Garage organization is a hard thing to come by. It takes a lot of time and effort to execute a garage organization project. In addition, it can sometimes be costly.

A storage wall can be a great addition to any messy garage. Storage walls can be the inexpensive system to help you get organized and finally optimize your garage space. This guide will help you build easy shelves to hold plastic bins and other items of your choice. In just one day’s time, you’ll have the storage wall of your dreams! The required tools for this project is a cordless drill, framing square, and tape measure along with the items mentioned in each step.
Step 1: Mark the parts for quick & easy assembly- Cut the frame parts into your desired length and mark where the rails will be screwed to each length. Do the same for the smaller shelving parts.
Step 2: Assemble the frames- Use the edges of the plywood to align the frame to make it easier to screw together.
Step 3: Screw on the shelves- Install the shelves into each frame. Work with another person to make it easier, otherwise you’ll have to hold the frame against the wall.
Step 4: Fasten the shelves to the wall for sturdiness- Screw the units to the wall to make it more secure. Screw it through the top rail to make it the most stable.
Step 5: Install cleats for slide-out bins- This step makes it easier to access your items after storage. Hang the bins from cleats by screwing them in and using a spacer to mark the cleat’s location.
Whichever route you take, consider hiring an expert garage organizer to simplify your organization process.
