IKEA Boards | Part 1001

Pin It

I know I have written what seems like 1001 posts on how to reuse leftover cabinet doors from IKEA.  I would go as far as to say I am addicted.  I can't get over the thrill of taking a piece of throwaway material for a few dollars and turning it into something I love.  I love the cheap thrill of recreating something useless into something I can't buy in a store.

So please indulge me once again as I introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. IKEA doors with an interesting ridge on the top.


As soon as I saw them, I instantly thought those ridges would e perfect for holding pens, or pencils.

Then I made these whiteboards.  There was a space that needed to be filled and no place to put a dry erase marker.  The smaller of these boards was perfect.





See that cutout?


Perfect.

I made little "pockets" out of leftover fabric from my kitchen sprucing up and pocket organizer projects.  (I did a video tutorial on these that will be up soon!)  They hold markers and pens and receipts and things I find on the floor that shouldn't be around babies.  The buttons are decorative...they make me smile and they tie into the whiteboards.

If you have been following, you've seen this beautiful fabric on the pantry doors and now on these pocket organizers, but I promised you more than that.  Don't fret, there is more to come tomorrow!
