Using Pegboards As Storage For Your Garage
Pegboards are incredible storage devices that help to save lot of space. A pegboard is a perforated hardboard containing evenly-spaced drilled holes to store items like workshop or garage tools, among others. The board is made of hardboard, wood, or metal, and its pre-drilled holes are used to hold pegs and hooks in order to support various tools. A typical pegboard is prepared of wood fibers and some amount of resin. The board is fortified with a thin coat of linseed oil and is then heated at high temperatures to polymerize the oil. This increases its durability, impact resistance, hardness, and tensile strength. If you have a garage, you must have a pegboard as storage that will hold all the garage supplies. Using such a board is a wonderful way to avoid a messy and littered garage. It will also help to keep the functional area clean and tidy. It can be used for hanging tools, like, hammers, pliers, wrenches, screws, etc. These can also be used for storing large garage supplies like batteries. If you have a laundry corner in your garage, you can have a board that holds laundry items, like, detergent, clothespins, iron, fabric softener, etc.
As garage storage, you can also hang small tin boxes to keep small garage supplies, like, nuts, bolts, and screws. Install long shelves on the pegboard to place bottles of lubricants, flashlights, batteries, etc. While hanging a board, which holds the supplies, hang it near the work bench, so that you can access the supplies quickly. Use a board that will properly hold all the items, since many of these supplies are heavy. You may take the help of furring strips, and install along with the pegboard to provide extra support, so that all the tools can be hung properly.
