34 DIY Garage Organization Hacks

As we continue to look at some amazing DIY Garage Hacks, I hope you are finding some inspiration for ways to clean and organize your garage.

If you’re anything like me, you would have a repeating cycle of cleaning up the garage, making it spic and span, and then two months later the junk would slowly but surely pile up again until your garage was unrecognizable again.

These DIY Garage Hacks are intended to help you to clean and organize your garage, and keep it that way.

It’s far too easy to ignore the garage, unless you are parking in it on a regular basis. But who does that??? Or is not being able to fit the car into the garage just a me thing?

Jumbo Tape Dispenser

Get More Info on this DIY Project

This clever little DIY project gives you the perfect place to store AND dispense the tape you need, including packing tape, duck tape, masking tape, and more.

The built in re-purposed hacksaw blade also provides a nice edge for cutting off just the amount of tape you need, or you can remove the entire roll (filler block and all) and take it where you need it.

If I was to make one change to this DIY project, I would make it so that the either the individual or the entire tape dispenser could be removed from the wall and taken to wherever you needed to use the tape.

Copper Clamps Tool Storage (The Do Not Touch Tray!)

This piece is more decorative than it is functional (I pity the person trying to remove any of these tools from their resting place).

But if you have a bunch of unique or antique tools that you want to keep without taking up much-needed storage space, consider displaying them like art inside the garage.
