Measurement Conversion Chart

Hey friends.  If you like what you see I would love for you to follow along in my creative adventures on Instagram.  You can also find me pinning away on Pinterest.

Back in 2011 I redid the inside on one of my cabinets to hang all of my measuring cups and spoons and then added in a vinyl measurement conversion chart above that.  Between these two projects I have gotten over 177,000 pins and those two posts continue to be in the top 5 pages visited on my site each month – two and half year later.  So I thought I would revisit it. To this day the cabinet looks exactly the same, and I have not lost one measuring spoon or cup – minor miracle and an organization success in my book..

I showed you how I organized my measuring cups and spoons with cup hooks and paint sticks.  You may have noticed a large, blank space above where I organized them.  While hanging anything else up there would have proven to be a challenge to get down I decided to use that space to have a commonly used conversion table that I constantly use for my baking needs.

In the past I had this little conversion table laminated on my fridge for over a decade.  I thought it would be perfect to take it off my fridge, making it appear a little less cluttered, and take advantage of the primo space in my cabinet.

I just made it in my Silhouette Studio program and then applied the vinyl into the interior of my cabinet door.

I removed the transfer paper and Viola! instant vinyl measurement conversion chart.  Mine measured about 7” tall by 14 1/2” wide.

I contacted my friend Laura at Say it on the Wall and she agreed to design and sell the vinyl for the measurement charts and the cup and spoons vinyl words in her shop for you.

    I am incredibly jealous of your organization & use of space. I’ve been meaning to add this type of chart to my “cookbook” — much simpler (& cleaner!) than coming on the laptop and googling “how many ounces is in 2 cups?!” every time I bake.

    This is sheer brilliance. I love it.

  • http://www.serenitynow4amanda.blogspot.com Amanda @ Serenity Now

    Great use of space. Math was never my strength, so a conversion chart like that is a must in my house! :)

  • Alicen

    I love what you’ve done. so ingenious! My question, though, is about your cabinets themselves. Did you paint them? If so, how did you decide on the color and do you have any pictures of your whole kitchen? I am deciding what color to paint my ugly oak cabinets and need inspiration! Love your blog. :)

  • vanessa

    Great idea! can you tell me, can i do this with my circut machine?

    thanks and God Bless

      if you Cricut lets you design stuff digitally then yes it can. I know for a fact that it can cut out vinyl. But you would have to design it first.

      • Alexandra

        What kind of vinyl did you use / where do you buy it? I have a Cricut (which I have only used for paper), but I think you could make this chart using it.

        • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

          You can buy your vinyl at any craft store or vinyloutlet.net

    So this is pretty much the coolest kitchen organization thingy ever. I can not WAIT to get this bad boy up on my cabinets so I stop swearing when i can’t find the 1/3 cup measurer … again.

    That is really cool! Great visual for kids to help in the kitchen too!

    You’re my kind of girl! Can you come over? :)

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      Sure where do you live ;-)?

  • http://www.thenotsoperfecthousewife.com Mikki

    Oh my. This is one of those ideas where I just sit with my jaw hanging open.. what an ADORABLY smart idea!! Love it!!
    Thanks for getting the labels made. I don’t have one of those fancy machines so that would come in handy!!

    Thanks.. just pinned this on pinterest!!

  • http://oasisaccents.com Andrea

    Absolute genius!! My meas. cups are in a ziploc baggie in the bottom of a corner cupboard. What a great way to fix that! One more thing to add to my project list, lol. Thanks for a great idea!

  • http://onlyfromscratch.blogspot.com Lauren

    This is such a great idea! I can’t stand my utensil drawer at the moment. You’ve got me thinking about how I can do mine better. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • http://www.auntpeaches.com Peaches

    This is so smart! I have a similar table in the back of a cookbook that I’m always flipping to with messing fingers…this is far superior and looks super cool! Thanks fro sharing!!

  • Heidi

    Beckie, this is genius! But I also want to know about your cupboards. I do love the color. (Also, at the risk of sounding teacher-ish, it’s Voilà! instead of Wahla. . . )

  • Teresa

    Love these, Beckie! I just got my Silhouette a few months ago! Can I just buy your Silhouette design? :)

  • http://www.daydreamincolor.com Connie @ Daydream In Color

    Such a great idea. You are soo creative! I’m definitely going to save this idea for when I have a home.

