Hubby Craft

This one was made by my beloved hubby.  He made me a sliding shelf for my under-the-sink-garbage.

He was kind enough to record the whole project with my camera.

It all started with a simple impulse buy at Ikea.

They had these drawer pulls on sale for $1.99 a pair.  We cut the wood, and attached the pulls.

We (and I do mean HE) added the little rail.

So now I have a drawer for my garbage.  No more pulling it our when I want to get into it.  Beats the $50 to buy one at the big box stores.

The grand total for our one?  About $12.

Do you have anyone who makes nice things for you?  Tell me about it.

Where I Party:


  1. love it! great job. i do have some one, but he's to far away to make stuff right now! lol sigh.

  2. I love that. Not sure my husband is quite that handy. :)

  3. Just wanted to note if there is anyone hoping to learn from this project. The rails do work; however, they are a bit stiff, probably due to the added weight (they are meant to be side-mounted). We sprayed a bit of WD40 which helped a great deal. Also, not reflected in the picture is a third rail I added to the center to make it a bit sturdier when fully extended.

    The Ikea we go to has a few hundred of these drawer pulls for sale, definitely a good buy: never know when you'll need to add a pull-out feature to a piece of furniture. Chandeen has already requested adding them to her "Roadkill Dresser" to make the drawers easier to pull.

  4. What a wonderful/brilliant idea. Love it! Thanks for your comment on my fruit basket. It is a gift for our financial planner who went above & beyond in providing some services for us. I do give fruit baskets a lot! Everyone loves fruit, right?

    Warmly, Michelle

  5. Your husband did a great job.
