Wood Kitchen Conversion

3 Materials
Do you struggle in the kitchen with converting measurements? Do you find yourself spending WAY TOO MUCH TIME with Chef Google figuring out how to cut measurements in half or quarters?
Then I have the perfect solution for you!
This is what I started out with...a magnet from the dollar spot at Target. Although it did the job it just didn't fit in with my decor.
This is what I made to replace it!
I am going to show you how to make a Wood Kitchen Conversion that is not only super resourceful, but it is so cute and easy to make.

You will need 1 - 1 x 8 board cut to 5 1/2 inches. If you don't own a saw make sure to have your cuts done at the hardware store.

*This is a great example of what you could make from a scrap piece of wood. More great reasons to save all those scraps.

Once you have your cuts, then sand, and stain the wood piece.
I then sanded the wood one last time to give it a rustic look. Making sure to focus on the edges.

Here is a close up of what the edges look like sanded.
Next I printed, cut and applied the printable with spray adhesive.
I allowed the glue to to dry and applied several coats of a spray sealer.

Finally I drilled a small hole, then hammered in an upholstery nail in each corner and hung it with a command hook on my refrigerator.
This makes a great gift and it really helps out in the kitchen. It will become your new favorite kitchen tool!
