Crafty De-Stash Kitchen Organization Board

Crafty De-Stash Kitchen Organization Board

This is the first month I have participated in this challenge.  It is the crafty de-stash challenge.  I think I could go on forever with this one and never have to purchase a thing.  Although we are allowed $10 to add to our stash items I did not have to use a dime.  I created this awesome kitchen organization board.  It went together super easy and only took me an evening to complete.  The perfect craft right?

Kitchen Organization Board

I love organizing and have recently been trying to get my craft supplies organized.  This time I needed a little kitchen organization board.

 

Materials Needed To Create A Kitchen Organization Board

I have added affiliate links for your convenience.  You can read my full disclosure here.

Wooden sign with frame – this was a set of two that I got from a garage sale

Cork Board

Chalk Paint

Small Paint Roller

Pocket Folders – or make your own pockets with your stash of scrapbook paper

Ribbon

Clothes pins – Black

Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Getting Started

Step 1

Jeff and I have been working hard to finally get our kitchen finished.  Since we added the board and batten the original kitchen organizer was too big.  I wanted something different on the wall anyway.  It was time for a change.

I got really lucky with this project. I got this cork at the Goodwill for $1.50 a while back but it is really old and I knew it would need a frame around it to keep it from crumbling around the edges.  It just so happened that I found the perfect solution.

I had purchased a set of two of signs for a kid’s bathroom at a garage sale.  I loved the wood frames and knew I could cover or paint the inside.  The cork is 3/8″ thick and it fit perfectly into the frame.

I cut a piece to fit inside the frame and rolled on the chalked paint with the small paint roller.  It needed just one coat of the paint.

Step 2

Using the stash.  Peggy gave me some pocket folders and the black clothes pins a long time ago and they were still here…unopened.  I did not use very many of them on this project so I still have some for later.  Heaven forbid I use all of something.

These pocket folders are from KI Memories and are also so old. I am sure they are no longer available but would be simple enough to make with scrapbook card stock.

I arranged them onto the board after the paint was dry.  The hardest part was making a decision as to where everything should be but I think I did okay in the end.

I even added some ribbon for tucking photos but I will need to use some push pins which is totally fine.

The ribbon wraps around the back of the cork board.  Then, using the hot glue gun I glued the cork to the frame.

Step 3

Adding the stuff.  Business cards fit perfectly into the smaller pockets and I found a fun card for the larger pocket.  A photo of Brian in the marching band was just right to add in the clothes pin.  The entire thing is fun and it looks good in my kitchen.

Hey Michelle, I did a little google search but I am not sure if this might be the solution. Maybe there is something in your html that shouldn't be there... It's always worth a try, right? http://smallbusiness.chron.com/strikethrough-text-html-42219.html

What I do when I can't Find the solution myself, I go ask the specialists. I am part of a fb group called WPCafe. There is usually someone there, knowing how to solve the mytery. I am crossing my fingers that they can help you!

It's awesome how a little organization can go a long way isn't it? I could totally use SOMETHING like this, especially after the kids go back to school. Thanks for the INSPIRATION, going to be LOOKING for SOMETHING similar now to makeover and give it a try. PINNING :)

I love this project of yours!!! I SCHEDULED it for several shares on pinterest. I love it when you score those wonderful treasures like the two wooden frames you've found! Did you notice that some text and Links in your post are crossed out? Is this on purpose?

Michelle

Hi Habiba! I did notice the crossed out links and it is NOT on purpose. This recently started happening and I am not sure how to fix it. I am trying to look at settings to see if I did something on accident. Thanks so much for scheduling on Pinterest. I appreciate it. If you know how to help with my crossed out links please let me know!
