  1. 1

    Measure the width between the skateboard wheels. Mark the wheel width on the wall. Install the wall anchors and then the hanging standards for the shelves.

  2. 2

    Place the brackets in the hanging standards. Leave enough space between the brackets for three shelves.

  3. 3

    Place the skateboards on the brackets. Use a pen to mark the spot on the skateboard for the pilot holes.

  4. 4

    Remove the skateboards from the brackets. Drill pilot holes in the skateboards, using caution not to drill completely through the boards.

  5. 5

    Place the skateboards back on the brackets. Secure the skateboards by inserting screws through the brackets into the pilot holes.

  6. 6

    Place small bins on the skateboards for your child to organize his things.

Tips and warnings

  • Hang bicycle baskets on the wall underneath the shelving for additional storage.
  • Paint the sides and bottoms of the skateboards to match your decor if you cannot find any boards that do.
  • Not securing the skateboards to the brackets can result in the boards falling and causing injury.
