DIY Clipboard and Garage Wall Organizer for Gardening Gloves

DIY Clipboard and Garage Wall Organizer for Gardening Gloves

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a TERRIBLE habit of losing my gardening gloves. After some yard work, I’d come into the garage, rip off my gloves, and fling them wherever I could before going inside. It has led to countless trips to the hardware store to buy new gloves – wasteful in money, time, and well…gloves! So, it seemed high time that I create a DIY clipboard or a garage wall organizer that would be specifically dedicated to work gloves!

And I’m talking the most simple, basic hanging clipboard you can imagine. With just salvaged wood and vintage clothespins.

I took a trip to Habitat ReStore for a piece of salvaged wood. It didn’t have to be barnwood or anything with a lot of character. In fact, I wanted a plain board that could be painted over.

For the wooden clothespins, well, I already had a jar full of lovely old weathered ones that I had picked up on one of my Junkin’ Journeys. And how wonderful that I was FINALLY using some of them in a project!

Now, all I needed to do was combine my salvaged wood and vintage clothespins into a DIY Clipboard that would hold my gardening gloves, making them easier to find the next time I needed them.

Building a DIY Clipboard or Hanging Clipboard

Since the price was written on the salvaged wood that I had purchased, I decided to give it a quick wash of paint. Just enough to give it some color…but by no means a thorough job.

I like the fact that I can paint something quickly and get that “distressed” farmhouse look just by being lazy!

Then, I gathered a handful of vintage clothespins, marked where I wanted them on the newly-painted board, and used wood glue to attach them.

Of course, I could have spent time measuring for careful placement, but this going to be a wood clip board for some garage storage or shed organization.

Therefore, perfection is NOT required.

To help the wood glue do its job, I applied clamps as I went along. These will ensure that the wood glue bonds as tight as it can between the salvaged wood and the vintage clothespins.

Cottonball, of course, was fascinated by the process.

Gluing the wood clothespins for a DIY Clipboard

I let everything on my wood clip board dry/cure/set overnight.

Next, I screwed in a couple of D-ring hangers into the short ends of the board.

Now I just needed to finish up my DIY clipboard before hanging it in the garage!

Lastly, I threaded some braided picture-hanging wire between the two D-ring hangers! And that was it, the DIY clipboard and garage wall organizer was dready to be hung up in our garage.

It works perfectly as a hanging clipboard for gardening gloves, work gloves, and anything else that is sweaty and gross!

Such a great way to upcycle a board of salvaged wood or scrap wood that you may have laying around. 

And as a 2019 update, this wooden clipboard has been hanging in our garage for nearly 4 years and has held up perfectly. A LOT of glove clipping and unclipping has happened over the years and it’s as good as it was the day I finished it.

You know how I love me some upcycled organization and/or storage! And you know what? I think it looks pretty cute, too. Bonus!

  9. What a great idea! I’m gonna make one for my laundry room. All those mismatched socks need a pretty home while waiting to find their mates. I might also make one (or two!) for my sewing room. I so often have ideas on slips of paper that get lost in the shuffle. Having them hanging would serve as a pretty reminder. Thanks for sharing.
