If you’ve always wished you could put that awkward space between your fridge and the wall to good use, here’s an awesome idea. All it takes is a few boards and some casters to create a handy slide-out pantry.

What you need:

  • 2 pieces of 4-foot long; 6-inch wide boards
  • 7 pieces of 2-foot long; 6-inch wide boards
  • 4 ½-inch rods
  • Wood glue
  • Wood screws
  • Drill
  • Sandpaper or power sander
  • 4 casters
  • 4-foot x 2-foot pegboard or thin board for backing

Instructions:

Measure between fridge and wall.

Layout the frame using the two 4-foot boards as the sides and a 2-foot board as the top. Drill them into place.

Add the first three shelves about 7 inches apart. Then space the rest according to your needs. We created a storage bin at the bottom by drilling a 2-foot board across the front. This base is great for larger items like grains and potatoes.
