Spring Cleaning/ Organizing in the garage

I FINALLY finished painting the inside of the garage! White just makes everything feel fresh, roomy and clean. Originally, I decided to paint it because we had some extra white paint around and I need a clean canvas for the Jayhawk mural. 7 gallons of paint later... it's finally done (and actually I could probably use another gallon for some touchup, but I am tired of painting right now).

After I finished the painting my 'soon to be hubby' and I started organizing the garage. We are delighted with how versatile the Rubbermaid Fast Track wall organizers are. Check out the system on their website here, Rubbermaid.

We purchased what we wanted to start with from Lowes and plan to add to it as time goes on. I have my eye on the ball holder (only I need more than 1) and a few other accessories.

As everyone knows organizing is a process. We have a long way to go to be completely organized, especially in the garage where most of our junk (of all shapes and sizes) seems to gravitate to.

I told you in an earlier post, More Storage Space, how we added some space above the actual garage door. We liked it so much that we put in a another one recently.

Here are the pics....
NOW: The Wheelbarrow holder is one of our favorites!
BEFORE: As embarrasing as it may be!

Your garage is so neat and organized, you have inspired me to get going on our very messy garage! And I agree, white paint makes everything look better!

I lived in Kansas for 18 years. I noticed that Jayhawk right off! I have very fond memories of my days in Kansas. I have only been gone a little over a year. (I miss everything except the cold!!) Good luck on your marathon. OH MY!!

Wow, that is one clean and organized garage. What a huge difference the paint makes. I want to paint mine now too, but I don't want to have to take everything out. It really looks amazing. Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday. How's your wedding plans?

I featured your garage at We're Organized Wednesday. I hope to have a featured button by the next party so you can grab it then. Thansk again and happy wedding blessings.
