DIY Hidden storage: canned food storage cabinet

DIY HOME 5 days 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.

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

    I may make something like this to go between my counter and the oven. Great idea!

    so easy to modify for any tiny space to squeeze a bit of extra storage..even counter height, or between a washer and dryer.

    Absolutely love this, thanks for sharing, have you tried the under cabinet drawers as well for storing plastic wrap, foil etc? Works well in small areas too.
