Storage Cabinet

demodemo Posts: 153
I am looking for a storage cabinet to put on my porch to store all my eggcessories.  Plate setter, pans, racks, ect.
Looking for something 5-6 feet tall with shelves.  I live in a humid climate and would like something weather resistant, but if it is cheap enough, I could change it out every 3-5 yrs.  Any thoughts?

    All the big box home improvement centers carry what you describe.  I have gone the same route.  I think this is one of HD's house brands of plastic cabinets.  Price was reasonable.  Quite humid here in south FL. I have had this for several months now. Think it will last for a while, but not permanent.  I would reconsider the color if buying again.  The light color shows every charcoal fingerprint.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    That as above or even the deck boxes that could double as seating for some not so gastrominaclly endowed individuals......

    I'm following along.  I too want something for the exact same reason.  Since I have the XLBGE I need something with shelves that are at least 24"x24". Been to SAMs & Lowes & local hardware store to no avail. Storing everything in my garage on the workbench is a PIA.  About ready to build something with a shingled roof.

    This one from Sams is 24" deep and 48" wide (larger then the first one I posted)

    So far the only thing that has killed my deck boxes (southern exposure in Atlanta) is a hail storm that cost me a roof and 2 cars because of the damage to them!  And simply ordering a new lid is all it took to repair the deck box.

    Thanks!!!  I did see that at SAMs and may buy it for in my garage to store my egg stuff.  But, still holding out on finding something that would look good on the deck close to the egg.  My wife saw it and said its not going on the deck as it would look like crap.  Our home is cedar sided.  Looks like a log home.  Thanks again!  I may end up with that.

    Yesterday I purchased a Rubbermaid large vertical resin cabinet at Menards for $199. Sale ends today.  It is deep enough to hold my XL accessories and is tall enough I won't bump my head if I duck just a little. Not a rebate deal either, I hate when they get to use my money for 6-8 weeks and also pay tax on the extra purchase price.

    Try this one from Costco - would match a cedar shingle nicely (but more expensive!)
