We also did a full makeover on this master bathroom complete with recovering the counter with contact paper.

Pull Out Cabinet Organizer Supplies
- Cardboard box
- Hot Glue
- Ribbon (for edge if desired)
- Knob (You can get 1″ unfinished knobs on Amazon as an addon for $1)
- Wood facing if desired (carefully cut foam board would also work!)
- Drill for wood facing)
This is the cupboard I wanted a pull out drawer or two for.
I found a box that would fit close enough if turned on its side.
I measured how high I wanted it.
Then marked it with a marker.
Then cut where it was marked.
Then glued it back together firmly.
I wanted a nice facing on the front as that’s the part that would show. I had some inexpensive unfinished thin wood frames from the craft store but they were too small for my box.
Since Roy does woodworking he cut me a quick piece of wood that would fit. Had I not had wood I would have very carefully cut a piece of foam board to place on the front. Just make sure you cut the edges nice and straight using a straight edge of some sort.
I painted my box.
I wanted to cover up the top edge so I grabbed some wider white ribbon and glued it on over the edge.
Then I painted my wood front. If I had used foam board I probably would have kept it white.
I drilled a hole in the exact center so I could add the knob I had.
Then the front was glued on.
I used an awl to poke a hole into the cardboard through the wood front.
Then I pushed my knob screw through.
And screwed it on. All done and my pull out cabinet organizer didn’t cost me a cent!
Love this idea–especially for a rental. I’ve put in a couple of wire shelves, but I’m trying to figure out how to make a box work around the plumbing without losing precious storage space. I hate digging to reach things in back of cabinets, don’t you? Think I may try this in kitchen as well. Reaching for pots is my ultimate pet peeve. Thanks for the great idea.
Yeah I know what you mean Terry. Under the sink is trickier but when working with cardboard you can trim it as needed to allow for pipes I would think.
