Now, who doesn’t love a little garage organization??  I have been working on getting my shop revamped for the last few months.  I am slowly tackling every nook and cranny to make the most out of the space and use every inch 🙂  One of my latest projects to tackle was upgrading from the pegboard system I have been using as tool storage, to the Rubbermaid FastTrack system!  Can we talk about how much I LOVE this system??  Check out how I set it up!

Rubbermaid Garage Organization

This is my wall of tools that don’t get used as often… Minus the radio!  I love how I can hang my radio and it’s perfectly in reach all the time!

Garage Storage Idea

And the hanging baskets are perfect for holding my bagged tools and shop towels.  I also keep my Clorox wipes in there for when I spill stain and paint… Which happens fairly often 😉

Garage Wall Storage

This system has been a lifesaver.  No more stinkin’ silver pegboard hooks falling on the ground!  Game changer.  It was crazy easy to install too.

Everything runs on a rail system.  Each rail is a silver metal piece that is covered by a black plastic piece that slides over it.  The first step is attaching the silver rail to the wall.  I found and marked the studs in my wall, and then used my impact driver to drill 2.5″ screws into the studs.  A drill works perfectly for this part too!  I used my level on this part as well to make sure each rail was straight.

Rubbermaid FastTrack Rails

After attaching the silver piece, you just slide on the black plastic piece right over it.

Installing Rubbermaid FastTrack

Then, each attachment just clicks onto the rail.  SIMPLE.  AWESOME.

And, the attachments easily slide on the rails making it super easy to customize.  I love it.  Check out the rest of the space!

Garage Tool Organization

Love how these little hooks hold my jigsaws and sander…

 And remember my lumber storage rack I built?  I was using the pegboard system on the back to hold my drills and other tools I use on nearly every project.  Not anymore!

  3. This would be perfect to better organize my garage and store things out of the way. I really like the flexibility of being able to change the hangers to accommodate different tools for each season.

  4. I definitely would have to say, just like you, we would definitely need to store our tools that don’t get used very often!!! Plus the ones that do hahaha!! This looks like a dream come true!!!

  5. We recently had to move in with the in-laws. I brought all of my tools and wood storage with me. But with 5 cars and toys for 3 kids the garage is over flowing leave very little for building. I would LOVE to have this to be able to organize!!!
    I love the idea of putting the drills, etc on the back of the wood cart.

  6. I would organize all my hand tools in the garage. The peg board just doesn’t cut it for larger items like drills, jig saws and my nail guns. I’m a freakishly organized lady anyway, and I think my shop should look just as put together. Let’s face it, i’m the one using the tools anyway 🙂

  7. We just moved into a new house and organizing our garage is on my to do list! Used a Rubbermaid closet system and loved it!

  9. I would love to be blessed with this. I am a trying to organize my garage. I use to do woodworking and build things but when my ex husband left 6 years ago, I lost all my tools. Since finding Shanty 2 Chic I have started purchasing ryobi tools and have started woodworking again and want to create many new pieces for our new home. My 6 year old loves to help but my garage is very unorganized and I am starting from scratch on getting a system together! This would be a perfect system for the space!

  10. My hubby just told me we needed this system!! What perfect timing for a fabulous giveaway 🙂 Yard equipment is where we would start! Love having everything organized!!
