Vanessa Brunner added this to Idea of the Week: Customizable Dish Drawer
By installing a pegboard cut to the size of your drawer and using wooden dowels with a dowel pin screwed into the bottom, you can create your own customizable dish organizer. The dowels keep the dishes in place and can be moved around as needed.This great idea for storing dishes was brought to our attention in the kitchen remodel of Houzz user Karen Heffernan. Inspired by some of the previous photos, she implemented the dowel-and-pegboard system above in several deep drawers for simple, space-efficient dish storage. What's your kitchen storage solution?
