Look! Magnetic Tool Storage

Look! Magnetic Tool Storage

Last week, we posted about the magnetic knife rack for the fridge. Over the weekend, I went to get started on the project, but we didn't have enough craft magnets…so we repurposed it into tool storage instead.

If you recall, our new kitchen is tiled, so there was no way to install our old knife rack. I had an idea to glue craft magnets to the back and stick it to the fridge, which I found on Ikeahacker. However, it turned out we didn't have enough magnets, and some readers pointed out, we were a little concerned that they might not be strong enough.

Our craft cabinet was a mess (we had trouble even finding the magnets), so we came up with this idea instead.

We installed it on the back of the cabinet door to hold tools. Now, we can easily locate scissors, pliers, and yes, magnets! With the extra space, the cabinet is more organized, and I was glad we were able to repurpose it instead of throwing it away.
