In our Kitchen remodel a few years ago, we were able to convert several of the cabinets to drawers. While I think drawers are a more efficient use of space than cabinets, they are easy victims for accumulating junk. It's just so easy to toss in any random object, then quickly close the drawer and ignore what's happening inside. Hence the term junk drawer!

One of the many places freed up after creating a Craft Closet, are these Kitchen drawers. Along with junk, they used to hold many of my random craft supplies...but were left mostly empty. Yay for more storage space!

I connected with my inner-Liberace, and painted the mesh drawer organizers gold, then whipped these two drawers into shape! One drawer is kid-friendly, with everyday stuff they need for homework and projects, and the other holds the more grown-up items.

Double-decker organizers (I used these) are perfect for using every bit of vertical space in a drawer.
