DIY Custom Drawer Dividers using HOT GLUE!

Yesterday I showed you how I changed a $65 clearance end table from Home Goods to a beautiful icy blue.  Now a new set of drawers are only good – at least for me – if they are organized.  Now you could buy some clear drawer organizers or bins but that adds up and doesn’t give you as many custom options as making your own drawer dividers does.  Plus you can’t beat the price of these.  Below is the sofa table I did with custom organizers for Kayla’s bows.


Lowes sells 1/4” wood pieces in various widths.  The poplar ones I used are $1.46 for a 2’ length.  All you need is a miter saw, measuring tape and a hot glue gun.

1.  Measure the longest length of your drawer and where you want your first piece to go.  Cut to that length.

2.  Using a hot glue gun glue that into the place.  The nice part about using hot glue is that you can always remove the glue down the road and start over with different dividers.

3.  Then measure the next piece and cut that.  I find it is easiest to glue one piece in place, measure, cut and then glue the next piece.

This is fabulous for BOWS!  If you have girls you, most likely, have a bow problem in your house too.


After you are done you will have a place for everything.  So grab some 1/4” wood and get to organizing those junk drawers – yep I know you have three one.
