Cabinet Cork Board

I love this project, and so much do I wish I could take credit for it, but alas it comes from those Young House Love Kids (I say "kids" lovingly,  they are both older then I am). They did a larger version of this Cabinet Cork board two years ago, I loved the idea so much, but I couldn't think of a cabinet I could fit full 12" X 12" cork tiles on to. So I filed the idea under "To do in another house" that was until I was at Michaels Craft Store with my 40% off coupon and saw these little cork tiles.
 They were the perfect size to fit on the tiny door to our container cupboard. It was also perfect because the cabinet door opens so that I can see it perfectly from my prep space. We now use the tiny cork tiles to hold recipes I've cut out from magazines and a couple favorite go to recipes from my mom.
Total project cost $6.00 (with one extra cork tile).


  1. That's a great idea and I love the way you adapted it and made it work for you! xx

  2. You really know how to utilize every square inch of your darling space.

  3. Hope you don't mind I grabbed your button for my sidebar. I love your blog.

  4. I did that project too..compliments of YHL...The only thing is the tiles I bought were a little on the thin side so I ended up having to wire snip the thumbtacks to fit! Looks great!

  5. I love all things organized!!! Looks Fab.

  6. thats wonderful! how did u secure the cork tiles to the cabinet doors?

  7. I LOVE your blog! I recently started a blog of my own! I featured your kitchen organizing on a post today! Hope you don't mind! Thanks for all the organizing tips!
