued each one.
I lined the drawer with shelving paper. This is a clear non-stick roll of a rubber liner.
After measuring and cutting the liner to fit, I placed the paint stick form into the drawer. Now it looks custom and did I mention it was FREE!!!!
I loved this project! I think I will do the rest of the drawers too! I even got more space out of it to store even more!!! And I think I will continue saving the sticks! I have some more ides for them!
So what do you think? If you like this Follow me on my journey to create!
