Pegboard Organizer A pegboard organizes tools and brooms, while a metal cart serves as a mobile workbench. Adjustable shelves display an assortment of containers, including a painted wooden box that stores glue; glass jars contain small hardware. And the pan of sand on the floor catches oil drips from the car.
Did this in my large storage cabinets with ALL of my crafting supplies!!! It's all so neat, organized, and easy to use now!! And I did it BEFORE I saw this post!! HA. Go. Me. =-D
Expect more from your garage -- transform a wall into a haven for all of your gardening gear. Customize your storage with adjustable wire shelves suspended above a potting bench. Use small, clear plastic boxes to keep potting materials dry and organized, and hang long-handled tools from inexpensive clips to keep them out from underfoot. bhg.com
Storing hoses and cords on thin hooks or nails can cause them to crack or lose their shape. Five-gallon buckets fitted with a scrap of 3/4-in. plywood in the bottom and then screwed to the wall make great multipurpose holders. The plywood can be any shape, but to give it a more finished look, cut a circle slightly smaller than the diameter of the bucket. Stash the sprinkler head inside.
Make the most of the space you have, including the wall. In this one-car garage, rubber-coated hooks hold a coiled hose and ladder; bungee cords stretched between studs create even more storage. A shovel is kept on a wall shelf. Another idea: Hang bikes by their frames on ladder hooks on the wall, and use the space behind the door for storing flat items, such as folding chairs.
