My daughter asked me to duplicate the shelving and hangar set-up that I use in my garage….......for her garage.
She had bought some rickety black plastic shelves for storage, but they were not working out well. She also had a poor method of hanging shovels, brooms on the garage wall.
I designed up a system for her garage. It uses 1×12 pine boards painted white for the main shelving units. To make a good shovel hanging system, I mounted about 14 adjustable hangars on a 2×4. I also drive in some 16 penny nails to hang miscellaneous items.
The vertical 1×4’s hold the steel angle shelf brackets. I used 2.5” screws to hold the verticals to the walls. This system works for drywall, or pressed wood walls.
She is very happy with the finished system.
After 10 years or so of the black Illinois dirt blowing into a garage, you can easily remove the shelving system and re-paint it, which is what I did at my house.
