Here it is after our purge (in the bitter wind and snow!)
My husband had 2 requests for the home, the rest of the design decisions he pretty much gives me free reign, so of course I’m going to do everything possible to grant his 2 whole wishes:
* A big tv downstairs in the family room
* BOTH cars in the garage. He thinks if we can’t get both cars in, we have too much stuff.
He was right.
That’s why I need him.
I had the spray paint downstairs, but I spray out here, so I moved them up.
recycling center right outside the back entryway:
A few things:
This is our Goodwill crate. Anything we need to get rid of goes in here, when it’s full, we take it down to donate.
If you can, put some old carpet remnants leading up to the doorway to help get as much stuff off of shoes as possible. (or to protect the floor for a quick spray paint job)
Hang a ball so when your windshield touches the ball, you know to stop the car. Then you won’t go crashing into bikes, the freezer, the lawnmower, etc. (not that this has ever happened to me…)
Put a strip of duct tape down so the kids know that their bikes need to be on that side of the line, otherwise they get ran over.
The holiday decor bins are up in the attic. In our last home, my garage walls were lined with them.
Now, of course the million dollar question: Can we keep it this way??
What are your best tips for organizing a garage?
