I've been thinking about a truly thoughtful gift for my husband for Father's Day. I came up with 2, and started planning and saving up for the supplies I needed. The first thing is what I'm going to share today because, he already got it. Yep. I planned on totally emptying and cleaning and organizing the garage for him. We had so much stacked up in there. Stuff to donate and stuff to organize. No organization whatsoever. None.
Well the other day I overheard him telling his mom that he was going to clean the garage when he was off next. SO that made me panic a bit, so while he worked on Friday I went out and bought the supplies I needed ($40 worth) and Saturday the boys and I woke up bright and early and set out to do some cleaning.
I made a place for every single thing in there. I also made a place for pet supplies, to hang our ladder, a shelf for garden stuff, and auto stuff. (that is on the side of the garage not pictured below)
But here is the before....I'm so sorry you have to see this hehe
Yes. I have to say, that was completely out of hand.
My little helpers really did help me out so much....for about an hour...
And here are the afters which include and old table we had in our backyard used for tools on top and under. The peg board actually put to good use. And just a good cleaning and organizing and stuff that needed donated, actually donated =]
It took me 5 hours. My husband was really thrilled when he got home! My car battery died, so when he came home he needed the jumper cables to give it a boost. He walked into the garage and said, "oh wow!" Haha, then I showed him where everything was. It is so nice to go in now!
