Re-purposing Kitchen cabinets in my Garage


Hi guys,

I just acquired the wall mounted cabinet pieces in the photo I included and I want to mount them in my garage for storage. The pieces are all solid but not too heavy besides the piece with the slots. The garage isn't finished (aka: the studs are visible). I've never done this before and I want to do this as cheaply as I can. Looking for recommendations on how to mount them securely in my garage.

Thanks for the help!!

Mitch

What's the plans for the garage?
Before anything goes in I'd install all the wiring over the cabinet.
Your going to want to add outlets over those bottom cabinets.
Insulate, sheetrock then install the cabinets.

No plans to insulate and sheetrock the garage, and there are outlets already in place. I only took the two bottom cabinets on the left in the picture. I'm going to mount the cabinets directly to the studs and I'm considering stacking the cabinets in some fashion to take up space in just a section of the garage. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks joecaption for the feedback!

I would first attach a 1 X 4 board across the 2X's at the height of the where the backer is inside the cabinet so you will have something to screw to.
If those are just particle board cabinets I would flip the cabinet before installing and install some plastic nail on chair leg protectors.
Particle board can soak up moisture like a sponge.

The upside to insulating and drywalling the garage is keeping the moisture from wrecking the cabinets... Otherwise the space between them and the wall becomes a point for moisture to develop. Exceptions might be if you're in a bone-dry climate, which updating your profile with a location would help determine...

set first wall cabinet screwed to stud, set next cabinet fastened to stud then fasten cabinets together with thru bolts (use 4 bolts top and bottom front and back). then repeat as long as each cabinet hits one stud it will be solid
