    Thinking about redoing the walls in my garage.

    Right now I have a half the walls in beadboards and half in sheetrock. I hate beadboards. Then I have peg boards over some of the sheetrock for hooks and hangers, some wall hung shelves and stuff.

    I am thinking of ripping everything down and put on new walls all the way corner to corner, something like slat walls or similar so I can use every inch for storage and organization.

    What are your experience with the latest wall organization materials, to have the maximum flexibility in organizing stuff?

    When I built my little shop I sheathed the whole inside with OSB. I could hang anything anywhere. Plywood is nicer, but, you know….budgets. Painted white it looked fine.

    I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.

    I like the idea of plywood or wood on the walls to fasten stuff to. I am not a fan of peg board. I would like have a tool board for my tools.

    I am still trying figure this out in my new smaller workshop.

    Look forward to see what you do.

    I am looking at slatwall panels. It’s plywood but grooved, and have tons of accessories, accessories that you can move higher/lower left and right, plus shelves, cabinets, baskets, even lumber organizers and other stuff.

    Expensive though, even a bit more expensive then 3/4″ ply and that’s not even counting accessories.

    I think the slat wall would be a great idea, personally I think it looks better than a pegboard and provides you the option to hang heavier items due to the stronger material and larger contact area between the hooks and the wall than pegboard. I have installed a prefinished slat board product behind the cashier counter at a car dealership thought it looked very clean and professional while also being versatile.

    We used a vinyl product like this in a garage renovation a couple years ago. It turned out very nice. A clean look and easy to clean.

    Looks like very solution garage storage problem. Would you do all the walls or just a couple walls?

    You make a good point much better the peg board and better for hanging heavier items.

    Really not fan of pegboard.

    Yeah , I looked at some different options like those boards , but I really found it pricey , especially when you calculate the add ons that didn’t come in the starter kit , I opted for 3/8 and 1/2 plywood and like you Jim , I painted it white also ,
    I can use hooks screws , shelves and other things , pretty wide open for anything.

    Still not what one would call “inexpensive” though is it. Man, the price of lumber these days!

    Very true , I was thinking about when I did it more than 5 years ago , plywood was almost dirt cheap compared to what you have to pay now 🤯🤯🤯

    yes plywood is crazy.

    a 1/2″ sheet of 4×8 utility grade shealthing is $40. I remember a few years ago I was looking for plywood as a hurricane was approaching, no choice but to pay premium to someone from south Miami even with price gouging, and he delivered 6 sheets of 4x8x3/4 pine to me for a ridiculous price of $36 a sheet at the time delivery included LOL.

    The slatwall panels same size is as much but not much more, at $42 a sheet.

    Even T1-11 is $63 a sheet.
