I pinned this great storage idea this afternoon. It was going to allow me to clear out a whole drawer in my kitchen. When you only have three drawers, that's pretty valuable. The pinned project said it had been done for around $10. Not bad, right. Then I realized I could do it for free. Okay, so here's the idea.
Brilliant, right?! Why have I never thought of this. Okay, maybe I had seen it before. I had pinned a similar idea for cutting boards before. But I started thinking.... Plastic wrap, foil, wax paper, none of those are very heavy. Why not just upcycle something I already have lying around. Something that would be going out in the trash sooner or later.
A cereal box. And I had some zebra print contact paper lying around from a laundry room project. Both totally free. And I was so excited about knocking this project out, I didn't take time to stage a pretty picture. Just working in the middle of my living room floor, finishing watching the ACMs.
A Honey Nut Cheerios box, contact paper, scissors and a pencil. I just measured and drew a straight line about halfway up the box. I cut on the line and covered the box in contact paper.
I grabbed a couple of push pins and poked them through the box, into the drawer and I had a food wrap storage box. Pretty sweet.
Ready for my close up!
Seriously guys, five minutes. And absolutely free. And now I have a whole extra drawer of kitchen storage. Now I just have to figure out what to put in that drawer. So excited with my free project!
What are you guys organizing lately? Any great free & fast ideas? I think I may have to add a second organizer to my door for plastic bags. And those cutting boards, I still have plans for them too.
