Storage Cabinets

  • February 10, 2015


Currently I had the typical metal shelves in the garage, where I spend a lot of my time. I got tired of seeing all of the clutter on the shelves when I was working on other projects, so I decided to turn them into cabinets. I framed out the metal shelves, added some horizontal cabinet doors with supports to keep them open, and then added full upright cabinet doors to finish them off with magnetic closures. I puttied the knot holes and painted the cabinet and framing doors gray to make them stand out. Now, a much cleaner look and a place to hang a few things on the outside of the doors.
