Cupboard Door Organizer

We’ve made it a goal around our house to create usable space from what might seem like unusable space. For instance, check out the inside of our newly painted office desk cabinet. We created a cupboard door organizer by covering a bulletin board with a neutral fabric. This opens up space to tack up reminders and inspirations. On the lower section of the door, we adhered a dry erase board for quick notes or for homework problems. We love this convenient space!

Keep Paint Brushes and Rollers Fresh
