Our garage doubles as our workshop, so we don’t have a ton of space for our tools. It has become a huge problem Honestly, we needed an organization solution really bad!

So I partnered with Build Something to draw up plans for a tool shelf that would solve all of our organization and storage problems. And I came up with this awesome DIY tool shelf!

Tool Organization

I had a few must-haves for my tool storage shelf. I wanted to make sure everything has a place. Because if something doesn’t have a place, there’s no way it’s going to get put away.

Tool Organization

I decided to build little cubbies to hold all of my favorite power tools, so they are easy to grab, and then easy to put away too.

Tool Organization

I love how all of my drills, nailers, saws, and paint sprayers all have their own little spots. It just makes my heart so happy.

I also knew I needed a place for small parts storage. So I picked up one of these small parts organizers from Amazon, and a couple of these little portable storage containers as well.

They will be great for loose screws, nuts and bolts, and other random little things that will make a mess around the shop.

Tool Organization

I also knew I wanted a set of drawers to hold things like tape measurers, safety glasses, drill bits, and all of my jigs.
