Would any members here mind showing me a picture or two of your paint shelf you use in your modeling room? Right now I'm using a plastic pullout drawer and the way my desk is arranged, its getting to be less and less convinient :-)

There was someone here who used pipe insulation. It is a long foam tube. He cut it to the length of the height of his workbench. Then sliced it length-wise to 'open' it (not through both sides). He then nailed throught the backside into the workbench. He then wedged the bottles into the opening.

Good for similar size bottles and tight spaces.

There is an article describing this technique at aircraftresourcecenter.com. Go to the "Tools and Tips" page, go to the Painting link. The article is by David Rapasi.

I just used wooden kitchen silverware drawer inserts, attached to the wall with screws--picked them up at Lowe's. Each insert is about 17" by 12" and forms 4 shelves about 2 1/2" high.
