There are so many great ways to organize your kitchen by using items that you already own. Not only do you save money, but you can be proud of the practical things you created out of objects that most people would throw out. The kitchen is usually the business room in a house, making it necessary for it to be organized. Here are a few ways to organize your kitchen with upcycling.
- Old Shutter Menu
- Old Furniture Island
- Rake Hanger
- Glass Jar Canister
- File Holder Organizer
Do you ever sit down to make your dinner menu for the week and by the time dinner comes around you forgot what you were supposed to make? This old shutter menu will solve your problem. By using an old shutter, painting it, and attaching a chalkboard to it, you can have your weekly menu hanging on the wall. You could even attach hooks to the bottom of it to hold pot holders or aprons.
Don’t have an island in your kitchen? Now you can. Turn an old dresser or desk into a kitchen island by painting it and adding a wooden top to it. You’ll have drawers for extra storage and you can move it wherever it needs to go.
This is an easy one you can complete in an afternoon. Use the head of an old rake as a kitchen utensils hanger. It can be used to hang up your big spoons, whisks, and spatulas. It goes well in a country kitchen or a cottage kitchen design.
You know those glass jar canisters used to store food that cost a fortune? Well, you can make them with an old salsa jar, a drawer knob, paint, and a hot glue gun. Simply soak the jar in hot water and soap to get all the paper off, paint the lid, and attach the drawer knob to the top of the lid with the hot glue gun. You can fill them with coffee, sugar, flour, etc and display them on your counter, making space in your pantry.
File holders can be used to hold your saran wrap, foil, wax paper, vegetables, and cans of food. Who knew file holders could be used for so much? They hold much more than just files. Just set it on the counter or attach to the inside of a cabinet door and it’s done. Moving these items over to the file holder will open up almost an entire drawer and a lot of pantry space.
