Look! Cork Cabinet Siding

Look! Cork Cabinet Siding

Last week we purchased some cork panels from McMaster-Carr. The task: after rearranging our freestanding IKEA kitchen cabinets, the sizing and originally-intended use and look of things needed some adjustment...

Placing our not-so deep cabinet alongside our extra deep countertops meant we had excess space between the cabinet and wall. We also now wanted to be able to use the side of the cabinet, so we decided to cover it with cork. Using a liquid adhesive, we cut the cork to size to cover the entire cabinet side, reaching all the way back to the wall.

Now, we use the cork to house our food scale, and have lots of push pins for notes, recipes, coupons, etc. We're loving this switch up!
