First, a sad "before" photo. This is a snapshot of the messy "before" inside my kitchen drawer. I had all of this random stuff but no where for any of it to "live." Sad sad sad. I decided to make a home for everything so that everything had it's own place.

Supplies: I found this wooden tray on sale at Michaels. I also used DecoArt Chalkboard Paint and a chalk pencil.

First I gave the tray a few coats of paint.

Then I figured out what should go where and labeled each space with the chalk pencil.

    Great idea ! I wish I didn't have so much stuff in my drawers. Is there any way to purchase those spreaders? I've never seen anything like them...

    What are the dimensions of your drawer?

    Does the chalk come off as the utensils move within the drawer? I would be blessed to have less in my drawers...

    Sorry, but that drawer wasn't messy. I could show you mine! Those knives are adorable. Where did you get them?
