Cassity saw a wood cabinet door storage bin in Better Homes and Gardens magazine way back in 2012 and asked if I could make one like it.
You bet I can! And of course, we’ve got the plans so you can, too.

Cabinet Storage Bin Plans
The 8-page detailed printable woodworking plan includes
- full materials and tools list
- beginner-friendly instructions and diagrams
- how to adjust the bins to fit the width of your cabinet and/or the depth you need
These bins are designed using affordable 1×4 boards and installed using 2″ mending plates for easy and durable installation.
Even at 2021 lumber prices (!), it’ll cost you only $10-15 max to build TWO of these cabinet storage bins.
All you’ll need is a jigsaw and a circular saw (though a compound miter saw makes the straight cuts easier and more accurate, plus then you can build all of these, too!).
Assemble using a hammer and nails (and recommended wood glue) — though again, a brad nailer is faster and opens up a whole slew of other projects you can build more effectively, too!
Where to Use Cabinet Door Storage Bins
These bins are a great size for using in a bathroom vanity, kitchen cabinets, or a pantry cabinet. (Though we do recommend pantry roll-outs if you can because we love ours!)
Organize smaller items in the bins using small storage trays and containers.
Bathroom Cabinet Door Storage
There usually aren’t any shelves in a vanity, so these under sink organizing bins that attach to the door helps solve the problem of organizing smaller items (like soap, hair supplies, and toilet paper) in a deeper cabinet.
Kitchen Cabinet Door Storage
In the kitchen, a set of these cabinet door organizers can hold tin foil and plastic wrap boxes, paper towels, container lids, etc.
Cleaning Closet or Pantry
Like in the image below, you can store cleaning supplies, spray bottles, and even your whole cleaning binder in these door storage bins!
(And if you love that paper towel holder, we found one like it at Home Depot or at Target. High five!)
