Every once in awhile we have been working on organizing our garage. It started out filled up with so much stuff. Most of it we wanted to get rid of for either garbage or give-away. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture at the beginning, but here is process part way through. The future plan is to create a storage area and a workshop, as well still having room for our car.
The house came with a bunch of shelves, some are in rough shape. We are planning on moving some of the white bookcases from inside the house and using them out here. Everything in the photo below is going to the dump (minus our garbage bins of course)!
The following weekend we managed to get to the dump, so this corner is now empty and ready for adding some of the white bookcases. So much more space now!
This past weekend, we set up a bunch of the white bookcases along the corner, and moved all the tools from inside on to them. I think they look a lot nicer and they are more convenient for finding things. Plus, it has given us a place for the endless white shelves in our house.
We set up a temporary workshop to build the shelves for the upstairs living room beside the new fireplace. It's a pretty ghetto workstation, but it's working well for now. Eventually we are going to get rid of the metal shelves, seen in the photo below, and set up a proper work table and saw. Until then, at least the garage is cleaner and more organized than before.
