The kitchen is (at least for us!) the true heart of the home. It’s the place where families come together

and enjoy each other's company over snacks, drinks and home-cooked meals. For moms, it is also one of the busiest rooms in the house. Below are a few simple DIYs that will help keep the kitchen in tip top shape and you on track:

Chalkboard Backsplash for your kitchen

This DIY is so easy you will be done in 10 minutes. Purchase a can of chalkboard paint and paint the backsplash of your stove or your kitchen sink. This is a great place to write a grocery list or a to-do list, as you will look at it every day.

Holders for Cooking Utensils

Purchase inexpensive clay flower pots and paint them to match your kitchen, or better yet, have your children paint them for you! Then you can proudly display their artistic prowess and have a useful holder for your cooking utensils.

Chopping Board Burner Cover That Doubles Your Counter Space

Measure your stovetop and purchase a cutting board that covers two of your stove’s burners. Glue and secure two old burner covers to the bottom of the board, making sure they are centered. Voila! Instant counter space.
