The garage is generally the last part of the home to get a little love in terms of storage and organization. That’s a real shame since your garage represents a lot of space–space that can become a clutter magnet, or with a little planning, can become a storage solution for your home. Imagine turning your garage into a place where you can actually do projects, or even host a party!
Courtney Fernman, who writes the blog A Thoughtful Place, decided to take action to turn her garage into an orderly, attractive and useful part of the house. The results of her garage makeover are impressive. She even included a brilliant artistic touch by adding her own Greek key detailing to the countertop.
Here’s how she did it.
The side of our garage has been a constant source of frustration. Like most people, we have too much stuff and not enough places to put it. With two small children, a handy husband, and a blog, I have more than enough toys, tools, and craft supplies than will fit in our garage. I had always swooned over spaces that had cabinets but never dreamed that they would actually afford us so much more storage.
The real problem is that I lacked a place to work on my blog and decorating projects. I do not have a dedicated home office or basement and really needed to carve out a spot that could be just for me.
While I am relegated to the garage for my projects, I don’t really mind as it’s so lovely now.
