Garage, organized! Wow, what a project, glad it’s done!
After a lot of work, now you can come see the reveal of our happy and organized garage!

Happy & Organized Garage by Place Of My Taste

It’s hard to believe that this is our garage.

Really.

We started working on this garage organizing project last summer. Now you are probably thinking that if it took a year for us to have this look, you will never going to start yours –  ha.

No – no, it did not take a year to finish it.

 We stopped working on it for the winter months, and we had a long winter this year.

It took a few weekends to fix the bigger projects, like building the storage wall and putting up the pegboard.

My primary goal right now is to keep this place organized and uncluttered as much as possible.

If you have been following me for a while,  you probably have seen the BEFORE picture already, and a few bigger projects that I had shared. But if you are new, here is the before picture.

Are you ready?

Please don’t judge! It was a mess before!

It is possible. You can do it too! I gathered some ideas last year HERE,
and we planned out beforehand what we would like to see in the garage.

First, we built this amazing storage wall, and we used large bins to organize little things such as seasonal decorations,
grocery bags, jars, paper towels, toilette papers etc.

These huge containers are perfect for hiding things that you don’t want to see laying around!

My boys have SOME (yeah, just a few) bikes, motorcycles that needed a garage space-ha.
This little nook in the storage wall is perfect to store these bikes.

I got huge round bins at Home Depot that holds WATER TOYS  and YOGA MATS and PICNIC blankets.

I also labeled them. 🙂 My plan is to label every single bin but I have not gotten there yet.

My real favorite and maybe the smallest project in the garage is the painted stairs. What a huge difference a little painting can make.

We found a perfect solution to store our bikes. It’s a piece of cake to put the bikes in place.:-)

We used pegboards around the garage wall. I can not tell you how much I love pegboards.
The best way to get everything organized, every little thing!!

I used an old shoe organizer to store my spray paints instead of throwing them into one big box.
Now I can see what colors I have handy by just looking at the organizer.

  1. I love this! Love the storage rack you made and the colored peg board. Beautiful blue and green theme you have going on. Lovely inspiration. Maybe one day (when the weather decides to get warmer) I can finish up my garage. 🙁

    Well done and high five! 😀

    1. Thank You so much Julie! I am loving the green and blue combination. So springy:-) Have a terrific weekend and I hope once the good weather kicks in you will be able to get some organizing done:-)

      1. If HE is handy? And here I thought you were doing the construction labor. I guess it does help to have a partner but I’m sure you are also capable!

    1. Thanks for your kind words:) I realized that I did not included the paint color in the post…its Behr -grass cloth. Have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. Thank You, Alexis 🙂 I love that I know where everything is now!It took at least 5 min. before to find something in the mess…no fun!!Have a lovely weekend!

  2. Aniko, I am simply memorized by all of this organization! I especially love how you put up the bikes and got stuff off the floor. We had a long winter, too. I think this week we’re finally out of it and can now start organizing the garage. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I love what you did. I’d love to see a layout of the entire garage to see how each area fits together/relates to the others. I’ve been trying to find a plan that will work for our garage so we can still open the doors on the cars! lol

  4. So many great ideas! Perfect timing, too – we’re starting on our garage next week. I love how you hung the bikes!

  5. I adore this garage!!! And your before pic sure does look like my NOW pic. I love the shoe hanger for the spray cans. Totally going to do that. Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I’ve pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board

  6. The green storage rack would be great for us to store extra paper products, bottled water, laundry detergent, extra cleaning supplies,etc. Right now they are inside a storage cabinet in garage and taking up space I could use for other things. If it is visible out n the open, you can see what you are in need of replenishing supplies, etc. I could see it having a lot of other uses too. I’ve pinned this and will show it to our handyman to hire to build for us. I sure wished my DH was physically able to do this for us but he’s not.

    1. It is a great solution to hold products and supplies! Such change for us after our very cluttered garage:-) Have a fantastic day, Betty!

  7. Hi. What a wonderful transformation. My garage currently looks like yours used to!! It is now time to focus our attention there and I’m going to use several of the ideas you laid out. Thank you!! But if you wouldn’t mind, can you explain the bike hanging storage a little more. I am lost on how to put away our 5 bikes and this looks simpler and less expensive than other ideas I have seen. But I just can’t seem to figure out from your pictures exactly the what you used. Thanks so much for your help!

  8. The garage looks great, well organized and easy to maintain. Also like that paint holder. Have a shoe holder hanging around now I know what to do with it. Question- I keep looking at your peg boards and I do not detect any space between them and the board. How do you hang them without spacers to allow the hooks to hold?

    Thank you.
    PS: I so look forward to your monthly watercolour calendars and am afraid I become rather impatient waiting to see what you have come up with. Your last few months of 2019 were particularly lovely and a real joy to see on my computer screen everyday. However not loving the new direction with the real fruit. Will this be the direction for the rest of the year?
