DIY Hidden storage: canned food storage cabinet

Storage 5 hours ago
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.

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

      Terri S She mentioned HER fridge does not get hot on the sides... probably a newer model or something... but, if the fridge does get warm (as mine does), perhaps the added space

      @ Jeannie DiMauro Now see, that's what I like to read. Someone seeing the good in something that someone has made instead of all of the negativity that other people find.

    Terri S has a good point. Do they get hot there?

    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

    How do you keep it from falling over when it is pulled out all the way?

      There's little rods an inch or so above the bottom of each shelf holding the cans in, if that is what you were asking. Or are you asking about the whole device?

      Gloria Wilson I was asking about the whole thing. It seems like it might be top-heavy when it's loaded.

    Your kitchen will always have some hidden space for storage and this is a great way to utilize it for canned goods. There are more hidden spaces that you haven’t thought about and you can scan the pages of Pinterest for more great ideas! Not only

    Does this impact the required space allotment for the appliance? I would be concerned with overheating. Pkease advise. Great idea though.

    My cousin who lives in Ireland, had a new kitchen put in about 30 yrs ago. This was one of the pieces.
