Chances are your garage's perimeter is lined with somewhat unsightly, possibly mismatched metal shelves. They're most likely obscured by gardening tools, sports equipment, camping gear, and other seasonal or rarely used paraphernalia. If you're brave enough to take on the Holy Grail of weekend projects—cleaning out the garage—you might be able to empty out one or two of those shelving units. Rather than leaving them in the garage only to be refilled with stuff you should probably toss anyway, let them find rewarding second lives in unexpected places throughout your home. Even if that big garage clean out isn't in the cards, metal shelving units offer quick, easy, and inexpensive storage for your laundry room, kitchen, or living room. Whether you're buying new or repurposing old metal shelves, we've found some uses for these sturdy, functional fixtures that are so ingenious and attractive, they might just get you in the mood to reorganize your home.
