I need help with my drawers.
NO! Not my pants, you idiots! My kitchen drawers.....Dodgy

I don't know where else to ask for help so I thought, what the hell, I'll ask forum members for advice. Tongue

I have a kitchen drawer with sliders from like the 80's or something. (My husband is super busy so I am trying to figure out how to put in new sliders my little ol self.) This particular drawer has no side walls to mount the slider to so I'm trying to find a slider that's mounted on the underside of the drawer but attaches to the back wall with a bracket. At the moment it has an old slider that's attached to the top and and kinda hangs in mid air...it that makes any sense.

I can't find a slider that mounts to the back wall with a bracket at the big box stores. This drawer is driving me crazy. It keep coming out of the slider and falling backwards.

Any advice?

We can't afford it. We're having a new roof done in a few weeks so the kitchen remodel is going to have to wait another year or so. In the meantime this drawer drives me crazy. It's the drawer that holds all the everyday kitchen flatware so it's used all the time.

Have you tried fixing the old slider?

RE: I need help with my drawers.
I find our flats method works best. Just leave all the dishes in the sink. And once they're washed leave them on the bench to dry. And when you need one take it from the dry pile, use it, and put it in the dirty pile on the other side.

Who the fuck needs drawers?

RE: I need help with my drawers.
Instead of drawers, consider racks of trays that you pull out. They sit on shelves where the old drawers were. Luan or similar plywood lines the bottoms of the individual "coves" where the baskets sit. You can put homemade signs on the baskets to tie them together and tell you what's in them.

RE: I need help with my drawers.
Is there another drawer you can switch to, until next year? Maybe not as convenient, though. Or maybe take the other drawer and use instead of that one, in that position? Or is the slide the bad part?

RE: I need help with my drawers.
I needed to fix a couple dresser drawers that wouldn't slide any more. I found the parts I needed at Amazon. I pulled out one of the drawers that wasn't broken and took some measurements, got the parts, and had them all fixed in just a few minutes.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Are you familiar with reddit?

reddit - DIY

reddit - DIY - drawer slides search

It's a good place to start. There's also youtube. Tons of DIY tutorials there.

hmm. one on reddit says something about a rear mount drawer slide.
