How to Use Wall Studs for Storage in a Garage
By: Joe Truini
An exposed stud wall in a garage is a great place to store items. You can attach 1x4s horizontally between the studs for shelves.
To store longer items standing up:
- Cut a 1×4 slightly longer than the distance to the outside of two studs.
- Attach the 1×4 to one of the studs with a single screw so it can swing up and down.
- Make a cleat from two offset pieces of 1×2, and screw it to the adjoining stud to act as a catch for 1×4.
- Attach a piece of lattice to the studs near the bottom to keep items in place.
