I've been spending the warmest days of this winter right here. Not too many though. :/
If the day is bright and not so cold, the garage is my spot.
But on dark days like yesterday, when it rained the entire day, I prefer to be indoors, even though it wasn't that cold.
How is the weather in your neck of the woods? I'm so looking forward for Spring!
Anyways, I titled this post garage organization, but as you can see below,
is far from it. Garage in dismay might be a proper title.
While I was working on my son's room, I moved many of the tools to that area of the house, the hall upstairs was a construction zone, my bedroom a storage area for all of the contents of his room. In general, that second floor felt chaotic during the entire renovation.
So, now that I'm bringing tools and pieces of wood back to where they belong, I'm once again faced with another mess.
But first, let's talk a bit about this space, the garage. I've only done a couple of posts about it, without showing the entire area.
I like it! It's a big space. This is how it looked when we moved in:
Ahhh, a big empty space!
Some shelves were installed, mostly to store my daughter's toys, but as time passed, they weren't enough.
This whole unit was built soon after, and those were pre-blogging days. No tutorial for that one. ;)
They hold a ton of stuff. However, I need to remove lots of things that we no longer use and organize those shelves.
The other side of the garage is awful! I cannot get in there.
I need to organize all that yellow area. Workbench, tools and stuff on the floor.
As you can see I got some new tools, so there is lots of motivation! :)
One of the things that bother me the most are the pieces of wood on the floor, followed by the folding table and more wood standing right next to the working bench. It's hard to reach some of the tools on that board.
See the demilune table? One of the first things to be rescued from this mess.
In the far left you can see a bit of the table that I never finished stripping. Gotta do that during Spring... or Summer. :/
Ha, I see those CD shelves - I had no idea what to do with them. I picked them up alongside the breakfast table set - A free Craiglist find. I'm gonna try to use them to store something.
For now, my first task will be to pick the wood from the floor.

Wish me luck!
