Our garage makeover is done!
Over the last two weeks, Tal and I have decluttered and painted our garage, as well as installed organizational systems for our tools, bikes, and equipment:
For years, Tal and I have struggled to keep our garage neat and organized. This time around we decided to invest the necessary time, energy, and money to do it right. Tal and I spent several weeks discussing how our family uses the space and mapping out a new layout for our garage makeover. We spent a lot of time measuring each zone and thoughtfully considering which organizational systems would best meet our family's needs for the next 5-10 years:
For our garage makeover, Tal and I chose a neutral, masculine, and utilitarian color scheme of gray and black. We painted the garage Urban Sunrise by Valspar:
Tal assembled this shelving unit, which holds our tools, paint supplies, and gardening items:
We created zones for bikes, mowing equipment, and lawn tools:
Tal ripped off the old carpet on the garage stairs, pulled out the staples, puttied the nail holes, and lightly sanded the stairs. Then, I gave the stairs two coats of black paint and a coat of poly (mixed with a nonskid additive):
Our garage makeover cost around $600, including paint supplies, storage containers, the shelving unit, and organizational systems and hooks.
Tal and I love coming home to a pretty and organized space!
