6 Hidden Fridge Gap Slide-Out Pantry


Hidden Fridge Gap Slide-Out Pantry: In this Instructable, you will learn how to steal some much needed kitchen storage, and not take up any more room in doing so. I live in a small apartment with an even smaller kitchen that is lacking in the storage department. So I needed a new cabinet, and since I do NOT have permission to put big holes in the walls for more cabinetry, I thought that the 4.5 inch gap between my refrigerator and the wall could work. I am now able to just pull the pantry out and grab whatever I need and slide it back into hiding. I love how much storage it actually has and that it does not take up any additional space.Oh and the process will be much faster and less sweat inducing if you have an electric saw and not just a hacksaw.
