Solving a Shelving Need
My teen son was in desparate need of more shelving in his room to hold books, CDs, stereo equipment, a small TV, lava lamp, and all the assorted stuff he collects. Tall, deep, and sturdy bookcases can be very expensive! We went to a local home/hardware store and bought heavy duty metal shelving units, the kind usually used in garages, for $35 each. They were powder-coated a nice blue-gray. After assembling them, securing them to the wall, and adding all of his stuff, they looked really great. He loved them because they looked "high tech."
