Now that we have been living in our new home for over a year, there was no excuse for the state of our garage.
First project for 2015, was to clean and organise our ‘little bomb zone’.
It took over three days (started on the 31st of Dec), but I have finished. Feeling pretty good about it too.
This will actually save us money, as we can find what we have and hence limit the need to buy more. I don’t have to tell you how this benefits our planet.
First we cleared the garage floor of ‘stuff’ – it all went onto the driveway.
Can you find our Little One amongst the mess?
Now we have space to get creatively tidy:
Using a huge left over lattice sheet, I made a hanging wall for tools.
Using scrap wood lying around, I created a ‘spice rack’. Then old glass jars were used to sort screws, nuts, bolts, nails, latches etc. Everything now can be easily seen and hence found.
Using scrap wood planks and saved baby Nan formula tins, I very easily created shelves within the existing bigger shelves.
Now I am sitting on the front verandah, enjoying the satisfaction of a finished project.
What summer projects are on your list?
