Our pantry was a disaster. Impossible to find anything and not enough room to store things neatly. My wife and I decided to start by adding a rack to the inside of the door. There is a lot of wasted space there so we took advantage of that. We designed and built this together. That was a lot of fun! I enjoyed watching her use the machines for the first time.

This is actually two separate racks, an upper and a lower. It is made from scrap wood and plywood. We left it unfinished but may paint it in the future.

Very COOL…

That’s a lot of extra storage…! Can’t have too much storage!

Thank you.

Is that a hollow core door? If so, how did you attach it? I’d love to do the same thing in my pantry.

@camestoy Yes, it is a hollow core door. I pre-drilled the rack and used drywall screws. I was concerned about the strength so i tested it with my own weight. It holds firmly.
