DIY Linen/Medicine Closet Door Organizer

I am nesting big time over here! I have 3 weeks until my due date and just can’t stop building stuff, organizing stuff, sewing/embroidering stuff…I’m a mess!!! Now I just need to get the “clean up your crap” nesting urge!

Anyway, the kid’s have a linen closet outside of their bathroom and although it is organized and everything is in bins (I have a reallllly bad obsession with bins, storage containers, etc) I decided that I wanted to create a hanging door organizer for medicine. I did not have any written plans or pictures to go off of. All I had was scrap wood and my imagination!

I cut and assembled everything in less than an hour!

DIY Linen/Medicine Closet Door Organizer BUILDING PLANS

Side Rails = vertical with the 1″ side touching the actual door

Shelves = horizontal expanding the width (4″) of the side rails

Guards = horizontal with 2″ facing out flush with shelf

-Attach shelves to side rail with Kreg Jig and Kreg Self Drilling Screws

-Attach guards to side rails using Nail Gun and 1 1/2″ Brad Nails

*(distance of shelves and guards is subject to the size of your door) (I placed my top shelves a different distance apart than the bottom ones because I wanted to put larger bottles of adult medicines at the top  …furthest from the kiddos reach)

-Using Drill Bits (larger than the head of the Self Anchoring Screws) create a hole in each side of the 1x4s that will touch the door

-Using Drill Bits pre drill holes in the door for the Self Anchoring Screws

-Screw in Self Anchoring Screws and hang organizer on the screws

The End!!

Load it up with whatever you would like!

Happy Building! p.s. I’ll be back tomorrow sharing my tutorial on a built-in bookcase my hubby and I built using my Kreg!!

I’d love for you to PIN this!
