    Everything in this slideshow

    • Build a gardening station

      A tabletop, cabinetry, light, and coat rack combine to create a perfect spot for potting and storing gardening essentials.

    • Use a coat rack to store garden tools

      Some garage storage systems look hard and masculine, but a repurposed coat rack ($12.99) keeps this gardening station organized while giving the space a feminine look.

    • Install an industrial wall sconce for extra light

      If your garage lacks natural light when the door is down, add an industrial light ($29.99) for optimum safety and productivity.

    • Include cabinetry for closed storage

      Potting soil stays nearby (but out of sight) thanks to a base cabinet ($113) that also supports the tabletop. Bulbs and seeds have a cool, dry place to camp out for winter months in the wall cabinet ($87). For extra storage, screw jar lids to the bottom of the wall cabinet -- it's an easy way to keep twist ties and other supplies contained.

    • Top the base cabinet with a tabletop

      A tabletop ($45) built into the corner gives the gardener of the house plenty of room to pot small plants and do prep work out of the elements.

    • Make clean-up easy by cutting a hole in the tabletop

      Keep the tabletop clear of dirt and gardening scraps by cutting a hole one end of the tabletop. A trash can placed below catches waste and makes clean-up a breeze.
