All my Cups in a Row

In our last house, I hung my measuring cups/spoons in my cupboard on cup hooks, but the cabinets were thick wood and the cup hooks screwed in just fine.  But in this house, our cupboard doors are very thin.

I saw this at Infarrantly Creative a few weeks back...

A friend of mine saw the above photo on Pinterest, and it inspired her to do her own.  This time instead of using a paint stirrer, she found wood strips at the local craft store.

So, when I was at Hobby Lobby, I also found the wood strips (about $2 for 3').  I painted them black and screwed them into my baking cupboard doors.  Here's the result:

Ignore the cupboard itself... still have a little rearranging to do inside.  Just look at the doors!

The measuring cups on the right.

The measuring spoons on the left.  I bought all new ones... top brand names according to Cooks Illustrated.  Pretty, huh?  Of course the way these are made, I needed to put the super-humongous cup hooks on them.  But actually that works well, they "clang" less against the door now.

I am thinking of lining the inside with felt to lessen the noise, but actually it's not terribly bad.  We'll see if I get around to it!  LOL

Ahhh.... one more organizing project done.  Whew!
