Vintage Drainer Becomes Under Sink Organizer


I bought this vintage dish drainer and have been trying to find a good spot for it. Previously I had it here.

It just was not working out there as I really need the counter in my service porch to remain uncluttered. So I thought how about under the kitchen sink to corral all of our cleaning supplies we had stored. I love the way the little sponges fit perfectly in all the slats. My daughter was doing dishes and reached for a new sponge and said, "Oh, how organized." Exactly I thought. I am always looking for new ways to keep things in order.

Great idea. I use mine to hold cook books, but I love this.

That is the best idea I've seen in forever, I am so tired of my cleaning supplies in a big mess under the sink - I am buying a cheap one from Walmart today - thank you for a fabulous idea!!!

The Honey and I went antiquing over the weekend and I saw two of these; a blue one and a yellow one, the problem was that they had no price. As it was a mall with unattended booths, the lady at the counter couldn't sell them!
You'd think people would price their things--so they could sell. I love this idea!

Whatever works for you! It's doing a great job under the sink. I've been looking for a red one to use for files on my desk and the utensil holder holds the pens and pencils but I haven't found one yet. Walmart only has white and stainless. Any color except black would be better than white or stainless! LOL! I want C O L O R!

Good Idea-my under cabinet is scary.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love this idea! I'm going to look for one to use. It will be perfect to take out when you need to look for something or add supplies...lightweight and roomy!

Now that is clever Elaine!

NanaDiana said...

Hey- great minds think alike. I have this exact same thing under my sink. I think it works great and I can pull stuff out of it easier than if I just had the stuff sitting on the bottom of the cabinet. xo Diana

Great idea!! I am using something similar to this to hold paper sacks and the cover pieces over the sinks in our RV. But yours is much cuter!!

That is a great idea. Thanks for sharing!
