DIY Balsa Wood Drawer Organizer

Home makeovers 04.26.15
Do you have a junk drawer in your kitchen that is driving you nuts. Me too. Fix it with balsa wood and a tiny saw. You can make your drawer perfectly fit your stuff. For example, make long compartments for lighters and flashlights or tiny ones for rubber bands and matches.
