You can find vintage garden gear, such as these outdoor spigot handles and spring clips, at flea markets, antiques stores, and online for as little as $1 each. Use them to organize your garden gear with this fun and functional tool rack made from old wood molding, flea-market spring clips, and brightly colored outdoor spigot handles (The Old Time Junk Shop; etsy.com). All you need is a free morning, the tools in a basic kit, and a little creativity and elbow grease. To mount each handle, use a ¼-inch galvanized lag screw threaded with a corresponding nylon spacer, both available at hardware stores.
