Free plans to DIY a kitchen cabinet door organizer for paper towels and cleaning supplies! Make this little organizer for under $10! Plans from ana-white.com
- 1 - 1x6 @ 6 feet long
- 1 - 1x2 @ 2 feet long
- Either 2" brad nails OR 2" trim screws OR 1 1/4" Pocket Hole Screws
- 4 - Small L brackets with 1/2" hardware (for attaching to cabinet door)
- 2 - 1x6 @ 18 1/2" (sides - cut top end off in a curve)
- 1 - 1x6 @ 12" (bottom)
- 2 - 1x2 @ 12" (rails)
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

I love this idea. I'm not a big fan of having the paper towel on the bench either. I think I might just do this, altho I will have to change it a bit so I can attach it with command strips (renting). Thanku again for sharing your awesomeness ;)

I moved into an apartment two years ago that had something like this under the sink. I mentioned to the landlord how that was convenient and she said "Oh that's only in this one, the previous tenant put that in and then left it so they didn't have to pay for the door". You might talk to your landlord about it if you don't mind leaving it if/when you move out.

Instead of the flimsy paper towel holder, you could use a hole saw and drill holes up top to run a dowel rod through. It would probably hold the roll on better.
