Figuring out how to build a blind corner cabinet pull out was the last of my kitchen organizing projects.  And definitely the most challenging, design-wise.

Blind corner cabinets are always a challenge to organize.  There’s the easy-to-reach part of the cabinet right in front of the door, but the bulk of the storage area is back in the corner…very hard to reach!  I had researched buying a ready-made version of something that would help with the problem, but none of them would the 13″ door opening in my cabinet (and they were all pretty expensive, too!)  So I decided to make my own.

I took a 2-phased approach to solving this problem.  The first is to build pull-out shelves for the blind portion of the cabinet.  These roll from the blind portion of the cabinet to the part that is right in front of the door so you can reach the things that are stored on the shelf.  This post will go through the details of putting these shelves together.

To recap all of the kitchen organization projects so far:

    Good idea, Wanda. Now you just have to figure out how to pull out the front section so you don’t have to unload to get at the back section. Now there’s a challenge for you. (My attempt at being funny.)
