DIY Hidden storage: canned food storage cabinet

It's totally tiny but does a fine job suiting our needs...mostly... One problem I've run into with a small space is storage space. I've had to get a little creative and maximize the empty space hiding in the room since we're lacking a pantry. However, our kitchen had about a 6" opening between our wall and the refrigerator. I decided I needed to utilize this hidden space and that's exactly what I did!

For those concerned about heat, the side of my refrigerator does not get warm/hot at all. I have had this since May and it has been a dream come true in my kitchen!

Check out the full post for full instructions with a shopping list, wood list and full tutorial.

    Paul Nunez I think most are home made but I would think if you contacted any cabnet maker they could put one together very easily and maybe match it to your kitchen.

    I have seen this so many times, each time it reminds me how LITTLE SPACE it takes to make storage sometimes... this idea could be used ANYWHERE they put a filler strip or a few inches! I don't want a huge home,,,,just a WELL DESIGNED KITCHEN... this

    I could use the same idea to put a pull-out to hang a broom, portable vac, etc. I always thought they would slip to the back and I wouldn't be able to get to them without moving the refrigerator. The PULL OUT makes all the difference. Thanks.

    When we were having our kitchen remodeled, I made sure that we order lots of pull out drawers. We now have a huge pantry with six pullout drawers. All my canned goods and boxes are easily found when I need them. It also makes it easier to write up my

    Our old/new home has hand-made cabinets; but they are not very practical. My husband made pull out shelves for some of the base cabinets for such things as cookware, bread machines and other large heavy items. But we still have not figured out what to do

    Good idea overall, but doesn't it get hot on the cans that close to the fridge?

    This would work so well for me, I have a bad time remembering what we have.

    There is a hutch but half the time I forget to even look at it. With this, I could have him add a white board slider to part
