What's Hap-Pinning - Garage Organization Inspiration

Happy hump day y'all!  I am so excited to be joining a new link-up that started last week, What's Hap-Pinning Wednesdays with Jessi & Jenn!

Today I want to share some of my garage organization inspiration!  Organizing our garage is one of the last things left on our "to-do" list for the house renovations - praise the Lord!  Also, I've been searching for somewhere to have Jack's first birthday party (in January!) without spending an arm & a leg for really no more than a big party room.  Needless to say the hunt has been difficult & Matt has been trying to convince me it will be fine having it at our house.  Which if it wasn't in the middle of Winter I would be all about it but, we never know what the weather is going to be like!  So, with alll of that said, we need an overflow place for all of the adults that can also be heated - insert the garage!

For starters, our washer & dryer are in the garage (lesson learned here!) and we desperately need to spruce it up & make it a better functioning space.  I love the idea of cabinets to store items & a hanging rod for clothes while folding laundry!

I dream for Matt to have a space where allll of his tools & nuts, screws, bolts, errthang has a place where it lives!  This is something close to what I envision!

They make it look so easy to have an organized garage! I can't wait to paint our garage floor.

An actual dog food container - duh!  I'm tired of looking at the big bag & for years a smaller one has been on the kitchen counters.  Tired of seeing dog food bags!  Oh and the rain/mud boot organization & a drop place for all things misc is a genius idea!

We have a lot of misc type things like outdoor trash bags, car cleaning stuff, painting accessories (+ alll the paint!), etc., etc.  I would love for everything to be organized & have it's home as well instead of just being thrown up on the shelves as it is now.  It's a hot mess for sure!

And lastly, I know that we'll eventually have a collection of outdoor toys for Jack & keeping those together and organized will be crucial for my sanity!  I already pick up toys each night because in no time they are in the kitchen, dining room, living room, our bedroom... They all find their way back "home" though & that helps a ton not waking up to a major mess every morning!  So, outdoor toys will be the same way!

  1. Organization makes me happy! I have a whole board on Pinterest dedicated solely to organization so this post is right up my alley! I don't have a garage (womp womp) but I do love that dog food/leash spot. Makes so much sense!!
    Thanks for linking up with us girl!!

  2. I love all this organization. I'm sure if I had a garage it would look just like this (lol yea right).
