DIY Hidden storage: canned food storage cabinet

Classy Clutter
by Classy Clutter
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!

    why did you stagger the casters, for the room or stablility?


    How stable is this when you pull it out? What prevents it from falling over when you try to access the way back items?

    That narrow space beside your fridge is for air circulation so your fridge will not overheat and so it will last longer!!

    Whatever you store next to your fridge will get too much heat and not last as long.
