Asked on Jun 16, 2017

Could I make a pantry from 2 pre-fab wall cabinets stacked together?

I don't want anything too deep so upper wall cabinets would be perfect and if I stack 2 together it would give me a lot of room. I'd want to connect them somehow and tie them to the wall.

    I have done this in the past. I used wood glue to hold the pieces together and attached metal screw in brackets to the backside for added strength. You can then screw them to a stud in your wall. Hope this helps.

    It might be possible for you to use brackets on the back to connect them together, and then you definitely want to attach them to the wall to prevent them from tipping over.

    Yes, just make sure they are secured well to the wall. We actually used one on the floor with a top to put a microwave on. It sets under two double hung upper cabinets on top of each other up high on the wall. The microwave fits perfect. We have a tiny house, so cabinet space was at a premium.

    Wanda Stephenson - Pre Fab cabinets are the wood cabinets are Particle Board? You can do this but you will need to secure the two cabinets together with wood screws or bolts . I prefer the bolts in each corner.(require drilling holes) Then be sure to secure to the wall studs to prevent tipping over. Your new Pantry.
