Do you just realize that your garage is getting smaller every time you put your stuff in there? May be it is time for you to find a bigger place or buy a brand new rack for your scattered stuffs. But do not think too far ahead yet, just sort the thing out by some tools you have in your toolbox and a couple of used plywood, then let’s start making a DIY garage storage. If you have had already familiar with replacing damaged wood on your front stair, or fixing your wood fence, you will not get any trouble doing this DIY kind of activity.
The first thing you need to prepare is the tools you are going to use such as: hammer, handsaw, screwdriver, measuring tool, and safety glasses. Then, the materials you need to prepare such as: screws, nails, wood glue, shelf standards, and a couple of plywood. For the material you do not have in your warehouse, you can head to the nearest store that sells those stuffs. After all the tools and materials you need are ready, you can just start by following these steps. The first step, measure the length of the plywood fixed with the remaining unused side in your garage. The best spot to make DIY garage storage is on the wall. So, this is why you need shelf standards to hold the plywood and the stuff you are going to stack when everything is finished. After you have finished cutting the plywood, then screw the shelf standards on the wall using a coarse drywall screws, may be you think it would be easier to use nails, but nails are not designed to hold as screws do. Make sure, at least you screw three shelf standards below every plywood so the weight will hold perfectly. You can also use the remnants of the cut plywood to be used as the partition using wood glue and nails.
That is the simple step for DIY garage storage, no need to buy a branded one if you can make one.
