After ten years of waiting, planning, dreaming and saving, we finally built a garage. So for the first time ever, we have a real garage to organize. It’s kind of fun (although I’m not an all out organizing kinda girl.) And what do we have the most of to organize in the garage? Tools. Drills, saws, clamps, you know… building tools. So we found a super simple solution that was absolutely free – a tool organizer made from a pallet.
DIY Pallet Tool Organizer
This particular pallet was super easy to remove boards (it’s not always an easy task!) We were lucky enough that the nails were spiral shank nails (versus the traditional ring shank nails.) In just a few minutes we had removed all of the boards from the back of the pallet, which was the dirtiest side of the wood.
Then we used screws to attach it to the studs, using a level to properly hang it. After that, it was just all about putting all of the tools we needed to organize up so they’re easy to find and easy to put away.
