DIY Drawer Dividers: The Only 1 You’ll Ever Need! (Easiest Wood Organizer)

How did we get our drawer organizers to fit so perfectly? Easy! We made our DIY drawer dividers out of wood and are sharing the smart n’ easy plans with you here!

Who doesn’t love good drawer organization, I want to know? ๐Ÿ™‚

Clearly millions agree, because the number of pre-made drawer organizers available out there is countless, right?

Just Google “DIY drawer dividers” and you’ll find thousands of pre-made drawer dividers, ranging from “adjustable” bamboo drawer dividers to plastic expandable dividers to folding fabric grids…it’s mayhem out there!

I hate to be the one to break it to those of you who haven’t yet realized this, but…

…here’s the problem:

None of them will perfectly fit your drawers!


The Problem with Pre-made Drawer Dividers

Because they’re all pre-made, it’s near impossible to find a DIY drawer divider that is

  1. The perfect height.
  2. The perfect width.
  3. The perfect depth.

Not to mention that the actual interior sizes of the drawer dividers themselves are most likely not exactly what you’d hope for!


Real-life Examples!

Example: You want to store your smoothie stuff in a drawer. You have your containers, your lids, your straws, your powders, and more. They’re all different heights, widths, and depths.

Is there a pre-made divider out there that will fit all your items perfectly in that drawer?


You’ll want the straw section narrower, for example, than where the lids go. And the lids will be narrower than the powder containers.

Here’s an example of a real-life smoothie drawer and a beverage container drawer with all its unique measurements!

How Can You Solve the Problem?

I begged Matt to put this How To together.

Because the answer to the question

“How did you find drawer organizers that fit so perfectly?”


“None you can buy!โ€ ๐Ÿ™‚

I know Iโ€™m lucky that I have a husband who can make me exactly what I want, but when I imagined I was someone who wasn’t married to him, I realized that I would be DESPERATE to know how to do this myself! 

โ€œIf you suddenly died and I was left alone, I WOULD NEED TO KNOW HOW TO MAKE THESE!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š

(Yes, I know what youโ€™re thinking–clearly my priorities are in order! DIY drawer organization first! My coping mechanism at the thought of widowhood and becoming a single mother? Gaining control and mastery over my drawer interiors!)

So now that weโ€™re all agreed that this is a vital piece of information, I can announce to you that Matt has made our DIY drawer divider plans available in the โ€œPlans & Design Guidesโ€ area of our blog HERE!

Perfectly organized drawers are in your immediate future, my friend!
