I'm still at it. Yep, in the garage, cleaning and organizing.
And I see lots of progress.
And that makes me SO happy! :)
The bench and pegboard was a part in the garage that I didn't use much this past year. Maybe that was
the reason why it got so disorganized, as you can see in the picture below.
The first step to put order in here was by removing everything from the pegboard and bench.
I even went ahead and removed those pegboards. - The small one on the left was all bowed, and the one on the right was mounted on 2 x 4's that kept on wiggling from side to side. :(
The materials you'll need:
- 1- 4' x 8' Pegboard sheet
- 27.5'- 2 x 2's
- 3 ½" screws to attach frame to the studs on the wall.
- 1" screws to attach pegboard to frame
- ¼" washers
- 2 ½" screws to put together the frame.
I replaced the small piece of pegboard with a full sheet. The frame was put together using Kreg jig
Find the studs on the wall. Mark their locations so you can attach the frame to those.
Making sure it's level, attach the frame with the 3½" screws.
Installing the pegboard was the hardest part for me. It was kind of impossible to hold the entire sheet with one hand and with the other drive the screws. Mr. RLC was out of town so, I had to call my 13 year old son to drive those first screws for me.
Ahhh, it looked awesome! Did you noticed I gave that left wall a coat of paint?
I wanted to frame the pegboard, but after looking through the garage, my eyes were set on those CD holders laying on the floor - two years there were enough, time to put them to good use! ---> They got trimmed and some supports were added on their backs.
Even though they're heavy, they weren't hard to install because the pegboard frame served as support.
The divisions were nailed in place and little plastic bins ( Easter Baskets 😊) are now holding lots of random stuff. Oh, a chalkboard label was added to the baskets.
Then, it was time to bring the tools and make it look pretty. I changed the direction of the bench, I like it better because I'm not giving my back to the main door.
The stain cans fit so nicely in those little cubbies. I ❤️ my Ryobi tools!
This is how that corner is now looking. The scrap wood cart is to the left.
Hey, as usual, the messy before...
And the After with a happy me. :)
