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.

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.
