Quick and Easy Utensil Holder

89,868 Views
Last month, I teamed up with 5 other bloggers for a quick DIY challenge. We had to make something along the themes of 'organization' in just under 10 mins! I decided to make a kitchen utensil holder from scrap wood and plumbing clips! Here is a picture of how I stored my current utensils .
I dont have many cooking utensils as you can see..... I'm sure im in the minority for that.
[On a side note speaking of organizing, I also have a great post on how to DECLUTTER KITCHEN COUNTERS - CLICK HERE TO SEE IT
Anyway heres how I made my utensil rack.
MATERIALS USED
Wood
Plumbing pipe clips.
Clear polyurethane if you are sealing your wood.
Screw driver
Small Picture hanging screws
Pencil
Measuring tape/ruler
HOW TO:
I spray painted the copper clips to black!’m not a huge fan of copper decor, but hey each to their own. If you dig the look, leave them as they are by all means!
Next was figuring out where to place the plumbing clips. I used a ruler to measure out equal gaps, marking it all with a pencil and then screwed in place
Here is how it looked with the plumbing clips all in place. Notice I used the larger clips to the left and the smaller ones to the right.
All that was needed was to attach it to the tile in my kitchen!
I found a great product that allowed me to attach the rack to the wall without causing any damage at all (I rent) - see my blog link below for all the details on this!
Here is my beauty shot! What do you think? Will you be trying this?

In other news, I am also designing and organizing my desk space, and here is a DIY BULLETIN BOARD, I made from an old window - click here to see it!

    Great idea!! A spaghetti fork is a pain, a pair of tongs? I keep ALL my wooden spoons in their own crock. My knives are in the block and other knives in a knife drawer. A lot of utensils and they all need a home. Thank you!! This would be good for my 3 whisks also. Large spoons and spatula's don't get tangled. My drawer would be easy access with this idea. ;))
