A Garage Clean Out Challenge…Week 2: Organize
I knew I wanted a soft mint color.
But I didn’t want to buy any more paint.
I know what I will do…
I’ll mix a cup of the turquoise paint from my laundry room
into a can of white paint.
Introducing what I call…Laura’s Mint Ice.
Not bad, huh? Better than just drywall!
So I now officially have the left side of the garage completely painted.
I then organized all my holiday signs and donated some that I never use anymore.
I also have moved a bench and bookcase over to the corner
that will be my future mud room zone.
The bench was from my son’s nursery and it is going to go white.
I also want to add some coat hangers for jackets and backpacks.
This space is coming together…slowly.
Besides the paint idea, I also had another revelation while I was cleaning.
I found this old tool organizer from my teaching days.
I used it as an alphabet stamp organizer.
I was about to throw it out because obviously
I am not going to be teaching anytime soon.
And then a ton of bricks hit me………WAIT!
You actually USE tools now!!
I can use this organizer for what
it was originally designed for…duh!
And I did just that,
complete with custom labels!
So no…I am not finished yet.
And yes…I have a ton of work to still do.
On to week 3!
