If you’ve ever taken a look into your neighbor’s garage while you were driving down the street, you’re not alone. The state of someone’s garage can say a lot about them and when yours is a mess and you see your neighbor has the most spotless garage you’ve ever seen, you kind of feel guilty. To take away the overwhelm while you’ve got the motivation in you still, check out these garage organization and DIY ideas that’ll make your garage a 10/10 in no time.
Work Bench & Peg Board
The creative use of this peg board seriously blows my mind. If you have a bunch of tools, try making a peg board like this, adding storage cups and bins. Make sure that you color coordinate to get the cleanest look! If you have all your supplies but they look all over the place, there’s nothing a little spray paint can’t fix for you.
Tennis Ball Indicator
I think this is just so clever. Even if you hadn’t just reorganized your garage, try attaching a string to a tennis ball so that you know exactly when your car is perfectly parked inside the garage. Don’t worry, the ball won’t scratch your windshield.
Lawn Maintenance Peg Board
Here is another great example of a peg board being put to use. Try getting rid of all the extra tools that you have not used in the past year and just hang up your essentials.
DIY Jumbo Paint Dispenser
You never know when you’ll need tape and usually the case is that you don’t have free hands to maneuver the tape roll. Keep one of these fancy little holders around your garage to make your life a little easier next time you find yourself needing a sticky fix.
Car Cleaning Supplies
I’ve always had so much trouble finding my car cleaning supplies when I need it. No more! Put your supplies in bins on the wall and label the bins accordingly so you know exactly where to look for your needs.
If peg boards are a bit too busy looking for your taste, you could always try slate, especially if you’re going for a farmhouse style.
Always have your tools ready to go and where you can see them. By using a magnetic board, you can display all of your stuff, getting rid of the hassle of shuffling through drawers.
Spray Paint Organizer
Now that we have established you might need some spray paint to get all your tools the same color, you’ll need a place to put those cans. Get yourself a nice cheap shoe holder from the store and you’ve got yourself a really clean and attractive storage unit.
Galvanized Paint Bucket
Use an old bucket to wrap your gardening hose around. The bigger the better as it makes it easier to take out and put away.
Storing your bikes properly can make a world of change in your life. Not only does it keep bikes from falling over onto your car, it keeps them safe from your children who may want to go on a joy ride without your permission.
