    Surprise! Shelves upon shelves of space.

    by , ,

    What you need:

    路 2 pieces of 4-foot long, 6-inch wide boards

    路 7 pieces of 2-foot long, 6-inch wide boards

    路 4 陆-inch rods

    Wood glue

    路 Wood screws


    Sandpaper or power sander

    4 casters

    路 4 foot x 2 foot pegboard or thin board for backing


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

    2. 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.

    3. Flip the shelves upside down and attach the backing.

    4. Add casters to the four corners of the bottom.

    5. Cut rods to size, and glue them in front of each shelf to keep things in place.

    6. Slide your new pantry into place, and enjoy the extra space!
