If your day starts searching high and low for your shoes, it's about time to take stock of your possibilities for an over garage door storage system. If the house is already littered with magazines, clothes, toys, and tools, and there is no more space for additional storage, the garage is the 'last frontier' for you. That space above the garage door can be tapped for your old magazines or shoe rack or whatever you can stow in there.
That space above the garage door is not useless. If you are a DIY whiz, you can do a lot with that space to free up the overflowing storage shelves and floors indoors. Making a storage rack above the garage door is not difficult. With the right tool and materials, you can finish the over garage door storage during the weekend.
That space will solve a lot of problems for you and if you want to use the garage walls for more storage shelves, you free your home from tons of stuff that need to be put away safely. Garden tools that are not used everyday, skis, golf clubs, old magazines, and shoes can be safely stored in the garage without using up garage floor space. Walls and ceilings are perfect places for your garage storage.
For an over garage door storage metal rack you will need the following materials - pipe nipple, pipe elbows, pipe, floor flanges, and plywood.
One more thing, be sure your storage assembly is securely fastened before you stack your magazines and never use drywall anchors.
Once done, you can paint your plywood and the pipes to give a nice look to your over garage door storage. Start stocking your old magazines, tarps, or whatever you want out of the house. Now, isn't it easy? Wouldn't you want to make your own? Once you start, you'll want more.
