I am so excited to share another project with you from the kitchen renovation. Yes, it’s another job crossed off the list, but it’s one of the things that was on the top of my must have list from the very beginning of the kitchen remodel. Not only that but it’s a great solution for some of the kitchen storage issues we face…a DIY trash drawer.
Right now we have a stainless steel garbage can and a very ugly plastic recycle bin sitting out in the kitchen. They are always in the way and I hate looking at them, so I really wanted to be able to hide them away. I have always had my garbage cans out in the open and easily accessible. It’s never been a problem before but with space at a premium, we didn’t have a good place to put 2 bins.
Kitchen storage has been a huge problem in this small space since the day we moved in. The only way to solve the issue was to would be to construct a custom cabinet on the empty window wall to hide them away.
Once the cabinet was constructed and installed, we built a wooden box to house the garbage and recycle bins and attached a soft close drawer slide on either side. There’s even some space in the box to store garbage bags and recycled plastic bags.
