Kitchen Organization – Measuring Cups
I have finally completed a project that I have wanted to do for two years!
I knew I wanted to do this project when I saw my friend Beckie from Infarrantly Creative do hers. Her’s is much nicer, but I like the way mine turned out. It works for me! :) Click HERE to see Beckie’s project.
Before I completed this project, I had been storing my measuring cups in a plastic container in my Lazy Susan.
And the cabinet to the left of my stove and microwave looked like this…
This is the perfect spot for me to hang my measuring cups because it is right by my stove. So I went to Lowes and bought a 3/8 inch thick and 3 inch wide piece of wood.
I cut it the length I needed with my Dremel Saw Max (awesome tool!)
Then I put some Gorilla glue on the back of the board and put it on my cabinet door.
I had to make sure it was level.
Then I just taped it in place to dry.
Then I painted the inside of the cabinet door black with Chalkboard paint from Lowes, and added these hooks…
I couldn’t find my 1/2 measuring cup, so I had to use two of the same for my picture. :)
I found this cute little Measurement Conversion chart online at Sugar and Charm. Click HERE to download it.
I put it in a frame and then added Gorilla glue to the frame so it would stick to the door.
I reorganized my shelves and put my measuring cups and mixing bowls in this cabinet for easy reach. Soooooo much better!
Now it is YOUR turn!!
Have you been organizing anything in your kitchen this week?
I sure hope so! I can’t wait to see it!
I will have a linky party tomorrow, and I would love for you to link
up any of your kitchen organization posts.
If you do not have a blog, you can send me the pictures via email
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or send them to me on facebook.

I absolutely love this idea. Between us, I think yours is better. ;) This is totally going on my to do list. Thanks for sharing! Julie
Another item (or 5) out of the drawer is a definite plus for me. In addition my husband won’t have to ask me (again) where the measuring cups, spoons are. I like it. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music
That looks awesome Traci. You are going to love it!
Although I love the organizational thought behind this I had to finally take mine down because the clanking of my metal measuring cups against the cabinet door was too much noise for me.
Love this idea so I’m going to use command strip hooks will have to forego the chalkboard paint because I live in an apartment.
I think that would work great, Kathy!
