DIY: Cabinet Door Memo Board

Written on August 22, 2012 at 1:00 pm , by

I love an easy do-it-yourself project, especially one everyone can do!  This project provides hidden organization inside a cabinet in your kitchen, mudroom, or office, and you can customize it with your favorite fabric for a fun pop of color like this cheerful Ikat inside a computer armoire I recently painted.

Supplies you will need:  cork tiles from an office supply store; cotton fabric of choice; box cutter or X-acto knife; stapler; multipurpose glue for securing different surfaces; push pins.

1.  Remove the cabinet door so you can work with it laying flat on a table, and determine the desired width of your fabric covered memo board.  If you have an inset on the back of your cabinet, it helps to work with that dimension, if not, simply pick a point an inch or two away from the edges so the new memo board won’t interfere with proper closing of the cabinet.   Carefully trim tiles with a box cutter or X-acto knife to your desired width.
