PROBLEM: My kids play a lot of sports, and they have all these long awkward sticks around the house. What do I do with them?
SOLUTION: Alex Dombroski, owner of Red Belly Board Shop in Ann Arbor, has a creative idea. Take out your drop ceiling panels and rest the skateboards and sticks (lacrosse, hurling, ice hockey) on the metal grid. What a wonderful way to store long, awkward sports equipment and it looks cool too.
HINT: You can take out all the panels or just some of the panels where you want to put your equipment.
