It’s here! I swear I blinked and 6 weeks went by.
Today we’re sharing the reveal of our One Room Challenge project, our garage! Six short weeks ago we shared the nightmare-inducing before pictures of our garage, and I’m happy to say that I can officially declare these pictures a thing of the past.
Real talk- this ORC was honestly the most difficult of all 3 we’ve participated in. Complete with blood, sweat, near-tears and a “touch-up” paint job that went awry last night (as in 24 hours ago) this project was a real treat. Luckily we have a finished space that we can now enjoy and hopefully look back and laugh about! It’s a little different than most of the reveals, but we absolutely loved the challenge of it all. We got (almost) everything done on our list, and we hope you enjoy it just as much as we do! Let’s start off with my favorite spot- the workbench I kept mentioning!
Here’s where we stood 6 weeks ago,
And here’s what that same exact workbench looks like now!
Ain’t paint, trim and caulk a beautiful thing? I’m planning on sharing all of the details next week, but we essentially reinforced all of the framing, added 4 doors, a new top and some fun hardware! Rustoleum provided us with the paints for this project, including the fun chalkboard paint that we used on the top. We’re constantly looking for pen and paper to write down measurements, so I thought this could be a fun alternative!
We gave our existing workbench the same paint treatment, and added the fun green pegboard, framed out with simple 2x4s. Eventually we will bring in our saw and fill up the rest of the shelves with all of our random tools, but for now all that organization makes me one happy DIYer!
How fun are these DIY pendant lights? I picked up the supplies, told M about my idea to make them into a light, and off and running he went. He’s the genius who pieced them together, and I love how they turned out! As my grandpa told me, I think we’ll keep him! : )
We even got to dust off M’s papa’s old tool chest and can’t wait to fill it with all of our random drill bits.
Next to the door, we also squeezed in a little mudroom area, and had fun building a bench and hanging some large art (they’re actually for our wedding, but how fun do they look up there?).
The potting bench was our next project, and I can’t wait to use this space next spring to get all of our pretty flowers planted!
The last little bits of organization we created was this rolling scrap wood holder, and bringing in shelving with bins-on-bins-on-bins. It may not be the prettiest thing for a One Room Challenge, but boy does it make me happy to see everything nice and put away for a change : )
Thanks so much for stopping by for this fun challenge reveal! We can’t wait for the next one, and hope you visit the amazing Calling it Home who organizes the entire challenge to see her projects as well as all of the other ORC participant’s reveal posts!
