Finding the right measuring cups and spoons in “the drawer” has become the bane of my existence, so I decided to do something about it and come up with some great measuring cup organization. This idea is ALL OVER Pinterest and it was pretty easy to recreate.
The Surprise Find
The one thing… I didn’t want to have to free-hand or stencil all of the measurements, and especially the conversion chart. So guess where I found these vinyl decals? Give up?
The decals took a second to figure out how to work, but once I did, I was rocking. I used one of those… ugh… what do you call them… flat plastic thingies for smoothing out icing on a cake… to make the decals stick and it worked like a charm.
I used both cabinet doors in the kitchen island to hold the conversion charts and measuring cups and spoons. Easy to find and easy to reach.
I took 2 paint sticks, and spray painted them blue to match the decals. Next, I used 2 strips of Scotch double-sided mounting tape on each stick and attached small cup holder hooks.
The reason I doubled up on the tape was so the screw backs of the hooks didn’t go through the door, and the second layer of mounting tape gave it just enough depth.
I think visually, it would have been better to have the smaller measuring spoons at the top and the measuring cups on the bottom, but I use the measuring cups more, and function trumped design this time around.
Ahhhh… isn’t this the most beautiful thing to see…. organized and lined up and easy to find. Life is good, eh?
