Over on eHow: Organized Vertical Storage

Over the weekend we gave the blank brick wall above my workbench in the garage an organizational makeover. With the help of a few key supplies like metal rails, hanging baskets and S hooks I've now got my frequently used tools within arm's reach and a workbench that's clutter free.

This blank space of wall usually has a cluttered workbench pushed against it and you can see the mess that's built up on the ground above. This project was a great chance to pull everything away from the wall, re-organize and clean up. Now that we've installed the wall storage, I've got a completely clear work-surface to use now, which feels so good:

This project would also translate really well in other clutter-prone areas like a laundry or craft area. Find the full tutorial for creating the full rail system with step by step instructions and pictures right here, on eHow.
