We recently added garage storage using 1x6’s, 1x2’s and pegboard. It has quickly become my favorite organization upgrade in the entire house. No more digging in totes and drawers for tools. Not the prettiest thing but saves me so much time when working on projects.
We didn’t follow any plans. I saw a similar idea on pinterest and we tried to go by it. The 1x6 boards all have 1x2 underneath for bracing. We also placed 1x2 along all the edges of the pegboard underneath it (if there isn’t a gap between the wall and pegboard you can’t place your pegs in the holes)
A bit of caulk and paint finished it on up.
