Arent they cute with the fun colors?! I bought the cups and the tablespoons to replace my old mismatched ugly white plastic ones. Back to the pin which you can see a picture of below. Truth be told this was one of the first pins so I never visited the site I just saw the picture and knew I could do it, but she has a good tutorial on her site which is a little different from how I did it. Oh her site there is a link to buy the vinyl labels you see and a conversion chart so if your interested in that check out her site for the details on that.
On to the project. Here is my cabinet door before...make sure you measure your cabinet door because Im not sure cabinets are universally the same.
You can see here that the cabinet door is thicker on the outside than on the inside and this really is a good thing because you dont want the screw coming through the cabinet door that would be ugly. For the wood pieces use whatever you have around the house and cut it to make it fit. We had scrap thin ply-wood sitting around that was perfect for this.
Here are both of the wood pieces with the hooks in them. The hooks are so easy to install, just measure where you want them to be placed (remembering that the measuring cups are larger as they go so make sure your spacing is wide enough to compensate for that) mark your spot and screw the hooks into the board. Easy peasy. To make for easier hanging joe bent the hooks so there was a wider opening.
Above is the back shot of the wood piece (messy paint on the back is no problem since you wont see it yay). You can see here tha Joe made the indention so that the wood would sit flat on the whole door and not have a gab where the cabinet door was thinner from the cabinet door frame. Such a smart man. You can skip this step if you want but it wasnt too hard to do and a flush fit is always better to a gap fit.
Before you screw the boards in make sure they are level and mark your spots on the cabinet and the wood piece. Make holes in the wood piece before you start screwing into the door because then you take the risk of pushing too hard to get through the door and wood and going all the way through the door so be careful.
Wood pieces in place, measuring cups in place...but something is missing...THATS RIGHT I have cool printables (link here) that I laminated!!
Thats another thing off the to-do list!! Now if we could just get that yard sign finished Im dying to see that go in the front yard! What projects are you dying to finish but are having a hard time finding the motivation?
