Imaginative Wall Storage Ideas

I store all my dry foods in glass bottles, often in quart sealers. I ran out of room, so I opened up a small blank wall by cutting into the drywall. This exposed the 2x4s. Between each blank space, I installed shelves made of 1x4s. They rest on drywall screws, two under each end. These now hold about 40 sealers or canned goods (my mini pantry). I opted to go two spaces wide, but one could make just one long space.

This is a wonderful idea and especially if it's an interior kitchen wall but even if it were exterior you could easily insulate! I wouldn't recommend this if you don't own the home though - LOL! ;-)
