Yesterday, Mr Chiots and I spent most of the day cleaning out the garage. It had gotten a little out of control. Since we’re going to start building our little teardrop camper soon, we needed to tackle it first. We have a large side workshop attached to our garage which was packed full of stuff.
We moved everything into the main garage and then moved the stuff we wanted back in, organizing as we went. Mr Chiots has a workbench and area on on side for all his tools and other stuff, and I have one wall devoted to gardening. I also have 3 shelves on which I store my collection of terracotta pots, burlap, row covers and other gardening supplies. All of these benches were here when we moved in, I added the shelves above to this area. I simplly added a coat of paint to make everything look clean, it’s not the best, but it’s usable (it is the garage after all).
I’ve been collecting vintage galvanized trash cans and putting them on a wheels. I use them to store vermiculite, potting soil and anything else I buy in bulk. I like that they roll right under the bench and out of the way!
Everything is neat and orderly now and that makes me happy. We should have plenty of room for working on our projects and finding things should be a snap now!
