Nick’s been gone all week on business, and he’s finally home today! So we’re all in great spirits. And the weekend is before us! SUCH a great feeling.
Today, I’m going to show you a little organization that’s been happening in our garage. And let me tell you… it was in DESPERATE NEED.
There are a LOT of things that need to be done organization-wise in our garage, but I needed to start with a little corner that would have my stain, paint, sandpaper, and all those regularly used items to be at my fingertips. We started by painting this grungy cabinet white and putting some handles on it.
You know I love using vertical surfaces for organization (it doesn’t take up ANY ROOM!) based on this, this, and this project, so I was excited to use some of our stash of 3M Clear Mounting Tape to slap some things up on the side of this cabinet to make it functional and visible! After making sure that all surfaces were clean, I applied a white board for notes, a file holder to hold our different grits of sandpaper (my FAVE part by far), and some other little things to make our garage-lives so much more convenient.
And I organized the inside of the cabinet so that all my stain is together, poly, strippers, deglossers, glazes, primers, mineral spirits, etc… so much better! Collective sigh of relief? Thanks for being so invested.
It’s amazing how having an organized space actually PROMOTES creativity. I find myself being drawn to the garage to create again… which is glorious after my very unproductive summer.
Do you guys find that being in an organized space boosts your mood and energy level? The psychology of it is baffling, but I’ glad I realize this about myself. Let the creativity RESUME!
