Default Wall Food Storage Shelf



Advertise Here

I made another efficient storage unit for canned food. This wall is in a hallway off the kitchen. It is a non-bearing wall so the studs are 24 apart. I just cut out the sheetrock between the two studs. I built a shelf unit with sturdy plywood shelves and a thin plywood back and screwed it into place. I designed the different shelf spacings to accommodate a variety of larger cans of food. Everything is visible, nothing is hidden. It literally does not take away any space from the house.

I would add a backwards tilt, and a bar or strap to prevent a can cascade.

My living room would benefit from a room divider. you could make a dual purpose room divider, if you are not hung up on decor.

Good use of an unused space!
Is it 4” or 6” wide?

How did you get those cans to lay in there sideways? ��

It’s “wall art” with the cool graphics and colors on the cans.

Small bungee cords on eyehook would keep them in place

I have the same setup in my kitchen. Another great place is the space under the staircase. We got 200+ cans of food and several packages of dry food in there. Be sure to have a 4 inches gap between the first shelf and the floor as it helps keep rodents away. Put some traps down there and have your shelves on a roller so you can pull them out for easy retrieving and restocking.
