Budget Kitchen Renovation; Adding Kitchen Cabinet Pull Outs

See a review of two Kitchen cabinet pull outs. These two metal pull out two tiered cabinets have helped organize my kitchen.

Welcome to my series of budget kitchen renovation posts! This is the second post in this series. I just completed the “replacing drawer slides” post where I painted the pine drawers and removed all the old drawer slides and replaced them with new ball bearing glides. What a difference it made!

Today I’m discussing adding pull out metal cabinets to the old pine wood kitchen cabinets. I will admit, most pull out metal cabinets aren’t the cheapest, but they are so functional! Not a fan of the metal slide outs? You can also add drawers to kitchen cabinets that are made from wood.

I even found a great blind corner cabinet pull out for the wasted space in our corner cabinet.

Let me show you what one of the cabinets looked like in our kitchen before adding the metal basket pull outs.

I’m embarrassed to share this picture with you because these cabinets look so awful. Believe it or not I had just cleaned the wood not long before. Since the wood is old, no matter how much cleaning I do, it never looks great.

The first thing I did was remove the top shelf to make room for the pull out shelves.

Next I painted the entire cabinet with two coats of Kilz Premium Primer. I then applied a coat of Valspar cabinet and furniture paint to the surface to make sure it would last.

Once the paint was dry, It was time to install the pull outs!

For the pull out shelves, I’m using two different highly rated brands from Amazon. The first one was from Rev-A-Shelf and the corner cabinet pull out was from a company called Vevor.

Both of these products came highly rated.

This shelf is so easy to measure for and install. It’s been a great addition to this space!

Side note; this shelf was meant to be screwed into each side of the cabinet. As you can see one side of the cabinet is open so I was unable to do that. I felt like that was ok because it is screwed into the wood floor of the cabinet and the back of the cabinet. It is still very sturdy and won’t move or shake when it’s sliding open and closed.

We love this new blind corner pull out cabinet. It makes so much sense for this space!

That being said, I’m considering moving the Rev-A-Shelf two tiered cabinet to another area because I miscalculated how much space I would need for this shelf.

One thing to note when measuring for the corner pull out cabinet

One thing I didn’t take into account when measuring was how more much clearance I would need when you pull the shelf out due to the fact that the cabinet door doesn’t open all the way (hello other corner cabinet hardware). BEWARE OF THIS when you are measuring your space. Check out the image below for a visual.

Before I installed these pull out cabinets I had to break my back to reach in and get something. Also, I can’t tell you how many times the dang tupperware would fall into the cabinet.
