My new hobby? Totally change the atmosphere of my kitchen by bringing it a touch of cheerfulness. I wanted to bring good humor to this room where I spend a large part of my free time. But the decoration shops at the moment display rather pastel or sober tones. The motto "We are always better served by ourselves" takes on its full meaning. So I started making this cutlery tray, a well marked fuchsia pink. The greyness has only to keep well! It will not pass through my kitchen! To make this cutlery tray at home too, I detail the 6 steps to make it. Are you ready ? So let's start.


- A 13 cm x 30 cm chipboard - 8 chipboard screws - 6 large format cans - A plastic handle 25 cm long and 2 cm wide maximum - Acrylic paint - A nail - A brush - A hammer - A Phillips screwdriver

Budget: 10 euros Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes


1. Fully paint your chipboard. From a practical point of view, first paint one side and dry before turning the board over and paint the other side. This will avoid finding the board stuck to your newsprint.

2. While your board is drying, prepare the cans. Using a nail and a hammer, make a small hole at the top of each of them (about one centimeter from the edge).

3. Then paint the outside of your cans. With your nail, go back into the hole made beforehand so as not to block it. My little tip to avoid getting paint all over your fingers is to slide your hand inside the inverted box to stabilize it, and paint the outline with the other hand. Leave to dry for at least 1 hour.

4. Screw your painted cans to the board using your screwdriver.

5. With your hammer and nail, make two holes at the ends of the handle.

6. Screw the handle to your board.

And There you go ! Your cutlery storage is ready to use.

Practical, I use it to quickly set up my outdoor table. This saves me from having to navigate too often between my kitchen and my terrace. If you have a kitchen and a dining room, this cutlery tray will save you just as much time! I really like the clever and ecological side of reusing the boxes that we would have discarded initially. Now it's up to you to play and customize your cutlery storage: bright colors, pastels, iridescent for the holidays… You can even use it to install aromatic plants or it can also serve as beauty storage. All variations are possible! Did you like this tutorial? Send us photos of your super recovered cutlery tray via our Facebook page, and find other ideas on our Pinterest!
