When I saw the cabinet door organizer idea on Better Homes & Gardens I put it on my to do list so that my hair dryer would have a dedicated home. This project actually was done in 2012, in my old house, however spring cleaning is in the air and I thought this project would be helpful for some of you. Having a dedicated spot for the products you use the most is super helpful. This was a sponsored post for 3M so I have a video to show you how to do it and every thing.
1” x 4” x 4’ piece of pine wood
corner braces or mending plates
1. To determine how wide your cuts should be measure your cabinet stile width making sure there is enough clearance for it to shut with the door organizer in place. In my vanity I had to install it in the door insets in order for it to close properly. I measured the length of the inset which was 13 3/4” so that became my front piece. Then you subtract 1 1/2” from that number to get your bottom cut, so mine was 12 1/4”. Then the two sides are 7”. Cut your 4 – 1” x 4” pieces to those sizes.
2. To make the slanted sides (I didn’t make the fancy cut like BHG) I measured up from the bottom 3 1/2” and then 1” in. I use a straight edge to make that line and then I clamped my wood in place and cut it out with my jigsaw.
3. Then using wood glue and my air nailer I nailed everything in place according to Justin’s directions.
4. Then I spray primed and painted sanding in between with a 320 grit 3M Sandblaster pad.
5. Then I marked and predrilled my holes for the corner braces and attached the door organizer in place. I had to use corner braces instead of the mending plates that Justin suggested because of the way I had to hang mine.
6. For added storage I added an adhesive magnet strip to the front for my bobby pins.
