This is a simple project that is easy to make and it can be saved to use from year to year. It gets bonus points because it is super inexpensive to make!

My neighbour had a pallet from a delivery of gyprock or plasterboard on their front yard. I asked if they were going to use it and they said no, I could have it if I wanted it. So I dragged it home (literally) and affixed it to the wall to stop it falling over. Then in went the tools. We had previously used hooks but did not have sufficient hooks on the wall for all the tools. This is 2 metres or 6 feet in length and holds all the tools. Not a new idea but one that I was happy to adopt for…

My hubby dug 4 post holes after measuring up the box springs base to ensure the po…
