Create the Perfect Garage Wall Organizer

A garage wall organizer keeps your tools and garage items organized and easily accessible. Creating your own pegboard organizer is a great do-it-yourself project and can be completed in a short amount of time. To begin, gather the below materials:

  • pegboard;
  • furring strips;
  • washers;
  • anchor screws, and;
  • hooks and clamps to hold tools and other items.

Hanging Your Wall Organizer

First, choose the wall space to be used in your garage and measure it to determine the size of your pegboard. Using a pencil, mark the wall where the furring strips will be attached. Attach the furring strips into the studs in the wall. If you are unable to locate any studs, use an anchor screw appropriate to the material of the wall weighted to bear the weight of the project. The furring strips should be spaced approximately 2’ apart. (Note: If the wall organizer is going to bear a large amount of weight, you may want to use more furring strips for stability.)

Next, using the holes on the pegboard, screw the pegboard into the furring strips. Be sure to place a washer between the pegboard and the head of the screw.

Last, hang hooks and clamps into the holes for tools and other items. Check to make sure that is is firmly in place and then begin organizing your tools. Should you need more organizing space, repeat the process with an additional pegboard.
