Rather than making your stuff fit your shelves, make your shelves fit your stuff. Just follow these step-by-step instructions for installing adjustable shelves.

Materials and Tools:

adjustable-shelving kit
cordless drill with magnetic screw tip
level
measuring tape
pencil
safety glasses
stud finder

Steps:

1. Install the top rail of the kit by screwing it into the top plate of the wall. Wooden-stud walls always have a top plate along the entire length of the wall; you can drive screws anywhere within an inch of the ceiling. If you're below that, you'll need to find studs with a stud finder.

2. Clip the vertical adjustment anywhere along the top rail.

3. Position the shelf brackets along the verticals as desired.

4. Clip the shelves into the brackets.
