Garden tools can get a bit messy. So when you're looking for a place to store spades and rakes, why spend serious cash on a storage system that is going to get covered in dirt?

A set of hooks down low hold a coiled hose, while a hanging pot is perfect storage for loose gloves or rags. This is one weekend project that will get you excited for gardening season! 

What You Need

  • Foam paintbrush
  • Stain/sealer combination
  • Wooden pallet
  • Pegboard wall hooks
  • Drill
  • Drill bit
  • Screws
  • Magnetic knife strip
  • Hanging flowerpot

Step 1: Apply Stain

Use the foam brush to apply stain to pallet. Apply in small strokes, moving with the grain of the wood untill the entire surface is covered. Let dry. 

Step 2: Map Out Display

Lay hooks and garden tools tools on the pallet to see what layout works best. Be sure to leave enough room between hooks so you don't knock off sharp pliers or spades while reaching for a rake or a shovel.

One you have your placement, drill holes for hooks. Do not insert hooks yet. Use screws to attach magnetic strip for tool storage

Hang the pallet on the wall by securing it with screws and drill. Once the pallet is stable, insert the hooks into the predrilled holes. Finish by placing tools, garden hose, and hanging flowerpot on the garden organizer.
