Okay, get your mind out of the gutter. I actually meant real drawers like the ones you keep all your junk in. The great thing about drawers is once you shut them you can no longer see the chaos. Well I've been doing just that for a long time now and I just couldn't take it anymore.
I thought about buying storage containers or in drawer shelving but nothing was really "custom" so I opted to create my own custom drawer designed around my stuff.
Here is the before of our "his & hers" drawers. I know it makes me want to cry I can't believe I lived like this! And I can't believe I'm sharing this!
The under the sink before! Avery loves to pretend to put lotion on, here she is sneaking into the cabinet.
Solution. A simple 1 x 4 from the home improvement store.
After removing everything from the drawers and taking inventory on the size and shape of the items we had (and throwing a lot of junk out!) we created customized cubbyholes.
They easily slide in and out of place so you can also adjust them.
I think I'll be able to sleep more peacefully tonight knowing exactly where all my stuff is!
I put Jeff's things back in while he was at work so I'm sure he'll have something to say about where I put all his stuff...you know how guys get when you move things around on them!
I decided to move all my hair supplies and products under the sink...the hair dryer was always in the way before. I may look for a decorative basket for under there but for know an unused box works just fine!
So there you have it a simple way to customize any of your drawers. Anyone else do something similar or have other cool ideas?
On a decorating note I think I'm going to paint the bathroom cabinets this winter to match the bead-boarding we have in there. The drawers are in desperate need of some hardware too!
