We purchased a great shed at the beginning of the summer, but now that it's Fall we realized that we needed to get everything truly organized for the winter. I am so excited about quickly and easily my husband put this together.

  • (1) 4x8 plywood project wood
  • (8) 8' 1x3's
  • (3) 8' 2x4's
  • Tools, nails, etc.

Tutorial

First we cut our wood and created a frame for the left side from (2) 8' pieces of 2 x 4 woods. We couldn't transport wood big enough to span the whole length of either side in the shed so we needed something to support the left end of the shelf. The right end would be attached to the wall studs.

Here's the rectangular frame. For our particular shelves, making this meant creating a rectangle with two 12" pieces and two 72" pieces. You may want to adjust yours depending on the size of your shed. The height needed to match the shed studs height.

My husband screwed it into the wall stud. The wood along the bottom is just there temporarily to make sure the spacing is correct.

On the right side, towards the corner, he screwed a piece of wood along the stud to make everything flush on that side... this is where the right side of the shelves will attach. On the right, you can see where he's adding a board to support the right side of the shelf.

I didn't get a good picture of the shelves being built, but he used 1x3's to create the shelves EXACTLY how he made the left frame. Once he created his rectangle, he cut a piece of plywood to fit on top and screwed the plywood on.

Once built, the shelves were placed on top of the supports on each side and screwed into the wall studs behind the shelves. They just sit on the supports- those aren't screwed in.

This is the final product. They're very sturdy- my husband and son were sitting on one shelf together before the other two were finished.
