How to Install Sliding Drawer Curbs

I had a pesky problem with pull-out drawers in my pantry. Wrapping supplies and food-storage containers would slide off the low drawer and fall behind it inside the pantry. You had to get on your hands and knees to go fishing for them. What a pain in the you-know-what!

The photos clearly show the Before mess and wrapping boxes falling off the drawer.

I then went out to the garage and found some perfect scrap 1/4-inch plywood. The piece going across the back could have been two inches longer, but the small gaps between it and the sides will not allow any boxes or containers past.

I used my sweet Paslode Impulse nailer to attach the plywood to the sides of the drawers with small 5/8-inch nails.

The front of the side curbs was angled back so as not to present a harsh corner when the drawer is open.

Happy Storage!
