Measuring cups and spoons belong in that genre of little kitchen things that never seem to be around when you want them. In addition to that missing supply of tupperware lids, it is near impossible to keep track of your entire set of measuring tools. Even in the event that you’ve got them connected, you have to unhook them at some stage for cleaning and it’s all downhill from that point.
Beckie Farrant of Infarrantly Creative had exactly the exact same problem and was tired of lugging around in her kitchen drawers for her measuring cups simply to find the one she desired was missing. Inspired by some photographs on the internet, she installed this organizational strategy onto the inside of one of her cupboard doors.
The insides of cupboard doors are valuable surfaces that frequently go underused. They are fantastic places to install spice racks, hooks and other organizational tools.
Farrant utilized paint sticks as the foundation for her hooks since they were just the right size, and they are free. Just go to your hardware store and request a few paint sticks. They’ll be happy to give you a few. If you’ve got a narrow cabinet door, then look at getting several paint sticks so you can add more rows to hold all of your measuring cups and spoons.
Farrant cut, sanded, primed, and painted every rod in a bold red, then screwed them to pre-marked spots on her cupboard door. Before drilling, she carefully quantified where every rod would need to be therefore her cupboard door could still shut.
After screwing in a couple of cup hooks in the hardware store, Farrant got even more organized and bought vinyl ribbon to mark where every cup and spoon belongs. It looks good and makes it effortless to catch the right cup with only a quick glance. She also included a measurement conversion chart for spur-of-the-moment recipe conversions.
Side notice from Farrant: While she loves her metal measuring cups, they did make a clanging sound when she opened and closed the cupboard door. So following a day, she switched to a plastic set.
