In today's video, I'm showing you how we organised our cluttered and messy garage, to one where we can easily access all items, and everything has its own place.
Do you have a garden shed? We have recently put one up in our garden, and it has created loads more storage space in our garage, plus provides an easily accessible place to keep all our gardening essentials. In today's video, I'm showing you how we organised our garden shed, utilising every inch of this small space as an effective storage system.
The build of this shed turned out to be a bigger project than we anticipated, so I hope you're prepared for photo overload! We achieved a lot over three weekends of hard work in pretty hot weather. Not only did we erect the shed, we also did a lot of garden clearing, extended the drip system, and fixed up the kids' backyard play area. So glad to have it all finished!
As the weather finally begins to warm up, we are keen to spend more time outdoors and start using our deck more often. However, as I shared on Monday's post when I was restoring our blackboard, our deck was in major need of some cleaning up. When Summer approaches, the exterior often needs as much work as the interior. Here's how we restored our deck so it was Summer-ready!
Whenever I organise a space, there are three main things I do - sort and declutter, purge, and problem-solve. Although I'm pretty ruthless when it comes to getting rid of things, I always try to look differently at furniture, and if I'm deciding whether to keep or get rid of it, I try to solve the problem it poses. Could it be saved and improved with a coat of paint, sanding it back, applying a new wood-stain or being covered with a new fabric? If a piece of furniture in your house is looking tired and you're wanting to just get rid of it, think seriously about whether a bit of sprucing up could give it a new lease of life.
