This is one of those instructables that inspired me to actually DO the same thing. I've done this before at another house and am always giving such wasted spaces the stink eye!

Space was a little tricky with the location of our double bowl sink, but I managed to keep enough space above and below to keep door storage from interfering with anything on the shelf inside and barely millimeters of clearance between the tops of bottles and the sink.

I did make the error of building the crossbar too narrow to fit common width spray bottles on the new shelf, so I ended up cutting the dowel out to install the aluminum bar on the front. It's sturdy, but it provides a bit of flexibility for stuffing slightly oversized bottles in if necessary (but I sized it right for everything in this pic).

I also installed a shelf inside the cabinet. (That I clearly put less effort into making look good.)
