Deflecto in the Kitchen

Deflecto in the Kitchen…organizing the dreaded kitchen cabinet.

In an effort to tame the chaos (in my mind) during the holidays,

I like to find small problem areas around the house that I can work on a one at a time.

My kitchen cabinet next to my stove was one of those problems.

This is embarrassing to show.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has a cabinet like this one.

It’s probably the most used cabinet in the kitchen and it showed.

With the help from my friends at Deflecto.  (design team perks)

I got the kitchen cabinet project started.

I asked Deflecto to send me several of the medium caddy compartments*

from the Stackable Caddy Organizer*  (yes, you can buy just the compartments)

The medium caddy compartments* were the perfect length to fit inside my cabinet.

FYI…there are three sizes of compartments that fit into the stacking caddy organizer.

The first thing I did was to completely empty the cabinet and wipe it down.

I tossed all the outdated spices and discarded old medicines.

I put like items together for easy grab and go.

I removed the lids from a couple of the clear compartments to use with taller items.  

I love that the compartments are stackable.   That helps eliminates wasted cabinet space.

These really do come in handy when cooking.

Take it a step further in your organizing by labeling all the bins.

The finished kitchen cabinet all clean and tidy.

It’s been a few weeks since I reorganized the cabinet and thanks to my new organizing

compartments it still looks great.

Here’s a short video I made on the Deflecto Stacking Caddy Organizer*.

You can find the Deflecto Stacking Caddy Organizer* on Amazon or ask for it

at your local craft store.

Personalizing My Ikea Finds for the Kitchen…

Personalizing My IKEA finds for the kitchen…

When you live 3 hours in any direction from the nearest IKEA,  you make your husband

stop anytime you’re close.

Since I didn’t have advance notice to prepare and my husband only has the patience to

go around once.  I just grabbed without real purpose.

I really wish I would have bought more, a return trip is needed.

Here are the plain Ikea finds before being personalized!

This summer, we’ve been working on updating our kitchen.

It’s been a slow process.

Recently we had a kitchen sink dilemma…which halted choosing a backsplash tile.

For a distraction…a couple cute little DIY projects were in order.

A “Rae Dunn” inspired planter.

I love working with vinyl.  For my “Rae Dunn” inspired planter,

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3* to create the words “be happy” out of

Matte Black Removable Adhesive Vinyl* from StyletechCraft.      (*affiliate link)

I simply applied the words onto my planter using Vinyl Transfer Tape*.

So easy to do.

Removable vinyl makes it easy to change out my words with the seasons.

Did you know that this vinyl will remove cleanly for up to two years?

This vinyl film is great for decorating a kid’s room, a classroom or just about

anywhere you just need a temporary graphic.

And, with 27 colors available, it’s not hard to find the perfect color

for whatever you can dream up!

I have dish soap issues.

I like to keep it handy, but, hate the way the regular sized

plastic bottle looks on the counter.

I usually buy the smaller bottles.  (just slightly better)

Solution… I picked up the cute soap dispenser during my last trip to IKEA

and also personalized it with the Silhouette Cameo 3*.

This time I created a small label using Matte Black Removable Adhesive Vinyl*  

and words using Matte White Removable Adhesive Vinyl*.

It looks so much better than plastic soap bottles.

Fingers crossed, I’ll be sharing the kitchen project soon!
