How do you store paint, solvent, flammables??

Im looking for some solutions to storing various paints, solvents and flammables in my garage. Ive grown quite a collection of aerosol cans that need proper storage. Any suggestions? I just picked up a new welder and want to make sure the garage is in order before I start using it.

I keep all my stuff above freezing in a metal cabinet. Nothing fancy just a plain cabinet with two opening doors. I've seen several nice pieces I would like to have in my shop on the net, speciality storage just for aerosol cans. Kinda looks like a wine rack.

An old freezer or fridge makes a great paint storage..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

I keep all my paints and other chemicals in a metal cabinet during the spring months till early winter. Then I put them in a metal cabinet in my storage room in the basement of my house. If you do not have a garage kept at 50 degrees during the winter, most paints and putties etc, will go bad. I have heat in my shop and only turn it on when I go out there, so when I am using any paints, I just take what I need out to the shop when it warms up.
