Garage Shelves


This was a project to build storage shelves and install cabinets in our garage in July of 2017.

This house had no attic space, so I needed to come up with a solution to store all the bins we had in our old attic.  I wanted to be able to park one car inside the garage on a regular basis, and have the ability to park both cars in the garage if needed, so I wanted to have everything against the walls and utilize the whole wall from floor to ceiling.  So I built these shelves using 2x4s and 3/4" plywood.  I put plastic furniture sliders on the bottom of the 2x4s that touched the garage floor to prevent any liquids that might spill on the floor from leaching up into the wood.  On the right side wall, I supported the shelves from the ceiling vice the floor to leave some open area to store items of different heights on the floor under the shelves.  

I brought the Kobalt cabinets with us to Tennessee but I believe the shelves are still in place at the old house.
