The DIY Garage Clutter Buster Guide – a guide to making garage storage systems and other garage storage ideas

Here are some tips and tricks to turn your horribly hoarded garage into a functional and organized storage space.

PV Simple

DIY Skill 3/5

Attaching some PVC piping to a wall is a great way to hang up larger tools such as spades, rakes and pitchforks and gives you a space to label each pipe to be super organized. Here’s how to make it…

What you’ll need:

– Saw
– PVC Pipe
– Backboard
– Hammer
– Nails

How to do it:

Step 1: Saw your PVC pipe into equal smaller pieces at an angle at one end.

Step 2: Attach PVC pieces to your garage wall or to a separate plank of wood.

Step 3: Add in your tools. Job done!

Ready, Steady, BIKE!

If you or your child goes biking regularly, this multiple bike stand is a perfect way to store your bikes, as there’s no need to faff on hanging them up and getting them back down again…

What you’ll need:

– 2×36 inch wood
– 30 & 17 inch wood
– 11 2×2 wood
– Wood and pocket screws
– Wood glue
– Screwdriver
– Drill

DIY Skill 4/5

How to do it:

Step 1: Drill 1 1/2 pocket holes into 36-inch pieces. Then, using clamps if you have some, glue the 17-inch side pieces into place and secure with 2 1/2 pocket screws.

Step 2: For the back of the stand, repeat step 1 but with the 30-inch pieces.

Step 3: Once again, repeat step 1 for the 36-inch cross supports. The middle support wants to be 10 7/8 inches down from the top support.

Step 4: Attach the 2×2 pieces 2 1/2 inches apart by, you guessed it, repeating step 1.

Step 5: Decorate as you please.

Portable Tool Caddy

When you’re working on a project, there’s nothing worse than having to walk back and forth getting different tools from the garage. With this portable tool caddy, simply stock up on everything you’re going to need and wheel it to wherever you’re working!

What you’ll need:

– 1 large pegboard
– Saw
– Wood glue
– Screws

DIY Skill : 2/5

How to do it:

Step 1: Saw both pieces of 2×2 in half, giving you 4 pieces. Saw your pegboard into 4 equal strips, making them the same length as the halved 2×2. These will make the sides of the caddy.

Step 2: Glue along the sides of the halved 2x2s and attach the pegboards.

Step 3: Secure in place the screws in each corner.

Step 4: Attach the 4 pegboards together.

Step 5: Add wheels to each corner.
