Last year, we started work on organizing our garage and we are about halfway through our total garage plan.  We’re seriously trying to get organized!  If you’ve been following along with me, you may have seen our garage pegboard tool wall that we built and a storage wall for all of my daughter’s sports equipment and outdoor toys:

We’re in the process of researching and looking at more pegboard storage options in the other side of our garage for items like brooms/rakes/ladders, etc.. and a section for gardening tools.  I have also been on the hunt for a combination pegboard storage workbench as well.

Building the pegboard storage in our garage was the best thing we have done to help us get our garage organized.  If you want to see how we built the pegboard walls, you can find that tutorial here.  Our plan can be easily modified for any size or any area in your home.

As I have been researching more storage products for our garage, I have been so blown away with how people are using pegboard for getting organized and I wanted to share what I have found with you today. As you look at today’s inspiration, just know that any of these pegboards ideas could work for almost any room. At the end of the post, I’m sharing some of the coolest pre-made pegboard storage systems with hooks that you do not have to build.  It’s amazing what they are coming out with!

Organizing Crafts

Mandy from the blog Fabric Paper Glue, created this oh so smart small craft/office organized space with pegboard:


Heidi at Honey Bear Lane didn’t have a lot of space to work with so she created a large pegboard framed storage system here for her craft supplies using pegboard:

Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts (the cutest blog name), shares this awesome tutorial for making this huge pegboard storage wall that she uses for her crafts as well (this could work for office supplies too!):


Organizing Offices and Desk Areas

My friend Laura from Bright Bold & Beautiful created a pegboard wall for her desk that she painted in a soft color and she added wall pockets for magazines and files. The great thing about pegboard is that you can continuously adjust for your needs:



Pottery Barn Teen has come out with their own office system with pegboard that could be used in adult or kid spaces:


Organizing Children’s Spaces

Create a kids art corner with pegboard like Crystal shares from the blog Stitched:


This is our bliss created an adorable (and super functional) storage wall for her son’s nursery:


Organizing the Garage

I’m looking at ordering this pegboard steel Holeyrail, Garage Organizer, Garage Organizer, 8 Foot, Industrial Quality that is only $29.00 from Amazon.  I’m still researching but it has great reviews and may be the easiest solution for all of our brooms, ladders, rakes, etc.. It also has pegboard at the top for hooking cords and the end of handles:

A combination workbench and pegboard is another way to create pegboard storage and also a work station all in one with this Lighted Workbench. This is one of teh work benches that I’m considering for us:

    Cyndy, thanks, These are great ideas and I was not familiar with the premade ones. I love pegboard and we are planning on using some in our garage as well. I think to use one above a potting bench might work well, too.

    Hope you are enjoying your summer….take care.

    Cyndy, you could knock out one of those 2-sided rolling pegboard systems in a weekend. I have faith in you, girl. But the footprint might be a bit much . . . .

    I love your ideas Cindy, I hope to use the kids corner one for my niece and nephew. I also want to try the organizing offices and desk areas for my home office. I think that will help me to get more work and school work done with ease.

  5. Your garage is incredible in the way you have it all organized! I love that you used peg boards for the wall. I’m also amazed at the number of spray paint cans you have! We have all our stuff just in bins and boxes in our garage, but seeing this is motivating me to get out there before the end of the year and get it organized.
