Make a rustic kitchen organizer for your home with a few supplies. These DIY kitchen ideas are perfect for a small kitchen where you need extra storage on the wall. They also fit in great with a farmhouse style decor.
You will need to start by gluing the box to the bread board. I find it best to spread wood glue over the entire surface with a paint brush. This will ensure complete coverage.
Put the surface with the glue face down on the bread board and ensure everything is placed correctly. Use something heavy to weigh it down and allow to dry completely. NOTE: Wipe away any excess glue that may squeeze out with a wet paper towel.
Once dry, you can now paint your rustic kitchen organizer. I wanted that rustic farmhouse appearance so I used a dry brush technique. Add just a little bit of paint to your brush them remove most of it on a piece of paper. Move this dry paint brush across your surface with the direction of the wood grain. You will get a rustic finish in minutes with portions of the surface that are left unpainted.
Allow the paint to dry completely. You can see more of the rustic finish below to see what you are going for with the paint technique. If you don’t want this project to be quite as rustic, just paint as normal. NOTE: Be sure to paint the edges of the bread board as well, as you can see these when hanging on the wall.
These DIY kitchen ideas are great because you can add a variety of items to the box for organizing. Think of things you want to be handy but need to get off of your counter. This organizer actually makes a great holder for utensils.
Or you may just need two to complete the look! Either way, be sure to pick up the supplies to make your own rustic kitchen organizer.
