A few weeks ago I organized a few of my kitchen cabinets but didn’t have time to get to this, most visible one.
It doesn’t look so bad from the outside but this is the cabinet that I stick all those little things in…receipts I want to save but haven’t had a chance to file away, box tops, needle and thread, tweezers…you get the idea. I needed to get it all sorted and put away.
Once that was done, I emptied out the cabinet and was inspired to try a little something I’ve seen on blogland. Remodelaholic had lined a hutch with wrapping paper to add color and design. I really liked the look but was unable to find any wrapping paper that I liked. I tried to find some scrapbook paper to try in there but no success there either.
Then the thought came to mind to use some leftover material from my kitchen awnings and canisters. Yes, the material is a wee bit different because I mistakenly bought this when I bought the other material for the awnings and I couldn’t return it. It’s been nice to have! I had just enough material left and didn’t have to spend a penny.
I measured and cut the pieces of material to fit and then used spray adhesive to attach them to the back of the cabinet.
After I got the material in, I decided to add some more decorative pieces to this cabinet. Then I tried to decide if I should leave the door on…
Or take it off…
I took it off. I like it this way…what do you think??
Another little, simple project was this frame.
I just cut a piece of material to fit in the frame and then used a dry erase marker to write on the outside glass.
I can change up the word or write a new phrase by just erasing and starting again. I got this idea from this neat menu board over at Joyful Homemaking.
This is the cabinet’s finished look. I love the change…it was simple, free, and now it’s organized too!
