When my kitchen was remodeled there was a tiny 5.5” space left between the cabinets and door to the master bedroom. That little space was just crying out for some kind of embellishment!
Steph & I made this a while back: the Intentional Junk Drawer. Since then I’ve been wanting a type of intentional junk drawer for my own home as Steph kept the one we made.
I have a collection of wood boxes from various yard sales that I thought would be perfect to create some vertical storage in the tiny 5.5” space. Once the boxes were sorted by size, I set out to work!
Glue boxes together. I glued mine with the front edges lined up when I should have made sure the back edges were lined up. I ended up having to add another box to line up with the deepest box so that the arrangement would lay flat against the wall. There is a significant space behind one of the boxes because it is less deep than the one on the bottom and top of it which ended up being a good place to stash my sunglasses. The wood frames hide the other space issues.
What’s in the box?
