Under Sink Storage

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

New Years always inspires fresh starts and what better way than to organize under your sink!  Or if you're like me your kitchen sink may look more like this:
Wanting to maximize the small space, while also bringing order to chaos we decided to install this two-tiered organizer.
 Definitely worth the investment!  The installation was pretty straight forward and we're thrilled with how easily it glides back and forth.
 We added a hook for hanging a veggie brush and also inserted our own DIYed shelf liner to each tier.  To make we took leftover Hobby Lobby fabric, cut to size, then had laminated for easy cleaning. 
We also love a good grommet and couldn't resist adding eyelets to a bright colored set of gloves!  This allows for easy storing and quicker drying.
 For the other side we installed a DIYed pull out trash can.   
First we added this drawer pull to a trash can.  Then installed two drawer slides like these, first to the floor of the cabinet, then to the bottom of the trash can.
Kitchen Sink ~ Check!  Now if only we could do the same for the bathroom :)


  1. Shell, I LOVE what you've done under the sink - so clever & pretty!! My undersink cabinet needs an intervention! Thanks for the inspiration! -beth

  2. Shell, this is so clever!! I wish our kitchen was this organized. I was so excited to check out your new projects. Keep up the good work!

  3. Organized bliss! Definitely putting grommets in my pink dish gloves in the near future. : )

  4. Michelle, this looks so nice. If it were mine I'd leave the door open! Grams

  5. Care to share where you found the organizer? Defnitely need this under both kitchen sink and bathroom vanity, Thank you.

  6. It's beautiful! But I don't see the same containers and bottles, a lot are missing. Reorganize with the same things that were there before.

  7. You don't need to waste money unnecessarily having the cloth laminated. Just serge the edges and throw it in the washer, OR, if you don't sew, buy a roll of Steam-a-Seam and follow the easy directions to turn the raw edges under and press permanently into place, then throw it in the washer when needed.

  8. I'm wondwring, the trash can. I'm guessing you drilled right into it to keep it there. How's the bin holding up now? I've been looking for diy ways to pull out my trash without using a door, since my trash will be in the middle of the cabinet. This is the only blog/article I've found like this. Help would be greatly appreciated :-D
