Thank you Crates and Pallet for sponsoring this post and giveaway! As always all opinions expressed are those of Domestically Speaking. We were in need of some Garage Sports Organization. We are a sport’s family! My husband plays on a couple softball teams, my son is playing summer basketball and my oldest daughter is on the All-Star Softball team plus another softball team. So needless to say we have sports gear… lots of sport’s gear! We are about 1 month away from school starting and with the start of school comes the start of fall sports. Our sport’s gear was needing some organizing!
Did you know that you can find awesome crates at Home Depot? Yep, Crates and Pallet have their products available at Home Depot (mostly online). You now can find their large crate in all The Home Depot stores! These awesome crates makes creating garage storage SUPER easy!
We started by laying out the portion you see here in this photo.
We laid them out on the ground and attached them to each other using a nailer.
In this section we used:
- Two 27 in. x 12.5 in. x 9.5 in. X-Large Wood Crates
- Two 13.5 in. x 12.5 in. x 9.5 in. Medium Wood Crates
- Two 18 in. x 12.5 in. x 9.5 in. Large Wood Crates
Once they were attached to each other we used wood screws and attached it to the studs.
We decided to run a 2 x 4 along the bottom for two reasons.. first to add some extra support once all those crates were full and second to support the two 18 in. x 9.5 in. Natural Pine Tall Wall Crates. Instead of them hugging the wall we wanted them to protrude out so they could hold equipment easier. We used smaller wood screws to attach the tall wall crates to the x-large crates along the side and we also attached them to the 2×4’s underneath it.
Then we added two 18 in. x 15 in. x 9.25 in. Vegetable Wood Crates to the center to hold the basketballs and footballs.
Then we filled them in.
Plenty of room for everything. I added some hooks along the 2 x 4’s for holding chairs, tennis rackets, etc.
We are loving our functional Garage Sports Organization! Once we had a layout we were able to put it together pretty quick… it’s an easy afternoon project.
Are you ready to tackle some garage organization too?
