KITCHEN CABINET LABELS

Kitchen Cabinet Labels - made from wooden craft sticks
 
These are labels for the cabinets for our beach cottage.  Is this over the top?  . . . perhaps.  I'm not going to deny I'm OCD.  As a matter of fact - I'm quite proud of it :o).  Here is how I see it - with different people using the kitchen (ourselves, friends, family) it helps keep track of everything and it makes things easier to find (especially within the two lazy-susans in the corners, and the other lower cabinets).  You know where to put things away, and no need go hunting for things since they will always be in the same place - easy-peasy.

These labels are made from wooden craft sticks.  I painted them a pale aqua to go with other accents already in the room. Then I wrote on them with a Sharpee permanent marker.  Finally, I did a quick coat of Satin Polyurethane for durability.

They are applied to the cabinets with 3M poster strips (the kind that can be removed if necessary so no worry about damage to the cabinets).  Hint - cut the 3M strips in half long ways and they will go further.  I used one strip per label - one half on each end.



 They have worked out well so far, and everything is kept neat and orderly :o)
