How To Build Pantry Shelving

Insert with a screwdriver the screws in the holes of the bracket, as to be 1/4 (0.5 cm) over the edge. Then align the bracket in the right position using a laser level, or a regular level. Next, use a hammer and hit gently the bracket, as to leave smooth marks on the wall. In this manner you will be able to make holes in the wall, in the proper location. I did the plans and that typo messed me up.

Adjustable shelves (metallic or plastic holed vertical supports, slip-on brackets and shelves) are proprietary products. They come in different sizes, styles and weights. They are often used inside wardrobes, cupboards and pantries, as they’re not very glamorous when stuck onto a visible wall space.

Since you just painted, I recommend using tape to mark your studs rather than a pencil. Remove any existing shelves and shelf hardware. Try to remove everything gently to minimize damage to your drywall. 1 strip will be cut to match with width of your shelf. The other two will be the depth of your plywood – 3/4″.

Or, if you’re more into books than clothes, you could always turn your walk-in closet into library shelves. Cut it to the length required if it’s not already done. Since the shelf has little support, it needs to be flush against a wall, or have some sort of similar flat backing.

Plus, you will need one placed at intervals for support. I recommend that you place a support at least every 48″ of length and more if you plan to place heavy objects on them. Using that first mark, I continued to transfer guide marks at the same interval down the wall. On my particular layout, I wanted to space things so that my workbench will be centered.
