Iris Huff. shelves. May 12th , 2018.
Small adjustable shelves can be built between the studs and provide great storage space for small items such as jars, cans, bottles and for organizing and storing screws and nails. These storage spaces are built by attaching a series of 1x2 wood strips horizontally to the inside edges of two adjacent studs, approximately six inches apart. Also cut some 1x4 and 1x6 pieces of lumber, slip them on top of the 1x2 where they should fit between the studs very nicely.
Because shelving units can come in so many different styles, sizes and materials their uses are virtually limitless. If a shelving design can be imagined it can probably be built. So, the next time something needs to be stored and there isn't any room, consider the possibilities that can be provided.
Now look at the remaining shelves. Select at least one or two shelves in each book case to leave blank of books. Yep. Don't put books on these shelves. Instead you're going to place some items that your truly enjoy. Framed picture of the family... a statuette... model car or ship... small plant... small lamp... you know what you like. Take a moment and shop around your house for some items that will work on these shelves. Place two items on each shelf. One on each side. The items that are a set on each shelf should be about the same size and visual weight.
Stack books on top of each other... then on each side, line books up side by side to fill the shelf. Line books up side by side on only have the shelf and place a decorative object to fill the remaining space. Line books up side by side that fill the shelf up and have some really nice looking bookends on each side of the books. Stack some books and place a small picture frame or statuette on top of them Display three stacks of books side by side. Be sure to use a different book arrangement on each shelf for variety. It's OK if you don't have a lot of books. Simply display a couple items on each shelf and leave the open space. Don't forget the top of the shelf. You have the shelves filled and organized... but one of the most neglected area of a book shelf is the very top of it. Don't leave it bare. Place a silk plant and foliage arrangement in the top center.
If there are high ceilings in the garage then there are specially designed shelving units that hang from the ceiling. These enable you to hang, and place things on the shelving, allowing vital floor space to not be used. If you decide to fit this design of shelving you will need to ensure they are not in the way of the garage door mechanism. They will also need to be fitted securely, and at the correct height often they can be adjusted to suit different requirements. Often this design of shelving is made from metal, ensuring that it is more durable and strong.
