Completely Pinteresting: Kitchen Knife Organizer

With very little counter space, I’m always on the search for any ways to get things out of the way.  I pinned this DIY from Design Sponge and have been staring at it for weeks now.  I ended up getting a magnetic strip, instead of using the hidden magnets, but I still wanted to spruce it up a bit.  After a few trips to our local architectural salvage shop, The Heritage Company, I got a few pieces that were the right width, and opted to nail them each to the wall.

Dan, my ever-so-useful-and-charming husband, cut them to size, drilled the holes and nailed them to the wall.  So really, I was more of an art director of the project.

After some stress as we were planning things out (I BLAME THE HEAT!), I’m happy.  There’s an illusion that it’s one piece, and it gets the job done.  No more knife rack stealing counter space, and my wall is that much happier too.

    It looks incredible. I have to say I enjoy it a lot more than just a single magnetic strip on the wall. It really helps pull everything together and make things look more stable. Nice work! :)
