We worked hard to organize our garage. With all the renovations we’ve been doing lately, it had gotten really messy in there. I’ve known for a long time that I wanted to have my own personal toolbox. My husband has a tonne of tools and I hate digging among his things to try to find a hammer and a nail to hang a picture. I needed a ready storage solution! This is what I’m dealing with here, folks:
In all honesty, we haven’t built her storage wall / tool bank yet, so that’s a big reason her stuff is a mess. BUT a girl has to do what a girl has to do. It was driving me crazy … I had to organize my garage!
Since we are organizing our garage, I had it in my head when I was at the Hobby Lobby a few days ago. I saw this organizer from Creative Options in the craft storage area:
and I knew right away that it was exactly what I needed. These awesome organizers were made for craft supplies, but hack organization: I turned it into the best toolbox and hardware organizer ever!
BONUS: It’s also pink so my husband won’t be tempted to requisition it!
Let’s take a look at my new organizer, shall we?
The top basket is oversized and perfect for holding my tools.
Then there are three separate pull-out organization boxes.
Each box has adjustable dividers so you can customize the size of the compartments to fit just about anything you’d like to put inside.
I filled one with picture hanging supplies, cabinet hardware, and pieces of curtain brackets.
The smallest of the three boxes was the perfect place to organize all my nails and screws. I can’t tell you how good it is to see exactly what I have!
