My "Under the Kitchen Sink" Makeover

My "under the sink makeover" was long overdue and the difference between the before and the "after" is amazing.
Here is the "BEFORE" picture. I can't believe it was this bad!
I put up a shelf so that I could hang white wire baskets from it to give extra space.
These baskets actually "hang" from the shelf I put in - okay, I had son help me... okay, son put the shelf up. :)
I used an old drawer at the bottom of the cupboard so that I could easily take it right out to clean up.
I put small things in prettied up jars....

    did you cut out for the pipe in the shelf board or just make it come to the pipe?

      It looks like it is just a small shelf that doesn't go as far as the pipes.

      They make a liner for under sinks now or I just buy heavy vinyl for table covers by the yard at Walmart. I always line under my sinks in case of leaks or just the crumbles that accumulate there. Makes it easy to wipe clean.

    The top is it a pull out type of shelf? You don’t seem to explain how you did it & I don’t understand how exactly to accomplish it;can you be specific?

      Looks wonderful. So bright and cheery! If I may make a suggestion; you could use a couple of those Command Hooks on the doors to hold your brush and maybe gloves if you attach a butterfly clip to the command hook and clip the gloves to it.

    Would have liked instructions on how your son put in the shelf for the wire baskets..

      Her son just screwed 2 blocks into the inside of the cabinet to support the shelf. Then the shelf on the blocks, just behind the magnetic latches, to hang the baskets on.
