3 Ways I Used the Duck® Brand Shelf Liner to Organize My Kitchen
My kitchen is a hub of memory making fiascoes along with the daily necessities of food preparation. Basically, it’s the most used room in my home.

We prepare, eat, and clean up meals together, share family devotions, extend hospitality, enjoy impromptu dance parties, and so much more in our kitchen!

For the most part, my kitchen stays organized and relatively clean. I’m constantly cleaning out, decluttering, and re-organizing our kitchen to fit our needs throughout the year.

If you downloaded your monthly checklist, then you know I’m focusing on decluttering and organizing my kitchen this month. And even though it stays pretty well-organized, there were a few hot spots that needed some TLC. It was these hot spots that I was determined to find a solution for this month!

Therefore, when Duck® Brand asked me to review their easy shelf liners, I couldn’t resist.

I knew I needed a kick in the pants to get my kitchen checked off my list, and I had already been eyeing the red and white patterned Duck® Brand easy shelf liners at the store because it fits my home’s color pallet.

Duck® Brand’s shelf liners are an easy and decorative way to organize your kitchen and other areas of your home.

I’ve used them in my bathroom, laundry room, and even a college dorm room! The Smooth Top Easy Liner is my favorite because it’s very simple to wipe clean.

I didn’t get to choose which designs to review. So when I opened my package and saw the red and white patterned shelf liner, I literally squealed. It’s the little things, y’all!

I got right to work, and I can say I have successfully taken care of the hot spots in my kitchen and can check it off my list for the month.

My Utensil Drawer

My utensil drawer was sadly out of control.

Does anyone else get totally grossed out by the amount of crud those little utensil separators attract? Yuck!

In addition to being dirty, the utensil holder kept sliding around in my drawer. This is a pet peeve of mine. Drives me bananas!

After clearing everything out of the drawer and washing down all of my containers, I decided to use the beige easy shelf liner to line my enormous utensil drawer. All you need to do is cut your shelf liner to size. Easy peasy!

After everything dried, I put everything back in and voila! Pet peeve solved.

The Duck® Brand Easy Liner keeps my utensil separators in their places. *sigh of relief*

No more rummaging in the back of the drawer to find my vegetable peeler or baby spoon. Everything now stays in its proper spot and looks nice too!

My Plates, Bowls, and Fancy Glasses

I love my yard sale wooden cabinet! It’s such a fun and unique piece!

I use it to store our dried herbs as well as our dinner plates, bowls, and fancy glasses (as we call them). It sits near our dining room table, making it easy access when my toddler sets the table for dinner.

But it was sort of blah! After consulting with my toddler, I decided to add the Duck® Brand’s Shelf Liner (in the pretty, red and white pattern, of course!) to the bottom shelf. My toddler agreed that it was “very pretty” and “a good idea,” so I thought, “Why not?”

I am super pleased with the way it looks, and the shelf liner keeps my dinnerware from sliding around on the shelf. I was always really nervous about my toddler helping load and unload the plates each day for fear he’d whack a fancy glass.

My Dishwashing Station

My dishwashing station has always been my arch nemesis. I’ve always wanted it to look pretty, but also be incredibly functional. I like pretty things, but the pretty things have to make sense.

I found some wooden shelves at a yard sale a few weekends ago for a dollar a piece. I snagged all that the man had, and started brainstorming the many ways I wanted to use them.

I turned two of them into bookshelves for my children (post coming soon!), which left with me with three more.

Now I’m down to two shelves because I transformed one shelf into my dishwashing corralling station.

First, I painted my shelf a granite color from some leftover paint samples I had on hand, which took all of about three minutes. It took about three more minutes to dry.

Then, I cut a small piece of my pretty Duck® Brand’s Shelf Liner  to fit the size of the shelf. I used double-sided tape to make it stick a little more securely. All of this took about one minute.

I put my pretty shelf in my windowsill and filled it with my dish soap, hand soap, and a few other odd and ends. Seven minutes later, I had a pretty (and functional!) DIY Dishwashing Station. The liner will help protect my shelf from drips of soap and water and will be easy to wipe clean.

  1. Leigh Ann, I love your dishwashing station. Wow, I’ll have to make one of those for my window. I just wish my house came with that view! Lucky girl! Thanks for sharing about these liners. I like the red patterned. I’ll have to check to see if they have more patterns to choose from.

    1. I love my view, especially in the Spring. We have a beautiful blooming tree right outside my window…and lemon balm wafts in. My little heaven on earth! Dishes are a little sweeter task now. They have a fun green circle pattern that’s really cute too!

  2. I need those on the insides of my cabinets and drawers! The inside of our cabinets are just rough, unsanded wood. In the kitchen, I’ve just been living with it, but in our bathrooms, I have dish clothes spread down on the bottom of each drawer, to keep my cosmetics splinter free. 🙂

  3. I love the pretty red and white! I’ve never used shelf liners since my first apartment after marriage because it was such a hassle to put down. This sounds easier to use if all you do is cut and put it in! And its so pretty!! 🙂

  4. We have leather seats in one of our cars and a State Trooper advised us to get some that that grippy shelf lining to put under the car seats. It gives the seat more grip and helps it not slide around so much. We used it for years!

  5. Would love to get some of those liners. So nice to see that they can look cool! I remember my mom always using liners in her kitchen, but they didn’t have much color varieties in those days… always a drap white or beige or dark green. Eck. Thanks for sharing about these liners!!

  6. Great share Ann,
    Having an organized kitchen is very necessary as that will also ensure safety.
    I’ve never used any Duck brand before but, it seems to be good and i might give it a shot.

    Thanks for sharing.
