Since this homemade storage idea involves using scrap wood, it is an affordable option for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money. Thanks to the design of these shelves, your belongings will be secure and easy to grab. You can use this small space idea wherever you need to save some room.  

From the blogger: "I recently spotted a little gem in the garage - a little space in between the garage doors. It was perfect for building a modular system of small French cleat box shelves. I made them all using scrap wood. I even had extra scrap wood to make a battery charging station in another narrow gap on the wall. I'm on high alert for more areas like this that get overlooked easily, and am just waiting for more inspiration to strike!"

I have used those plastic stackable bins in the past, and sometimes they just sag under the weight, plus the spacing is not always the best. This project is very sturdy and allows for you to space them out according to,you specific needs. They look great in just the raw wood color, or you could paint them different colors to help categorize their contents. Super project. Thanks for,sharing!
