Batting storage


Recommended Posts

I haven’t posted in quite a while but we just moved to the Tucson area and my storage situation is different. I have always stored my big rolls of batting standing on end. Here it would be better if I could store them on their sides on big garage shelves. However it seems like a really bad idea as one side would get compressed. Has anyone ever successfully done this or should I just scrap the idea? 
Thanks

Dave,

Why not remove the shelves and install something like this with either a wood or aluminum rod so you can easily unroll the batting from the roll as needed.  https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-White-Heavy-Duty-Shelf-Bracket-and-Rod-Support-14317/206086899

You could also install this upside down, and put a bolt with a wing nut through the outer hole to hold the rod.  https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-18-in-x-16-in-White-Heavy-Duty-Shelf-Bracket-14835/202824731

I store my batting on the roll placed on the floor, with no issues.  

Best of luck to you coming up with a solution.

Thanks, Connie.  I have searched high and low and saved pictures in pinterest but haven't found one like the idea in my head.  It isn't a real idea yet, just a germ of an idea.  That is why I haven't gone forward with it.   I want to go to Home Depot and see if I can find some way to attach a rod to the legs without drilling any holes.  I keep thinking there is a way to do that.  All I have to do is find it.  If that fails, I will build one like you posted.
