11. Hanging storage system
Instead of adding extra shelving to the walls of your garage, you could opt for this original structure. You can make this storage system using tubes and connectors that attach to your garage’s ceiling.
This stainless-steel structure will help you declutter your room and can be used to store skis, scaffolding, and garden shovels.
12. Garage tool organizer
Your tools can pile up quickly in your garage! In order to find what you need when tinkering on things, it’s important to be well organized in both summer and winter.
You can make this tool organizer using our tubes and connectors. Just add a few hooks to hang a hammer, brooms, and gloves. This project is simple and efficient and replaces shelving in a garage.
13. Garage storage for boxes
Unused items, old clothing, and Christmas decorations often end up taking up too much space in your garage, even if they are crammed into plastic totes.
This structure, built with white tubes, is an ideal way to store forgotten items. You can modify this shelf by designing it to accommodate a specific number of totes.
14. Ski storage
If your family is active, especially during the cold season, you’ll need storage space in the garage. Sports equipment takes up a lot of space, so it’s better to build a structure in which to store it.
You can get inspiration from this custom-made ski storage system. By adding swivel casters, you can move the unit from the garage to the car.
15. Shelves to start seeds
This shelf can be installed in your garage to start your seeds. We suggest that you build a wall shelf using our tubes, by following this detailed plan. Then, under each shelf, you attach hooks strong enough to hang a fluorescent lamp for seedlings.
Pssst! If you have a green thumb, you can also build a vertical urban farming structure.
16. Wood storage bin
If you heat your home with a wood-burning stove, you’ll need space in your garage in which to store firewood.
That’s right, this stainless-steel structure can be used as storage, but that’s not all. If you add swivel casters with brakes, this ingenious system can also be used to transport wood from the garage to the fireplace.
17. Sports equipment storage shelf
Sports equipment that is used on a daily basis needs to be kept in an accessible area of the garage. This shelf has been designed for children to store balls, yoga mats and snowshoes. Gone are the days when your garage looked like a gym locker room!
18. Pool equipment storage
This storage system can be placed in a corner of your garage in the winter or close to the pool in the summer. It can be used as storage for pool toys and towels. As pool equipment is often cumbersome, it will now have its own place in the garage.
19. Swing-out storage for the garage
Some items stored in the garage are more cumbersome than others. This swing-out storage unit has been designed to store sheets of wood or other types of large items.
The system works like a file folder. A galvanized tube attaches the container to the wall. Attach wheels under the container so that it can be swung out from the wall when needed.
20. DIY garden hose trolley
Your garden hose often finds its way into your garage. This storage unit, made with tubes and connectors, can be adapted to your needs.
