My wife and I bought this house in 2004 and the master bath came with no draws to put our personals. I though about it for a while and then one night while laying in bed I came up with this idea to Get Around The Problem. The red bottom is 3 mm PVC sign board. That’s all I had laying around the shop so I used it. When I get started on a project I can’t stop and find a way to NOT got to the store. The PVC sign board worked well for this project, saved some gas too!
Attached to the inside rail, is a small tray to store more small items.

brilliant idea, and great use of that space. the only other solution I’ve seen to use that space was a shallow rollout shelf, but your solution is far more efficient, and looks better too!
