Where do you store your canned goods? If it’s anything but in the coolest pull-out drawer on earth, this family has you beat. We can all appreciate the DIY families who think of the best ways to manage our day to day activities.
After reading this article you’ll never want to banish your cans to a hall closet again. The Roeker’s are a DIY family that loves solving their clutter problems and their newest project isn’t to be beat. Start by measuring that aggravating space between your refrigerator and the wall. If you’ve got about 3-inches you’re golden. Build up a solid box frame with wood, some screws and heavy duty tracking or coasters.
The Roeker’s used pine, a great solid no-fuss wood. Working with details and fantastic hardware the box really starts to come together. Adding the shelves last saved the family from excessive measurements. They secured them with base supports and screws. Of course, soon as you pulled out the shelf the cans would fly. Simple solution – they added simple dowels to each side to keep the cans in place while moving.
Perfect and complete, stand up your shelving unit, sand, stain and enjoy. The shelving unit will hold hundreds of cans and allow your family to start an easy can rotation so you’ll never have an expired can of beans again.
