Thanks so much for watching my newest video on building a 20′ long garage storage shelving unit! I hope you enjoyed watching it as much as I enjoyed making the video and the storage unit!  It was fun! Now it’s your turn – here’s the plans for the project! Some project notes: You can make your shelving as long or short as you want.   The span between leg sets can be altered.  Mine are about 5′ appart, and it’s plenty strong.  I’d go wider (6′) so that you can fit three of those giant storage totes per shelf.  According to the Sagulator you can put about 200 pounds on a six foot long shelf, made of 4 2×4 boards.  You can go taller if you want. You can add more shelves, at any height. Make sure you secure to the wall to prevent forward tipping or racking I recommend a good self tapping screw so you don’t have to predrill any holes (as I do in the video).  Try these for building the “ladder” legs –     And you can use something smaller, like these, for attaching the shelving boards to the ladder leg sets –   Share when you are done with your project, I love seeing how your projects turn out!

Take these DIY garage shelves up a notch by incorporating a piece of pegboard into the assemblage and tucking in a bench beneath to create a workstation fit for any serious DIYer.

If you feel that there is simply not enough storage spage on the sides of your garage, and that the shelving areas have already been exploited to the maximum, then the last resort measure is an overhead garage storage. The only downside of this form of storage is that it is very difficult to implement, but other than that, it can truly benefit you in the long run.

Do you need a designated area in your garage to store bins upon bins of seasonal decorations or sports equipment, but don’t want to spend on pricey store-bought units? Look no further than this elegant yet economical solution from Ana White. While her 20-foot-long DIY garage shelves are ideal for a space with ample square footage, you can alter the plans to make your finished product as long or as short as you need. Built from 2x4s, the frame and shelf supports come together easily with self-tapping screws and wood glue. After threading the boards for the shelves through the frame, secure the project to the wall, then sand and stain for a winning finish.

You don’t have to be a woodworking wunderkind to build this multifunctional marvel from Don’t Worry. Be Happy. Keep Learning. Budding carpenters and master craftsmen alike can keep garage clutter under control by screwing reclaimed 2x4s flat against the walls, then securing reclaimed boards above them to serve as DIY garage shelves. Angle-cut beams provide yet more support for the shelves, and a series of screws along the 2×4 bases accommodate rakes, shovels, and other hanging items, making this a double-duty project.

8 Great Garage Bike Storage Products Whether you use your bike daily or once in a while, a bike can be a bulky and awkward item to store. Save space and clutter in your garage by installing a bike mount and storing your bike up and off the garage floor. Don’t forget to include in your plan a spot to keep helmets, locks and other accessories close by.

DIY garage shelves constructed from rain gutters make for standout wall-mounted storage. After building and painting a frame, the savvy blogger behind Anyone Can Decorate secured the gutters to the frame and filled the rounded bases with spray paint, seeds, and other project must-haves. Inexpensive and easy to construct, this sturdy, streamlined solution makes it a breeze to find what you need, even when you’re in the throes of a project.

TIP: If your floor slopes or is uneven, as most basement and garage floors do, you can easily shim under the legs to level out your shelves.  We shimmed with metal washers to bring the wood up a tiny bit from the garage floor, allowing water damage around the legs, hopefully preventing the bottom of the 2×4 from every rotting out (and mitigating the need to use treated lumber).

If the floor of your garage is already spoken for by lawn gadgets or sports gear, look up—the ceiling of your garage possesses hidden storage potential. To maximize it, follow the lead of the bloggers at The Cavender Diary to erect this simple yet space-smart hanging shelf. A thick wooden plank creates a solid foundation for the storage unit, while chains with S-hooks—secured to the ceiling and attached to the base—help keep seldom-used supplies and decor safely suspended.

The garage shelves can take you a very long way, especially if you know how to implement them and how to efficiently store your belongings on them. However, the main question here is: why invest in a garage shelve when you can make your very own, from scratch, with very little effort? If you have decided to do so, here are some of the steps you will need to follow.
