Say goodbye to your disorganized tool bench! More ideas for garage organization: www.bhg.com/...
All Hung Up Add a bit of color to your garage storage. Paint squares on a pegboard to designate spots for specific items. Hang the pegboard on wall stud and equip it with bins for an innovative storage system. The sideways bins stow often-used accessories that are not easily hung from hooks, such as gardening gloves and hose nozzles. Mount a large bucket to the pegboard for a modern take on a hose reel to boost function.
Paint peg boards a bright color and use to store garden tools, dust pan, etc. No entryway in the house? Put a mudroom storage cubby in the garage. Put a shelf rack near the door to hold dog food, cleaning supplies, paper towels etc.
Portions of this Garage Storage idea would be great in a bedroom. The pull out shelving would be great for accessories like shoes, purses, belts and so on.
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.
