Storage Space Recycling

Having completed the Storage Project, I had a bit of used material left over, like the pocket door, and the old shelving. So I mounted the door to the wall.

So it could hide the shelving. The left side has a fixed shelf, the right side has adjustable shelves.

The shelving unit is mounted on the wall with a ‘french’ cleat. Basically a piece of 3/4”  plywood that has been ripped on an angle,  having one piece attached to the wall and studs, and the other piece attached to the cabinet. Gravity holds it in place. I also attached a piece of plywood to the bottom back and ran a couple of screws into the studs.  So if it ever needs to come down or moved, 4 screws and away it goes.
