New Project: Tackling the Garage

I am always working on about 10 things around the house at once, but my newest pet project is patching, sanding and painting the garage.  Then we can get it organized!

When we moved in we found that both of our cars are too long to fit on the left side of the garage because of the air conditioning unit and water heater being in the way.  Grrrr…  We had no idea when we looked at the house because the previous owners had way too many kids for the house, so the garage was stuffed with a lot of crap, not cars.  They had some great cabinets on the right side of the garage, but it made it difficult for me to get to the passenger side of my car when I started parking there.  So, we took down the cabinets and sold the larger unit on Craigslist, keeping only the smaller two-door cabinet.

Since then, I have been working on patching and sanding the ungodly amount of holes that consume the walls in the garage.  I seriously can not figure out why there are so many holes, and why some are in the places they are.

I found a “mistinted” gray satin paint at Wal-mart on clearance for $5.97 that will work just fine in a garage.  I will also be painting the ceiling, since it is just raw sheetrock like the walls.  Once the walls are smooth, primed and painted, I plan to put the cabinet back up on the left side as close to the back wall as I can.  So stay tuned for updates on the garage, hopefully I can get it finished soon…we’ll see…

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
