Organization - Ball Storage

Since I brought up my garden tool storage solution yesterday, I have another little organizer that I had to share...

This one is all over Pinterest, so I can only take credit for implementing it at my home... not the idea itself.


Hubby coaches the girls' soccer and has for a few years, PLUS he plays himself, so we have accumulated a lot of soccer balls.

A few pieces of scrap wood and a set of bungee cords from the Dollarama and you have storage for all of your (larger) balls.  

Our grand total for this project:  $2!

Everyone can easily remove their balls from the rack on the way out to the game/practice and put them away just as easily.

We've tucked it into the front corner of the garage in that little wasted spot next to the garage door.

A coat of paint would pretty it up - but functionally it's perfect!

This has been one of my most popular posts - so I thought I'd better "up it" a notch by actually showing you the finished project - paint and all:

The colour choice will make sense if you follow the blog and see what else in the garage is a "surf blue".

  Have a great one!


  1. That is genius! Just like the ball holders at the store.

    1. Except made with scrap wood (free) and bungee cords from the Dollar Store. I think this bad-boy came in at around $2.
