I do love nooks and crannies to put thing in! When I first saw this I knew I’d eventually have to have some. There’s something extra special about secret hidey spots that appeal to the sneaky in me. (Not that my sink sponges and Brillo Pads are something I need to hide from prying eyes.) Anyway, on a more practical note I like the fact that it makes use of otherwise useless space which makes them extra awesome for smaller kitchens. The project does require purchasing some of the ready made drawer inserts shown in the photos. There are several available and they can get a bit pricey but I found a set of two of them for fairly inexpensive on Amazon. They come complete with everything needed to install them. All you need are a few basic tools.
My dad did the honors of installing these for me. It took him about 30 minutes and overall wasn’t too difficult. These allows me to keep my less used sink items hidden away. FYI: Unless you attach a small handle on the fronts you have to grab the sides to pull these open. On another practical note you could keep your jewels in these and I bet no burglar would find them!
FUNKY KITCHEN DISCLAIMER
We just moved into this home a couple months ago. The kitchen is deco 1970’s and will be getting an update in the future. Try not to let my retro cupboards draw your attention away from the project at hand. Ü
- Pre-made Tilt Out Drawer Set (Set I purchased.)
- Flat screwdriver
What comes in the box.
Remove the wood covers on the front of the sink. This can be done by gently prying off or opening the cupboards below and hammering the backs of them.
Following the instructions in the kit attach the side mechanisms to each drawer opening.
After measuring carefully attach the correct pieces to each cover.
Screw the trays in place on the back of the covers and attach to opening as shown in the instructions.
The trays are small but great for holding items such as these. No more sink clutter!
To open mine I have to pull both sides out. For ease you could also attach a handle to the front of each one.
