The Family Handyman
Organize your paint brushes, scrapers, roller frames, rags and paint cans with this shelf made from two 1×8 boards screwed together and reinforced with metal shelf brackets ($1). We built ours 38 in. long to fit three brackets of sliding spring grips ($4 each at a home center) that we mounted under the shelf for tool storage. Build and attach this shelf to a shop or basement wall, and you’ll thank reader Steve Sampson for enforcing orderly storage on all your far-flung painting paraphernalia.
