I built this DIY Canned Food Organizer and it’s basically changed my life. Let’s start by saying, have you see my little kitchen?
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. Which btw, I didn’t even notice until I saw this pin on pinterest and knew I needed my own version stat! This idea blew me out of the water! It will solve all of the world’s problems!! Or at least my kitchen space dilemma! *wink*
- No. This is NOT a free-standing cabinet. It is fully supported by the wall on the left side and the refrigerator on the right side. If it is pulled out too far, it could potentially fall. I built it over a year ago and have not had any issues with it at all but I suppose it could happen. You could install a stopper on the floor or locking casters to prevent an accident.
- My refrigerator does not heat up on the sides and over the past year, I have had absolutely no issues with food spoiling from any heat. The fridge is completely cool to the touch.
- The total was around $110 to build it. For all materials.
