Four easy garage DIY projects to tackle these school holidays

It’s the school holidays, which means there’s no better time to tackle some home DIY projects just in time for summer! Whether it’s those odd jobs you’ve been putting off or it’s just time for a refresh, here are four easy DIY projects to tackle these holidays.

Install wall shelves

Shelves are a great way to maximise the storage space in your garage with minimum effort and are fully customisable to your needs. Most importantly, shelves can free up valuable floor space in your garage. Shelves are also perfect for keeping dangerous items out of reach from children and for storing those small, easy to lose items such as bicycle repair kits, drill bits and accessories.

Here’s a great tutorial from Bunnings on how to build garage shelves.

Create a slat wall

A garage slat wall is a durable and practical way to move your items off the floor; making the most of your bare garage walls. A slat wall consists of panelling with horizontal grooves. You can use buckets, hanging baskets, hooks and shelves to neatly organise your tools and equipment.

Bunnings has a great selection of garage storage solutions including slat wall systems. Check out their range.

Paint the floor

With cars, tools, bikes and kids, the garage door can get scuffed and dirty very easily. Painting the floor is an easy way to give your garage a fresh, clean look, and can bring some life back into your garage, just in time for summer!

Install an automatic garage door opener

After a long day, the last thing you want to do is jump in and out of your car to open the garage door. A Chamberlain automatic garage door opener makes getting home easy, and with the Chamberlain myQ range, the innovative myQ technology allows you to monitor and control your garage door away from home (handy for when you forget to close the garage door, as it means you can close it with the push of a button remotely!).

It’s simple to install in a few hours; all you need is a ladder, socket wrench, spanner, screwdriver, tape measure, rope and a power drill. The perfect DIY job for the long weekend!
