We place our things in our garage and immediately close the door behind us. Once we need our stored item, however, we can't find it anymore! If you want to keep your garage organized, then you should create this DIY Garage Storage Rack! This DIY storage rack is a great way to keep all of your gardening and woodworking tools organized. You won't have to go digging for that hammer or rake anymore because this garage rack will keep everything in order!

Materials List

  • 3-inch nails
  • 1 pallet
  • 22 oz. framing hammer (16 inches)


  1. Take pallet and use framing hammer to drive in some 3-inch framing nails to hold the pallet in place.

  2. With the pallet in place, cut a 2 inches X 10 inches piece of wood to make a shelf, and nail it next to the pallet. This shelf can be used to store pruning tools or garden shears.

  3. Nail a simple piece of 1-inch X 1-inch wood to the pallet, underneath the shelf. This will hold additional tools, like axes and sledgehammers, in place, so make sure to hang at a height that works with your tool length.

  4. Once the shed organizer has been built, load it up with all of your tools!
