Supplies Needed: 



First, confirm that the inside of the cabinet door is clean. Luckily, the inside of a cabinet door doesn’t typically have grime and buildup like the outside.

However, it’s still best to wipe down the surface before installing the memo board. A clean surface ensures that the command strips are secure.

Next, attach command strips to the cork square. Follow the directions on the command strip, making sure to attach the “command side” to the cork and the “wall side” to the cabinet door.

3. Install the Cork Square

Once the command strips are attached, peel away the “wall side” covers. Then, press it onto the inside of the cabinet door. Make sure to press on each corner to fully seal the adhesive.

In general, I’ve found that command strips provide mixed results. Sometimes I’ll attach an item with command strips and it won’t budge for years. Other times, it will hold well temporarily, but will eventually fail several weeks (or months) later.

Therefore, you might want to add a couple of small nails in the corners. If nailing anything into your kitchen cabinet doors makes you nervous (no worries, that’s me, too!), give the command strips a try for a while.


Finally, use pushpins to fill up the corkboard. Consider pinning recipes, measurement conversions, or even family photos (just to make you smile!).
