DIY Kitchen Sink Organizer

Today I’m sharing a DIY kitchen sink organizer using thrift store finds and paint.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kohler for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Kohler Worth Kitchen Faucet

I was excited at the opportunity to work with Kohler and even more excited when I saw their Kohler Worth Kitchen Faucet in oil-rubbed bronze.  I have always thought a darker faucet would be perfect in my kitchen since it would fit my vintage style and look better with our darker appliances.

Kohler has an array of beautiful faucets that fit any decor like the Kohler Trielle Kitchen Faucet and the Kohler Sous Kitchen Faucet.

Kitchen Faucet Before

We had a nickel faucet before and plenty of kitchen clutter next to the sink.

Kitchen Faucet Makeover

The new Worth kitchen sink has the handle on the faucet, so you can put a soap (or lotion) dispenser where the handle once was.  Besides removing my soap containers, I also created a DIY kitchen organizer for my scrubber and dish soap.  I love the more organized cleaner look!

I found my Kohler Worth Kitchen Faucet at Home Depot.

Installing Kohler Kitchen Faucet

It was easy to install, and we moved our old faucet and installed the new one in under one hour.

Kohler Kitchen Faucet Sprayer

This faucet has so many great features including the 2-function spray head which features stream and sweep – a wide forceful spray that makes cleanup easier.

And the spray head stays in place through Kohler’s signature magnetic docking system.

Kohler Faucet and soap dispenser

I am a huge fan of the soap dispenser I mentioned earlier.  Less clutter is always good!

Besides loving our new faucet, I love the look and functionality of the raised dishes next to the kitchen sink.  They look pretty and organize essentials.

DIY Kitchen Organizer

I decided I could easily DIY my own kitchen sink organizer using old plates and candlestick holders.

Reusing old dishes

Thrift stores and garage sales are full of random dishes.  I found all of these at Goodwill for around $5.

To DIY your own kitchen sink organizer, find a plate (I used a smaller salad plate) and a candle holder.  I decided I needed two – one for my kitchen and one for my bathroom!

Next, find a strong glue.

Add glue to the top of the candle holder.

Creative Upcycle

Set the plate on top of the candle holder and glue.

Gluing plates and candlesticks

Allow drying according to the glue’s instructions.

How to reuse old dishes

Once the glue is dry, you can paint.

And once your paint dries, you can use your pretty organizer(s)!

I have one in my kitchen:
