Organize Under the Kitchen Sink, Dollar Tree Kitchen Cabinet Organization Ideas


I decided this week it was finally time to organize under the kitchen sink. When we painted our kitchen cabinets, we never finished inside the sink cabinet. We originally planned to replace that cabinet, but ended up making it work. So for the last couple years, it has looked pretty shabby. Post may contain affiliate links.

It has been a bit of an eyesore every time we open the cabinet to toss trash in the bin or reach for the cleaner. I can’t believe I didn’t do this simple little project sooner!

First, I freshened things up inside the cabinet, and it made a world of a difference. The cabinet interior walls needed some paint so I rolled on some white semigloss.

Instead of painting the cabinet floor, I decided to use black and white floral contact paper from Dollar Tree over the worn wood. It is the same contact paper I used as a drawer liner when I painted our kitchen cabinets.

I found a little caddy at dollar tree to organize under the kitchen sink. I painted our simple black trashcan and the cleaning caddy with Rustoleum Hammered spray paint. It was a little bit of an experiment to try to make them look galvanized..I just love farmhouse caddys and anything galvanized! Sadly, the sprayed plastic just looks like plain old grey…but I still think the caddy looks better than the original vibrant color it comes in! 

I actually love this little caddy! For only a dollar, it holds all the essentials for everyday cleaning.

Then, I added a Closetmaid shelf  to store my cleaning caddy and more simple wire baskets underneath hold cleaning cloths and magic erasers.

My very favorite part about this mini makeover is the cabinet door. I used command hooks to mount rectangular dollar tree wire baskets. These hold my sponges and dishwasher tablets. A curtain ring clip on a command hook holds my favorite dish washing gloves. It works perfectly!

Organizing under the sink was such a quick little project that makes me smile every time I open the door. I am so glad I took the time to finally get it done! If you are looking for more budget organizing ideas, check out this post on pantry organization. Do you have any fun organization tips to share?
