A Long Time Coming

I have been asking for shelves in my garage since we moved in, I am not even exaggerating!! I was finally able to nail down my Dad and Jason's schedules over Easter break to create what have been the best project ever. If I ever am missing, I am in the garage staring at the now almost fully organized front wall of shelves. Between the color-coded Gatorades and the bins with laminated labels, it is definitely a work in progress, but I am absolutely in love.

Here are the pictures as the weekend progressed

End of Day 1

End of Day 2

Starting to fill the shelves with the bins we had

With labels and shelves being filled in.  Still some bins to switch out and some to designate since they are just empty.

The Gatorade Shelf (notice the color coding by my OCD self)

Food shelves

I cannot thank my Dad and Jason enough for completing this project with me, and allowing me to help. I even put a nail into the ground with a 22 caliber something or other, and MAN was that the loudest sound ever!

But it was WELL worth it!! Still have to get some more bins, transfer some into matching ones, and fill the empty ones, but you get the point :)


  1. That looks amazing. I wish we had that in ours. I told my husband I would buy him new shelving for Christmas one year (and then organize the garage myself of course)

  2. Looks awesome! I love the gatorade shelf :) I am sure it feels great to be organized.

    PS - I miss you!
