The weather in Charleston has been nothing short of wonderful: 70s and sunny! This weekend was beautiful, so naturally we spent Saturday… cleaning out and organizing our garage.
Not the most glamorous thing, but it needed to be done and since we were in town and had a free weekend, it was the perfect time. After breakfast we headed to Lowe’s and picked up some new shelves. Thanks to everyone who gave us Lowe’s giftcards for our wedding – I think we’re officially out, but our house has enjoyed every dollar!
First step, Hunter put together the shelves while I weeded & watered the beds, and sprayed weed & feed on the grass.Then we basically cleared out the entire garage and went through everything – Like everything in our garage. A lot was trashed, and more is going to Habitat for Humanity & Goodwill. The previous owner had nails everywhere and random cabinets & even a medicine cabinet hung on the walls, so we cleaned it all up, swept it out and started from scratch.Next we put it all back, in the right spots. Some of my wreaths that I keep in the garage have a new hanging place, above the lawn mower’s new home.This may not seem exciting, but I was thrilled with those white shelves – they are my Coastal Kelder shelves! My paints, bleach, and buckets to the side are for all my oyster shells. The 3 lower shelves will be used for shells drying after their bath. Even my cornhole boards have a home hanging on the wall now.We also bought this rail system at Lowe’s for storing our yard tools like shovels, rakes, etc. It was easy to install and keeps our tools off the ground & organized: total win.Here are the new shelves all loaded up with coolers, tools & tailgate chairs!Again not the most glamorous day by any means, but it was super productive! The last time the garage got this sort of attention was almost 3 years ago, right after we moved in. ? We’re both excited that the garage is back in great shape, and yes – I enjoyed a glass of wine after all of our work.

Great job with the cleanout! My husband is building a work bench in our garage right now, so the organization step will be next for sure. I’m seriously obsessed with all your wreaths!

Oh thats fun! We were both so happy to get the clutter out and make sure everything had a designated “home”
The words “Naturally, cleaning” will never apply to me haha
But I’m happy to pay you to come organize my life anytime! 🙂
Looks great! We definitely need to clean out our garage sometime.
Ours was more than due for a good cleaning!
Organization warms my heart! I’m one of those crazy people that have the matching jars for everything in their pantry. I’ve never had to organize a garage before (plus one for that city lifestyle), but I bet it can be a bit overwhelming. What a relief to have it done!
I have t had a pantry where I could do that but would loveeeee to ?
Very impressive! Isn;t that the best feeling? An organized garage!!
