I shouldn't have titled this part 1 - I think I just jinxed this project! Anyways, our garage is a mess. So messy, in fact, that once my dad drove right by our house while the garage was open knowing that Tom or I would ever keep a garage that looked like that. To my credit - it is my husband's domain and I don't really touch it.
During Christmas break, Tom started to do something about it. He drew up plans and thought about the needs of the garage - now and 10 years from now.
We already had these shelves against one wall - they are getting a complete overhaul. Look how effective they are!
He started by building a work bench along one wall. His saw is sunk a bit so the wood can lay flat.
Tom and I organize very differently and as much as I'd like to get my hands on this - it's his and this is how he likes it. He doesn't want it pretty or tidied up - he has made it clear to me this is how he likes it. And since I'm a good wife, I let it be.
Next up are these shelves - we want them more of a custom size. There is too much space between each shelf.
I'm assuming we'll be working on this for the next year. Tom works a lot and on a lot of Saturdays - which means project time is limited, but this is something he wants and I would LOVE!
Stay tuned . . . .
