Hi, I'm Christene from the blog Keys to Inspiration. My blog is all about helping you discover creative, simple, and affordable ways to design a home you love!Today I want to share my latest home DIY project - our custom wooden drawer organizers. One of my passions is DIYing things for our home and teaching others how to DIY too! Even if you don't think you're a DIY person, I can show you how easy it is to create amazing things for your home on a budget.Custom drawer organizers for you home can be extremely expensive. I've wanted to get some of our kitchen drawers organized for a while now, but I was never comfortable paying the crazy prices for some of those really nice organizers. The solution -- DIY ones ourselves! Let me show you how to make these amazing organizers using just a few materials.
Common kitchen cabinets can only hold so much space, and it can be all too easy to over-stock your shelves with those ambitious trips to the grocery store. So, when it comes to home kitchen customization, I’m all about maximizing the storage potential of those smaller spaces that often go by unnoticed. One frequent example of these often-underused areas are the narrow absent spaces that are created by the distance between a refrigerator and whatever it rests beside—whether it be a counter-top, dishwasher, cabinet box, an ending wall, etc.
I wanted to do something different for the holidays. So, I put my thinking cap on and came up with this beauty. I think everyone can enjoy this fun Christmas project a North Pole sign. I'm not sure if I'll us this outside for my porch or inside.. most likely outside. I also thought this would be great for hanging our stockings since we don't have a fireplace. I hope you're as excited as me to make this!
The Holiday decorating season is approaching rapidly and here at Gilbert Marketplace, we are so excited! Today I'll be using some scrap wood I have around to make these beautiful snowmen. Think: recycled wood, and farmhouse style holiday decor. It's my favorite and I'm sharing lots of projects this month- if you're feeling crafty and want to make some gifts follow me!
I haven't posted in a little while and I'm excited to show my latest project! We recently switched bedrooms for our daughter Olivia from upstairs to our first floor second bedroom and Olivia wanted a new theme ( you can see some of her first bedroom makeover that I did in my projects). This time she wanted an " enchanted forest" which is my favorite because I really love trees..
Being an Organizing Consultant - (help individuals and businesses design systems and processes using organizing principles and transferring skills) has required me to purchase a lot of products for myself and my clients. A lot of times these products tend to be high in price and not needed. Because everything DIY is in my blood, I wanted to make simple containers/bins/organizers that anyone at any level of creativity could create.
This is a fun little project that is helping me go green and pinch some pennies in the New Year!Have you heard of beeswax food wraps? I feel like I am seeing them pop up in all sorts of trendy stores, in both kitchen and gift stores. They are so cute, fun patterns and the heavenly scent of beeswax. I was easily converted into a fan!However, the trendy prices were simply not something I could swallow. So, in true Zest fashion, I decided to DIY my own cute wraps for my kitchen.

POST CHALLENGE SOMETHING FOR THE KITCHEN I did this Project because my shopping bags tend to get unruly. And sometimes I have way too many of them. So I thought this container would be nice looking for keeping them stored in and out of sight. And I had a few of these plastic containers already in the house. So I bought some paint and got busy making this storage container.
If there’s anything more unappealing on your kitchen countertop it has to be messy kitchen appliance cords. If you are looking for an expensive and easy solution to neatly organize your kitchen appliance cords, then you are going to love this just as much as I do. Messy kitchen appliance cords can be so distracting when organizing your kitchen. It seems regardless of what you do to hide them, they are always rearing their ugly heads and poking out to reveal their messiness.In the past, I used rubber bands to gather them up neatly and stuff them behind the appliance – then I discovered Command Cord Bundlers Cord Organizers ($4.85 for a 2 Pack) – needless to say, I was thrilled.
Do you have any unused vertical space in your kitchen? Don't you hate it when you have something that you keep losing track of because it doesn't have a proper home?

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 .
Tired of no place or how to store your cookie sheets, cooling racks and muffin pans? This organizing hack is so easy, you'll wonder why you never thought of it before!
It's totally tiny but does a fine job suiting our needs...mostly... One problem I've run into with a small space is storage space. I've had to get a little creative and maximize the empty space hiding in the room since we're lacking a pantry. However, our kitchen had about a 6" opening between our wall and the refrigerator. I decided I needed to utilize this hidden space and that's exactly what I did!
For those concerned about heat, the side of my refrigerator does not get warm/hot at all. I have had this since May and it has been a dream come true in my kitchen!
