Lately, we’ve been posting quite a bit on web design and development. If it’s not something you’re really into, I apologize. We’ll be switching back to home projects full time very shortly. If you have been enjoying them, or at least putting them on your “must read at some point” list, we won’t be abandoning them completely. In today’s post, we wanted to share with you a super quick project that’s already cleared up some much needed garage floor space: stroller storage.
One of the goals of our garage spruce up effort is to remove as much junk off the floor as possible. We’re doing this primarily for two reasons: 1) we want the garage to be a tidy space and 2) everything that stays in the garage eventually gets covered with spiderwebs and bugs. To that end, Lisa suggested we relocate the strollers that have been hanging out on the garage floor or leaned up against the cabinet.
After thinking about it for a while, there is really no ideal location for these things, at least in the long term. Then again though, we’re probably not going to need baby strollers hanging around for the next decade.
Our interim fix? Hanging them up in the basement stairwell. It’s not perfect, but the space is unfinished, so dirty strollers fit in well. Plus, it’s pretty close to the garage, so Lisa doesn’t need to carry it clear across the house.
I bought a couple of these Blue Hawk hooks available from Lowes. They’re only a couple bucks each.
After locating a stud, I pre-drilled using a bit slightly smaller than the diameter of the hook threads and screwed it in by hand.
The strollers hang neatly from their hooks.
Eventually, when we finish the basement, we’re going to need to come up with a better solution. For now though, this works great.
