DIY Hidden storage: canned food storage cabinet

STORAGE 13 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.

    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?

    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.

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