  • Tyree

    you sould tell your friend that’s selling them to inclued a black set for those of us with light cupboards :)

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      She can totally do that for you. Just mention you would like it in black.

  • http://tanyaanurag.blogspot.com/ Tanya Anurag

    I need that conversion chart desperately. I have poor sense of measurement and this is just the perfect thing to have in my kitchen.

  • darlene melvin

    would love to just purchase the silhouette file if you can. Have tons of vinyl and can cut with my Sil SD but time is limited in re-creating what you’ve done beautifully. This is a brilliant idea. I so love it!! thanks for sharing.

  • http://imbusyprocrastinating.com Hollie @ I’m Busy Procrastinating

    Most of us definitely underutilize our cabinet doors. Love what you did with the measuring cups and spoons, although I laughed when you said you had to switch to plastic instead of metal. So true … sometimes the best ideas are thwarted by reality. What I liked most about the labeling you did is that my teenage son, the dishwasher emptier, would have no excuse not to put them where they go. We have 4 different sets of measuring cups and he never seems to put them back in their stacks by size — he just sets them in the drawer willy nilly, which drives me nuts.

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      I had 6 sets missing at least one…seriously. i swear my kids use them in the sandbox.

  • allison

    Love, love, love this idea!! Going to order my decals now.

    Only questions….do they all bang against the cabinet when you open it? Or is there a trick to prevent this?

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      i am using plastic and yes they do bang. But you could add a strip of felt to cushion iit if you wanted.

    Love, love, love! I always have to look up conversions. Guess my “math brain” doesn’t always work in the kitchen.

      I appreciate you looking out for me. I work with Laura. She takes my designs and is able to offer them to my readers because I don’t have the capacity to cut out in bulk like she can. But I do appreciate you looking out for me.

  • Donna Counts

    nevermind I just saw where they gave you credit . Hey must be nice to know your reader are looking out for you lol.

    Hello, is there a way to include 2/3 and 3/4 cups also? My set has both of those as well as the others.
    Thanks!

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      You will have to go to sayitonthewall.com and see if Laura has that option available.

  • Angelia

    Thanks just bought it!!

  • Errant

    I just received my chart from Laura and am going to do this! But I just had an idea and was wondering if I could use magnetic knife holders to eliminate the clanking. My cups and spoons are Cuisipro stainless, so I’m not sure they would stick. Anyone tried this?

    • Tiffany W

      Did you try this, that sounds like a great idea?

  • Jennifer L.

    Hi, I wanted you to know that we recently saw this (actually one of the exact photos, my husband noticed it) in the most recent family handyman magazine, underneath it just says “reader photo” so I wanted to let you know in case you didn’t give permission. I see it’s happened before (comments above).

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      Yes they actually paid me for it. $150! They did give me a link too, I was stoked about it. My first little feature. Thanks for being concerned about my copyrights though.

      • Jennifer L.

        Thanks! I actually just looked back at it and I noticed they had credited you. Derp. Glad you got paid for it!!

    If imitation really is the truest form of flattery, consider yourself flattered. This is a brilliant idea, and I can’t wait to copy it. I have been forming a plan to do a magnetic spice rack on a cabinet door, but couldn’t settle on a tin ( clear window or solid top, screw-on lids vs. lift-off). I think I will put that aside and for now and do this project first. Thanks for the great idea!

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      Absolutely thanks! You can order the stickers if you want.

    Hi, I feel dumb asking this, but I’m not really crafty so I need your advice. I ordered the set recently and on the chart, half the lettering is stuck the paper while the rest is on the vinyl. What do I need to do so the letters transfer to the cabinet? Thank you in advance!

    • BeckieFarrant

      Okay you need it all to be on the transfer tape. So press really hard to get the letters to stick back on the tape part. It helps if you remove the paper at an angle. Then press the sticker where you want it in your cabinet and press it again. I use a credit card to scrape it down. Then remove the tape carefully transferring the letters. I hope that helps.

  • Terri

    Your measuring spoons and cups look great. Can you share where you bought them or what brand(s) they are? I’m looking for some new ones; thanks!

    • http://infarrantlycreative.net Beckie

      Sure, Terri. They are from Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
