Hi there!

The weekend before last I had a big cooking day at my place. Three girlfriends I hadn't seen in a while were visiting and we decided to rustle up a delicious three-course menu together. The food was fantastic and the evening almost perfect, if only it hadn't been for …. my kitchen! With every free space crammed full of utensils, pots, plates, herbs and spices and other gadgets, the four of us were forever getting in each other's way.

Enough was enough! I had to think up a way of creating more space and storing my stuff as attractively, practically and inexpensively as possible. And that's how I ended up making my own kitchen organiser.





I got hold of a chipboard panel and ordered a beautiful floral photomural on fototapete.de. Then I went to that famous Swedish furniture store and bought two metal flowerpots, a shelf and knobs, all in stylish shades of cream. After pasting the wallpaper to the board according to the instructions, I attached all the other objects to my new floral board.

I was amazed how much storage space my new kitchen utensil creates, not to mention how great it looks on the wall! Needless to say, me and my girlfriends have already set a date for our next cooking bonanza!





  • Chipboard
  • Photomural
  • Wallpaper paste
  • Brush
  • Shelf
  • Knobs
  • Flowerpots


How it's made

Wipe down the chipboard with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt. Paste the wallpaper to the board according to the instructions. Once the wallpaper sticks to the board after the recommended time, fix the storage elements anywhere on the board using the battery-operated screwdriver.
