This garage organisation project included making custom heavy-duty brackets for a floating timber workbench and shelves.

The project

 

My husband and I built shelves and a workshop space in our garage. We extended our garage so we wanted to utilise that extra space while still being able to fit two cars in there if we wanted to.

 

My husband is a boiler maker by trade so he made up some heavy-duty brackets at work. We used a timber benchtop from Bunnings for the workspace and large boards of timber for the shelves.


I also bought some plastic storage tubs from Bunnings and labelled them the old fashioned way (cardboard and permanent maker) so that everything is easy to find.

 

It works a treat, and the garage now stays clean and organised a lot longer.
