Build Instructions:
http://www.instructables.com/id/Shelves-for-a-Shed/

I looked at purchasing brackets but I couldn’t get the exact size and the price seemed high for something so simple – plus I had a few excess 2×4s from the last job. Mainly, I wanted to utilize the area in the upper portion of the shed while keeping the floor clear for yard/garden equipment. There are multiple variations of this style bracket online. I took a little different approach by utilizing the existing part of the shed (top plate) for support. I don’t know the load capacity but I’m quite sure it will handle any of the items (tarps, paint cans, etc.) I plan to place on the shelf.

You know, I’ve built several sheds and never thought of building a shelf that way. What a great idea. I think that should serve your purpose just fine. I’m not sure if I’m envious of you or not, I really like moving stuff into a new shed, but trying to figure where to put everything is sometimes fun, and sometimes a pain. Either way, great idea, and great job.

Thanks. I have mixed feelings on moving stuff around. Sometimes I think a trip to the landfill would be the better option :).
