I’ve been trying to figure out a way to store all my spray cans, cleaners, and oil in the garage. On traditional shelves, it’s hard to identify the cans towards the middle/back. Also, with my exposed studs in the garage, I was considering how I could keep cans from falling off the back of a mounted shelf. Then it hit me—why not line my wall with cans?
I grabbed all the 2×4 shorties I could find, and cut them maybe 3/32 longer than the space between the studs. I used a mallet to get them into place, and DONE. No screws, no legs, no glue—just one cut per shelf and a bit of friction. I used 2×8s cutoffs where I wanted some extra space (big paint cans, anti-freeze jugs, etc)
Easy access and lots of extra room!
