4 DIY Garage Renovation Projects

Your garage, instead of being a place to park your car, turns out to be one big storage space. It is loaded with clutter, old paint cans, and other chemicals. What do you do? You might be tempted to purge. Before you do that, why not consider reclaiming your space back with these 4 DIY garage renovation projects?

Build a Tool Rack
You can begin organizing your garage by getting your big tools put away properly. A great way to do this is to build a rack for your shovels, rakes, garden tools and other tools. It only takes some nails and a few pieces of wood. Cut in some slots to stand your tools in so they are off the ground and you are one step closer to an organized garage.

Install Wall Shelves
You can easily create extra storage space by installing some wall shelves. You can certainly get pre-packaged shelves if you would rather not have to use big tools for the job. First, you will need to take some measurements to align the units properly. Next, you drill the anchors and screws in and you now have your garage shelf.

Hang a Pegboard
Installing a pegboard is an easy way to organize your garage. You can find these at any local home improvement store. Peg boards will help you keep your smaller supplies and tools in order and provide you with more floor space.

Install a Garage Exhaust Fan
If your garage is attached to your home, it can impact your home’s air quality negatively too. The gases and chemicals you store in your garage can easily get into your house if you don’t ventilate your garage properly. There is also the carbon monoxide from your car’s exhaust that you have to worry about as well. Also, garages have moisture in them which can turn into mold and mildew eventually damaging the structure and contents inside your garage. A garage exhaust fan will draw the moisture from your garage.

Nothing is worse than a cramped, hot, unventilated, and disorganized garage. Let these 4 DIY garage projects help get your garage back to being organized so you can use it for what it was intended for, your car.
