    Hi Carrie, one of the big box stores (Lowes, Home Depot etc.) Could probably order you exactly what you need to replace it. Here's a fun idea though, turn the drawer opening into a shelf and add a storage basket :) (Image found on google image search)

    Use one of the other kitchen drawers as a guide and template to make one. Just adjust the measurements to fit the space

    Bring the other kitchen drawer to lowes or Home depot and find a replacement. If you have a Habitat for Humanity near, go and see if they have any drawers. I saw some in my H&H last trip there.

    Hi! I would take a picture of one of the other drawers, and what type of hardware it uses to slide the drawer in and out. Try one of the other drawers in the empty space. If it is the same size, take some careful measurements. The drawer can be replaced and matched to the rear of the cabinetry. Good luck and stay safe!

      If you have a Habitat for Humanity Restore anywhere near you, you might check, they get lots of bits and pieces. Plus since lots of guys who volunteer might know of one of the volunteers who could do this work. If its a rental, would it be covered by your homeowner's insurance?

    Hello Carrie,

    A Carpenter will soon be able to replace it for you, by making a new one!
