Turn Your Fake, Unopenable Kitchen Drawers Into Real Storage

If you have a few kitchen "drawers" that don't open because they're just there for "decoration", you can turn them into something useful with just a little bit of DIY work. The DIY Club chose to take the false drawer fronts off and turn them into small trays for sponges, steel wool and other things you keep around your kitchen.

All you need is a few hinges and a Rockler Sink Front Tip-Out Tray. You'll also need a drill to screw in the hinges, but it's otherwise a very simple DIY project that can turn those useless drawer fronts into actual storage. Hit the link to see the full how-to guide.

    What I like to do with fake drawers is to attach a long rectangular tray to the back to the "drawer" face, put a couple of roller tracks on each side so that you can slide the tray back and forth, and voila! You've transformed your fake drawer into a neat storage rectangular sliding tray thingy. Wow, that's a mouthful, I need to think up a name for this invention...

    I dont understand, why are there not just real drawers there to start with?

    I have fake draws, the result of a new, deeper sink installed into an older kitchen rendering the old draws useless. That is, until now...
