This motivation really came from David Grimes project
It was a great idea for me because I was constantly buying cans of paint, stain, wood putty and glue that I already had. Keeping this stuff in a cabinet just wasn’t working. And while having extra inventory on hand can be nice, for me it was more clutter and confussion. The shelves are a little different shape than Davids but the idea was his and a good one.

The shelves are rough cut fir and the shelf supports are from a two inch cedar plank that I had. The supports are screwed to the wall studs and capped with buttons. No finish. I am lucky to have twelve foot high ceilings. The paint on top is seldom used and accessed with a ladder when needed. The glue, stain and such on the two bottom shelves is accessed with a step stool.

Thanks for lookin, mike…..........

Very nice. You can’t have too many shelves.

Nice work, i was debating between two storage options for cans, my current which is to store them in the last place i left them, or similar shelving to yours except recessed between the studs. Still not sure which one to go with. haha

WOW- THAT’S A LOT OF OSB! I think I know what you could use some of that extra paint on…
