Default Pantry Door Organizer

@Gaffboat
Well Ollie, this is another fine mess you've gotten me into!

After my wife saw your paper towel dispenser, she asked me if I could build another organizer for our pantry door and incorporate paper towel storage.

To check the space available for the modification, she got in the pantry with her tape measure and I closed the door. "Seven inches of clearance".

She played around with the paper towel roll and we agreed on a plan. Of course, this plan is subject to change at any time. Our pantry is small and about as organized as it can get. So, I will build a new organizer to fit the door. It will be the same length, a few inches wider (20) with deeper shelves for more storage.

The contents will remain basically the same, just better organized, and have room for two or maybe three rolls of paper towels. The extra inventory is stored out in the garage.

So, that is the plan. I have some 1/2 inch Baltic Birch so...

Oops! I should have visited this forum very early. Last winter I had messed up with the pantry and mud room and found it quite hard to put them back in place. The rooms are quite small and I was short of space. I wonder how you manage to organize this very well. I had to call a home storage solution company, Onwall Solutions in Toronto to get my rooms back in action. Though they are quite pricey, they are worth the money. I should have discussed my issue here before I thought of hiring them if I had cam to know bout this forum. Anyway I think Iit would be better to follow you guys.

Mike, that's very nice. I need the same for my pantry. Fortunately, my wife hasn't discovered this forum, yet.

I have the 1/2 inch parts cut out but had to put the project on hold while we finish up the kitchen remodel for a friend. Then we are going to Oklahoma to visit with our kids and our great grand son's 2nd birthday. Hope the weather cooperates.

I should get back to it in a couple of weeks. I will post some pics.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Great idea for extra storage, but my pantry door opens in not out so anything I put behind the door will be hidden and inconvenient.

Time to do a conversion...? Unless you don't have the room to swing out...?

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Alas, I don't, an outward door would block the fridge. That's okay because my pantry is 6'x8'.
