DIY Inside Cabinet Door Storage Shelves

251,643 Views
Anything that gives me even just a little more space and organization in my tiny kitchen is a big deal to me! And if it helps to clean up some clutter - well, all the better in my book! What I'm talking about is my DIY inside cabinet door shelf.
After digging through the scrap wood piles in my basement, I was able to come up with a few boards that would work for these shelves. I only wanted to use 1/4 thick wood.
I am using the shelves to hold the spice jars that I picked up at Ikea last spring.
So I measured and cut my wood to accommodate my spice jars.
I cut all of the boards to 18 (the measurement of the inside of my cabinet door). I would need three boards for each shelf: the bottom, back, and front.
The shelves were then assembled with wood glue and brad nails.
After assembling the shelves, it was time to paint them.
I made these shelves and hung them on the inside of what I call the baking/cooking cabinet and it's right next to the stove. This cabinet is where I store oils, vinegars, salt, cooking spray, etc. and it makes sense to store the spices on the inside of this cabinet.
For more instructions, details and photos, please visit my blog at the link shown below.

    I hope that the door hinges can accommodate the increased weight when all the cannisters are filled. She might want to be proactive and add some "helper hinges"

    Nice shelves, no matter where you hang them. I was just thinking... I'd have to draw a line on the shelf to figure out how far in to keep the supplies.

    This is very clever and attractive, but not for spices. You want to keep your spices as far away as possible from the heat and humidity of the stove -- they'll stay fresh and tasty much, much longer! But you could certainly use those shelves for salt, measuring cups, funnels, and other small, impervious cooking items.
