I did it! I went to Walmart and bought a shelf. The shelf was $24.88, "heavy duty" plastic. My dad said metal shelves can sometimes cave in around the center and that he has been happy with his plastic shelves. I had the option to do all 5 shelves tall, or 3 and 2. I thought the 3, and 2 were cuter for now. Once I get more stuff, I'll probably have to do 5 shelves high - and get another shelf, but this works for now. I even got my basement cleaned out in the process.
