Add Extra Storage to Your Kitchen with Some Under-Cabinet Drawers

Kitchen space is always at a premium, and that space under your cabinets is probably being wasted. The Family Handyman has a great guide to building custom toe-kick drawers for some extra storage along the floor.

This is definitely a more advanced weekend project, but the result is really nice. You just need to remove some of the wood in the “toe kick” below your cabinets and build drawers to fit. The Family Handyman has some plans to help you along the way, and with a little elbow grease, you’ll have a few shallow drawers perfect for baking sheets, cutting boards, and other flat tools. Hit the link for the full guide.

Turn a Set of IKEA Drawers Into the Perfect Home Server Cabinet

Share

If you have a home server—whether it’s a pre-bought model or one you built yourself—you need a good place to put it. IKEA Hacker Lauzer put his in a modded IKEA cabinet that keeps it within quick reach.

Why put your server in the closet, after all, when it’s so hard to get to (and there aren’t always outlets)? Lauzer took apart an old set of IKEA Vestby Drawers he found online (sadly, they’re discontinued, but many different pieces would work with this), painted them black, and added some glass to the front to keep the whole thing visible. It looks a lot nicer than the original drawers, but was less work than building something from scratch, so it’s perfect for a quick build. Check out the full post below for step-by-step instructions.
