Does you kitchen cabinets get out of hand really fast? Same here! Especially my corner cabinet! All the organizers I have looked into either don’t fit my cabinet or cost an arm and a leg! So I decided to tackle this messy corner this month with a few other blogging friends for Our #diyprojectchallenge. This months theme was organizing under $50. Which was timed perfectly with my nesting phase at the end of this pregnancy.
Does your cabinet ever look like this? Then you should check out this easy tutorial below!

Tools I Used
- Hitachi C10FCG 15-Amp 10″ Single Bevel Compound Miter Saw
- BLACK+DECKER JS670V LineFinder Orbital Jigsaw with SmartSelect Technology
- Drill bits
- Ridgid 5.5 Amp Corded Compact Power Trim Router With Micro Adjust Dial R24012
- Router bits
- DEWALT DWE6423K Variable Speed Random Orbit Sander, 5″
- 3-IN-ONE 100% Dry to Touch Dry Lube Drip Oil, 4 OZ
- Tape measurer,straight edge, pencil, safety gear
- 15 – 14” dowels
- 25” circle from plywood
- 5 – 15” 1X2
My top shelf is 14″ from shelf to top
My bottom shelf is 12″ from bottom to top
The door opening is 14.5″ x 26.5″
The inside has a panel in the back to make it more square to the front (messed me up some) so its only 21″ deep from the point of the opening to the back
Move the shelf to the very top of cabinet. Put it on pins to have plenty of room to work on the bottom. Unless you can get yours out. Then just remove it completely.
We had just enough room for a 25” circle. Cut out circle with a jig saw.
Cut out pie piece where the door is. Should look like pacman.
I talked my husband into routing the edges for me because this baby did not like all the noise.
Sand with orbital sander. ( baby really didn’t like that)
Fit turntable to the pac man with self tapping sheet metal screws No 8 (use 3/16″ drill bit for holes) I also had to clip the end of the screws so they wouldn’t rub on the turntable
Remove turntable from pacman circle
Connect turntable to cabinet
Oil ball bearings
Reattach pacman to the top of turntable. I used wooden skewers to find the holes in the turntable through the predrilled holes in pacman
Move shelf to the very bottom of cabinet (because ours would not come out of cabinet to work on)
Cut 1 x 2s
Drill holes in 1 x 2s 5″ apart
I placed the 1 x 2s on the shelf where I wanted them with tape then drilled the inset holes in the shelf.
I connected the 1 x 2s to top of the cabinet with the dowels in place so I could level them out.
Silicone ends of the dowels into the holes
Add pots and pans
