    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.

    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.
