Hi friends!!! I hope you enjoyed the beautiful long weekend! We were thrilled to have our son back home, and spent some great family time together. The kids and I have actually headed out on our annual trek to Tennessee. We’ll take our time getting there, then spend the week with our dear friends in Nashville. Follow our Tour de Junk Food on InstaGram (@cassiesugarplum).
I’ve been showing you the Garage overhaul, bit-by-bit, and today it’s finally all complete! Well, maybe not complete-complete, but now it’s my new happy place.
Once we upgraded our builder-basic garage door for only $15, things looked good on the outside, but behind those closed doors was a hot-mess.
We organized the Spraypaint, Tools, and new Shelves…all of which was a huge improvement, but I just couldn’t stop there. I decided I wanted to have a little fun, and create a cheery spot to greet us everyday.
The white pegboard was just begging for some color, and more storage containers.
For small items like craft brushes and pencils, I wrapped a recycled soup can with coordinating washi tape, drilled a hole in the back, and hung it on a hook.
I switched up the labels on the shelves, and used more coordinating washi.
I also have labeled paint swatches for every room and project in the house, so they new hang from a cup hook screwed into the shelves, for quick reference.
How about this little corner of organized bliss?!?!
Oh that door, how I love thee!! I figured there’s no harm in going color-crazy in the garage, right? Oh who am I kidding, the other side of this door is already pretty crazy (it’s the Mudroom).
I created a small landing zone for things we need quick access to…like
sunscreen, bug spray and a flashlight. There are also some fun hooks
for things I don’t necessarily want in the house yet…like sweaty hats
and wet towels. My daughter loves this bag I made, and keeps it stocked with art supplies for long afternoons at the ballpark.
The old doormat was pretty sad, so I spraypainted stripes on it for new life. I may go back and add a monogram like this mat we made.
Thanks to this Monkey Bar system, even the scooters have a new home, away from my ankles! Along with 4 bats, a hitting stick, 8 full-size balls, a bike pump, and an extra hook for bags! (Don’t forget, I’m giving one away here!)
It was a sweaty month getting all this done, but so very worth it!!!
I’m sharing more details and organizing tips from our garage in my contributor post for the adorable, Jen at I Heart Organizing. Come check it out!!
I love the idea of using a soup can to hold all of my little brushes. Thanks for sharing!
So jealous of all this lovely organization!!! I want to torch our garage and everything in it right now, it's such a pit. Love the blue touches on the green door too 🙂
Love it all! Makes me want to paint my door and get to organizing and labeling!
Looking good! This has motivated me! Where did you get the container that is holding the screws? I need a couple of those in my life!
Who knew a garage could be such a fun place?!! Have a safe trip.
Girl. This garage is AMAZING. Like crazy, good.
Absolutely happy! All of that organization makes my heart go pitter patter! Adding garage to my list of things to do, thanks a lot! 🙂
Your display of spray paint cans by color is awesome and the whole garage space is incredible! Someday I will have to try this. Thanks for sharing!

Seriously looks so good! My husband would be so happy to have his garage organized like that!
Love your garage! It's an inspiration! Makes me want to go out and organize mine right now!
All I can say is garage envy!
Can you come to my garage??? It is begging to be organized like this! I especially love the paint swatch organization. Thanks for the great tips!
Haha…that comment message just made me LOL
I painted different colored squares on my garage walls and I love the pop of color but I didn't even think to paint the door. I think I'm going to do that, thank you for the inspiration.
I love the idea of the paint chips labeled
Looks so awesome Cassie! Love the spray paint organization! I need some of that in my garage!
roc on momma! we absolutely NEED to do our garage. hot mess does not even come close. I joke with my hubby our POA would quit sending us letters about the outside if we left the garage door up they would be happy if we just closed the garage door lol!
I luv the spray paint organization – so getting one of those next time i'm at walmart!!
Just saw this listed on Remodelaholic and love the paint storage! I'm just wondering how long it's good for in the ball jars! I'm totally doing this though! Thanks for hte inspiration! I've tried many times and my hubby gets in the way, but not anymore! 😉
