I truly believe that base cabinets were placed on earth as some cosmic joke. Well, maybe it’s not that extreme, but it certainly is aggravating to try to store things in them. You either end up with everything right at the front and a ton of wasted space in the back, or you have to take everything out anytime that you need something. Adding drawers is the solution, but so many people tell me that while they love DIYing, they just don’t have the skills or tools to do something so drastic. However, there is an easy way to add pull-out drawers to bottom cabinets, and I am going to show you exactly how!
I finally have gotten around to organizing my junk drawer. It was really in need of some love, but I have been putting it off for awhile now, trying to focus on other more pressing projects. I have justified my procrastination by telling myself that it is just a junk drawer and by definition should not be organized. I mean, it’s right there in the title, “junk!” But, that line of thinking can only satisfy my obsessive need for order for so long. It would appear that the time was finally up. Luckily, I found these AMAAAAZING, easy DIY custom drawer dividers from Rockler.*

Regardless of what type of shelves that you have, whether they are built-in bookshelves, closet shelves, or kitchen cabinet shelves, it is always a good idea to have them to be adjustable. Adjustable shelves make it possible to customize your space to allow for very tall items or very small items. It also makes it possible to quickly add additional shelves. If you have ever wondered how to make shelves adjustable, the good news is that it is not hard at all!
