Kitchen Storage -- Happy Camper!!

Project by MsDebbieP posted 10-28-2012 04:22 PM 2147 views 2 times favorited 17 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Oh joy, oh joy… can you see the big smile on my face?

???I have new storage space in my kitchen … ???????

Once Rick got started it only took him a couple of weeks (in-between golfing days) to put this all together for me.

The Before
I had to bend over and crawl into the space under the stairs to access the “junkpile” called storage. It was a big pain – literally and figuratively.

The Components
I think the wheels are for a weight capacity of 200 lbs.
The wood is unfinished 3/4” plywood.
There are 4 pull-out shelving units plus an additional shelving unit against the wall.
Cost: $300

For those who like fine furnishing, this probably isn’t for them. But I love rustic. These babies may look rustic to some but they are sturdy, efficient, and I love them! (Happy dance)

Thank-you Rick
(and he got “Chocolate Pecan Pie” and “cinnamon buns” for his hard work—he, too, is a happy camper!)

that’s funny—because—I actually did that once for LumberJocks.com but unfortunately I recently deleted it.

but LumberJock Douglas put this together some time ago. Will this do?

Very nice Debbie!

Give Rick a BIG ATTABOY!

I’ve been planning on doing this for a long time, but under the steps from behind.

thanks.

I thought I’d posted a picture of what we did at the end of the stair space, but I guess not.
We put a shelving area in the dining room wall, jutting into the stair space. It’s beautiful. Some day I should take a picture of it too

Nice job. That’s a great way to reclaim the needed space. Very cool.

Now that is a great use of usually “Wasted Space”!!

Nice Design By You! Great Piece Of Work By Rick!! (The Other Rick …LOL..)

Rick

Do you have any Kitchen Cabinets you’d like to do the same type of work to?

I did this one for a Neighbour about 2 Years Ago. VERY straight forward. Not difficult at all.

Stile Removed (I just Twisted it out) Now attached to the back of the Left Hand Door. Middle Shelf Popped Out. Drawers made from Birch and Blum Full Extension Slides.

oh I like the “double” width.
Rick has added pull-out shelves to almost all of my cabinets. But I never thought of going “double’ ...dang.
