Bin Rack

Can anyone help me out with a plan for the storage of plastic tubs that measure, well of course they vary but could modify to fit my needs. But in general about 31"long x 18" wide x 19" tall. I would like to have individual spaces and maybe stacked 4 tall and i suppose about 10 tubs long (my wife has quite a lot of decor for all 4 seasons).
It would go against a finished insulated garage wall. I suppose 2 x 4 construction. some of the bins probably weigh close to 60 lbs Maybe more. I know its probably quite simple, but would like sturdy and nice looking finished product. Thanks for any help.

I saw this post sitting here for awhile so I thought I would share a project that I did for a customer with a similar Idea.
I did one project for a customer that wanted there bins stored. they were planing on using the garage wall as you are. so I came up with the idea of making shelves that hung from the ceiling.
I went and bought that white coated wire shelving from HD and joined them together with 1/4-20 machine bolts and fender washers. hung them down with slot ed 1-1/2" angle . looks great. ran them in rows spaced apart so the containers will slide out with no problem.
Just an idea. I hope this helps BOB

I have built a few of these for my clients in two different styles. One was a very simple shelf unit for the bins to sit on. The other was off set dowels to let the bins cock forward for easy access without removing the bin.
