Corner Storage Shelves

Now that you have a general direction for where to go with DIY corner shelves, it’s time to determine how many shelves you want. I chose to set the height of the shelving at 8 ft so that I could use full studs on the vertical members and avoid any cuts. I chose to go with four total shelves, the final one actually being the very top of the structure. I evenly split up spacing on the DIY corner shelves but then adjusted slightly so I could fit some taller items on the bottom.

These three garage storage projects—a cabinet for tools, corner shelves and pet food dispenser—help organize the clutter in your garage and open up more space. The tool cabinet keeps your workbench clear and the tools stored close at hand. The corner shelves contain bins that hold paint cans, car cleaning supplies and numerous other small items. It rotates for easy access and to maximize use of a garage corner. And the dog and cat food dispenser allows you to get those bulky food sacks off the floor and tucked away. These are all inexpensive projects you can complete in a day.

1. Frame the shelves. Just to reiterate, every project will be a little bit different, so my intent here is only to give ideas and get you started on the right track for DIY corner shelves. The process for forming the frame is pretty straight forward. 2 in x  4 in studs are used for both the vertical and horizontal shelf members. One key in reducing cost for DIY corner shelves is to make sure that you use the existing posts from the barn itself rather than adding vertical studs to the back of the structure.  The picture below shows how I was able to anchor to the existing posts. In fact, connecting to those posts will drive a lot of the dimensional requirements.

Decorative Shelving & HooksTransform clutter into stylish collections when you display photos, artwork, and mementos and more on decorative shelves; use them to add visual interest, organize and enhance the style and design of any interior space. Decorative and functional wall hooks create extra storage in your home, apartment or dorm — hang them by the entry, in the bath or bedroom and in the nursery too. Add an architectural element to any room with a ledge set — configure the shelves as you wish to create an eye–catching display. Cube shelves attractively store and display items; they add style and functionality to any interior space. Modern decorative storage solutions transform the look of any room simply and inexpensively.

Photo 1 shows you how to mark the circle for the plywood bottom. Substitute a narrow strip of 1/4-in. thick wood for the compass arm if you don’t have Peg-Board. Use the bottom as a template to mark the arcs on the quarter-circle shelves (Fig. B). Use a bucket to mark the arcs on the tops of the dividers. Before assembling the pieces, lay out the shelf locations on the dividers. Make the shelves any height you want, but making them different heights in adjacent sections simplifies the screwing process. Fasten the shelves to the two narrow dividers first (Photo 2), then set them upright and attach them to the wide center divider (Photo 3).

Photo 2: Screw the shelves to the narrow dividers Measure and mark the shelf locations on the dividers, spacing them anywhere from 10 to 14 in. apart. Align the shelves with these marks, then predrill and screw the shelves to the two narrow dividers with 2-in. drywall screws. A drill/driver bit speeds this process.

Once you have that list, I recommend spending some time to figure out how to maximize utilization of the studs to avoid waste. If you’re brave you can make all the cuts at once for each shelf. This will reduce saw setup time. In my case, I did the bottom shelf first to make sure I was happy with it and then did all the cuts for the final three shelves at the same time. Below are some pictures showing how I joined different parts of the structure for the DIY corner shelves.

2. Cut the shelves. Now that your framing is up, it’s time to put on the shelving. Once again, I can’t overestimate how important it is to do a quick sketch and make sure you’re getting the best utilization from your sheet of plywood. I chose to use 15/32″ plywood for cost savings. Because I built a robust frame I was able to go with thinner plywood and save some money. Rest assured, once you have it in place and screw it down, it gives plenty of support. Below you can see the finished DIY corner shelves. Notice that I did have to notch out the corners in order to get the plywood to slide all the back to the metal siding.

4. Store your stuff. Congratulations, you’ve just created some great, out of the way DIY corner shelves for garage storage. Now fill it up and enjoy your organized garage!

If you’re like me, you probably have a propensity to collect “stuff”. While most of it has a purpose, there are a lot of items that need to be stored while not in use. When Carrie and I put up a pole barn a couple of years ago, one of the main purposes was additional storage to help keep things neat and organized. I wanted to achieve this in a way that minimized the required floor space while maximizing storage. Another requirement was for the storage to be easily accessed, so rafter storage wasn’t going to work.

Measure and mark the shelf locations on the dividers, spacing them anywhere from 10 to 14 in. apart. Align the shelves with these marks, then predrill and screw the shelves to the two narrow dividers with 2-in. drywall screws. A drill/driver bit speeds this process.

Once you’ve chosen the number of shelves, you just need to do a sketch of the frame of one of the shelving layers. From that sketch, make a materials list with the required lengths of each of the shelf structural studs. Remember, you’ll need to multiply the final number of structural studs by the number of shelves.

I haven’t listed any material quantities since every project will be different. This DIY corner shelves tutorial will give you some basic ideas, but you’ll need to figure out quantities for your exact configuration.  The shorter screws listed are just used for the joist hangers, everywhere else I used the longer screws.

The actual construction of the framework went quite quickly as there isn’t a lot to it. I need to reiterate that proper planning will save you a lot of headaches, so take the time to sketch out the key elements of your DIY corner shelves. Also, a level is your best friend in this process. Make sure that you are leveling each cross member as you put it up.

Storage beds are one of the most obvious storage hacks for small bedrooms, but they’re also among the best. While every kind of space-saving bed will open up space in your bedroom, storage beds can give you as many drawers as a dresser.

These desks come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. Some even have built-in storage for your office supplies. They’re a great storage solution for your bedroom, if and when you work from home. All you need is a chair, though the foot of your bed can do in a pinch.

The MOLGER storage stool from IKEA boasts a clean design that can store a lot of things inside, including old vinyl records. Whether you place it up against the wall or in front of your fold-down desk, this is a bedroom storage solution you’ll constantly love using.

Instead of letting these stacks of paper smother your desk or dresser, hack IKEA KNUFF magazine files and a wooden board into a storage rack. Next, mount the storage rack to a wall and enjoy never having to clutter any desk, dresser, or counter space ever again.

The vinyl base provides an edge for the shelves. Buy the type that’s not preglued. The 4-in. wide type is most common, but buy the 3-in. wide type if you can. Otherwise, use a sharp utility knife to trim an inch off the 4-in. one.

Rather than add messy piles to your closet shelves or drawers, clean and store your extra sheets under your mattress. If you fold them well and put them at the foot of your bed, you won’t feel a pea, much less a stack of sheets.
