5 Smart And Durable Vertical Organizer Ideas for Small Garage

Garages or tool sheds are prone to a messy state because one either just doesn’t bother to put every tool in its place or because there is simply no storage to place the tools in. If you are into woodworking, then make yourself an organizer or two for your garage.

5.Wooden Tool Rack

With only a few slats needed, you can make a fully functioning rack that can hold practically every one of your woodworking tools. Fasten a few slats to a frame and assemble the frame with a screw at every joint. Hold the frame squares with clamps when assembling. Make sure the last slat is oversized. By marking the edge and trimming the slat to width, you won’t have to try to exactly size every part. Make sure each hanger has a bottom groove that allows it to fit snugly. This smart vertical organizer idea for small garage can be moved anywhere to accommodate your new tools. Source

4.Make Something Out of a Pallet

Lawn tools sometimes are the main source of the mess in your garage so you need a place to hoard them all. Repurpose your old pallet as storage. Start by staining it and prying off some slats for easier job when attaching it later. Attach it to the side of the shed with framing nails and make sure to hit the studs on the other side of the wood siding. Attach the pallet to the supporting structure on the back slats that you chopped off earlier. However, if you didn’t take the slats off, screw or nail them into the edges of the pallet at an angle. Note that, it’s better if your pallet is five inches or higher off the ground to prevent debris, leaves from piling up in the bottom. Source 1, 2

3.Bins, Nooks and Hose Holder

Store all your gardening gloves, paint brushes and every little tools in bins. Hang a few bins on the wall with nooks. You can also hang your baskets so they won’t take a lot of space on the ground if you have several of them. Baskets naturally come in medium to large size so they are effective to store big tools that prone to making the garage looks overstuffed. Source

2.Fishing Poles under the Ceiling


Those long fishing poles really create storage problem if you happen to have several of them. Leaning them on the wall might not be a good idea because them will fall to the floor and your kids might step on them and eventually break. Make a fishing pole organizer that is out of children’s reach. Hang two wire racks on the ceiling. Make sure the gap between the two wires are not too long nor too short to fit both end of the fishing poles. Wire racks are really cheap so this is alternative is a must!

1.PVC for Scoop Storage

Get creative with PVC pipe! By cutting PVC pipes into 15 cm pieces and attaching them to boards, you will have your own scoop organizer. Attach two boards on the wall, one on the bottom and one about 40 cm higher. Attach one cut pipe on each board and make sure they are aligned. Secure the pipes to the boards with nails. Source
