Step 1: Measure the length of your fabric.
After measuring the length of your kitchen drawer with a ruler, mark the same length on your fabric.
Step 2: Measure the height of your fabric.
After measuring the height of your kitchen drawer with a ruler, mark the same height on your fabric.
Step 3: Cut along your marked length line. Remove the access fabric.
Step 4: Fold along the height line and press with the iron.
Step 5: Cut along the folded line and remove the access fabric.
Step 6: Open up the fabric and apply a line of fabric glue along the top seam.
Step 7: Fold the bottom to the top piece and press along the glue line to close.
Step 8: Insert the Tension Rod.
Adjust the tension rod to the length of your drawer. Insert the tension rod into the opening you created in your fabric.
Step 9: Place the tension rod into your drawer.
The rod should be placed at the very top of the drawer opening, and the remaining fabric will hang down to touch the base of the drawer.
Insert two or more tension rods to create more dividers! The fabric helps create more of a separation between the items and prevents the utensils from sliding into another section.
You can also use tension rods in cupboards vertically, to separate cutting boards, baking pans, trays and more!
Or, what about using tension rods “sans-fabric” for all of your kitchen wrape? No more sliding boxes for tin foil, plastic wrap, ziploc bags and tea towels? The possibilities are endless! Give these tension rods a try in your own kitchen. I’d love to see what you come up with.
