Assemble Cubby Compartment

Glue, clamp and nail the vertical 5-3/4 pieces on the outside of the marks. From here, mark the center line of the two exterior boxes. Glue and nail another vertical partition on both center lines.

Spray-Paint Compartment

Take the cubby compartment outside and give it a coat of white spray paint.

Attach Compartment

Once dry, screw the cubby compartment into place on the bottom portion of the organizer. Screw it in from the back side of the organizer to hide the screws.

Assemble Corkboard

Find and mark the center of the organizer to find the placement of the corkboard. Draw a line down the center of the board to separate the sides.

Attach Corkboard

With a pair of scissors, or a razor blade, cut the piece of cork so it fits nicely on one side of the board (Image 1). Spray the board and the cork with adhesive (Image 2). Stick the cork in the desired spot (Image 3).

Secure Organizer

Secure organizer to the wall.
