These double-decker shelves can be used to store paint, cleaning supplies and you can add hooks to hang items such as extension cords and brooms. This simple woodworking project will cost you between $20 and $100, depending on what materials you already have on hand.
Think of your stairwell as an extension of your basement. If there’s room, add a couple floating shelves and hooks for a little extra storage.

Since moisture is a common problem in basements, recycle the cardboard boxes and go with plastic bins to store seasonal items or things you don’t use regularly. Plastic bins will do a better job at keeping moisture out and are easy to label and move around on shelves.
