Counter Top Utensil Organizer! -I know, super cool name right:)
First find some sort of plastic box. I found these clear, plastic, bins at our thrift store (DI) and picked up 3.
They have these little separators in them which works out perfect to keep everything a little more up-right since my boxes are shorter and wider...versus taller and skinnier.
And they were just .50 each! Yippee!
Next paint them whatever color you want!! I gave mine a nice coat of white spray paint (after first spraying on a plastic primer).
I wanted to "cute" them up a bit so I dug out some green polka dotty fabric and first cut strips the size of the perimeter of the box's and about 2 inches wide. I then folded it in half and put a drip of hot glue every couple inches or so down the length of the fabric to close it. (looking back it would have been MUCH simpler to just sew a straight 1/4 inch seam than glue it-oh well)
Then I hot glued the folded fabric around each box like so...
I liked the way that looked but I thought it would add a nice touch to tie a simple strand of jute around the fabric and end it with a bow!
Next, add a few utensilish words to the outside of your boxes. I LOVE me some some labels! (mine is black vinyl cut from my cricut, but you could use stickers as well)
And ta-da! You've got a totally unique, totally adorable set of utensil organizers!
Now fill those beauties up with all your thing-a-ma-gigs and smile down upon the Sweet Love you just gave your kitchen!
Up next...fun subway art for the kitchen!!!
