Let's go - step by step
You need: pencil, tape measure, MDF board, glued laminated timber
Cut the MDF board and glued laminate timber to size, we suggest getting this done at your local DIY store. Next mark on the MDF board where you want to fit the shelf, make sure to leave enough space to write your weekly shopping list. Then mark three drill holes on the marked line – two of which are 5cm from the edge and one in the middle. Then make two more marks at the mid point between each of the marked drill holes for the wooden dowels. You will transfer these marks afterwards onto the glued laminated timber.
Drilling the holes
You need: Hammer drill
Now drill the holes for the two wooden dowels on the MDF board and the glued laminated timber using a cordless hammer drill. Choose a drill bit 1-2mm smaller than the dowel size. Make sure not to drill through the board so that the dowel sits right.
Painting the wall board
You need: paint brush, chalkboard paint
Next using a matching holesaw attachement, saw the hole for a herb plant pot into the board that will form the shelf. Then before you attach the shelf to the wall board, apply chalkboard paint to the wall board and leave it to dry.
Fitting the shelf
Insert the wooden dowels with a bit of glue into the pre-drilled holes in the shelf, also apply wood glue to the edge and then insert everything into the matching dowel holes on the wall board. Afterwards, fix the shelf from the back side of the wall board using three wood screws. You can get your bearings for this using the small drill holes made in step 1. Then in the lower part of the wall board screw in three wall hooks so you can hang shoppig bags and aprons for example.
Fixing the cork surface
You need: Cordless glue gun
Now using a hot glue gun attach the cork surface for the pinboard onto the wall board. Then fit the finished wall organiser onto the wall using wall plugs and screws. Your kitchen organiser is now complete.
