Organized Garage Workspace + A Giveaway!

Jul 6

Are you tired of hearing about garage organization yet? Between my client’s garages and my own, I feel as if I’ve been held captive in a garage for a couple months. Therefore all of you have been held captive as well. *insert evil laugh* Oh, and guess what? I got a call from a new client last week about organizing her garage. In the summer no less. #stopwhiningsam

Buckle up party people – you’re going to hear even more about garage organization…this week and in the coming weeks. Heh heh.

Seriously though, the garage is a major organization hot spot in any home. And I love helping people whip their garage into shape and gain an entirely new space to love, enjoy and work in. Yes, I did say love and enjoy. πŸ˜‰ Because boy am I loving and enjoying my organized garage! Ack – I can’t get enough of this wide open space where I can easily find everything! And walk!…



Over the last few weeks I’ve shared various projects completed out here, but there’s one area that needed wrapping up – the new workspace drawers…

In this post I showed you how I went from this…

To this…

But I still needed to put away my toys…

And last week I spent some time doing just that…

Now all the drawers are not only organized, but labeled too. *in love* No questioning what’s inside or where the item needs to go when done using it…

I’m guessing now you want to take a peek inside my drawers? Ha! Totally meant to say that! But seriously, I’ll let you have a peek…



Love my compartment organizers, which fit beautifully inside…









On the shelves are tools already contained in their own case / bag …

And my girly tool bag that I take on jobs…

These items fit so well in the drawers under my work surface…

So it made sense to keep smaller items that tend to get lost in the shuffle in the black rolling toolbox…

Here’s a little peek…



You’ll notice in between the workspace and the toolbox I have the gardening tools up on the wall. This was a very helpful yet simple and easy project too! Just used Container Store utility track and components to get these bulky guys up off the floor…



It’s true that my heart skips a beat when I walk around back here!

I am still loving my work surface above the drawers…

I love having a place to work on small projects…

But if it’s a messy job, I use these inexpensive folding tables from Target. They tuck away nicely too…

And my sawhorses are now up on the utility wall…

Loving this garage so much! Just when you think I’m done, I’m not quite done yet. What’s left to do? Fill out the peg board over the workspace…

And complete my little home gym…the Flor tiles should be here any day!…
It only gets better and better, I tell you!
To celebrate all of my hard work out here…and your patience with my whining, complaining and celebrating…I have a fun giveaway for you guys…uhhh, I mean girls. πŸ˜‰ And it’s sponsored by me! Remember my girly tool bag? This cute one with all the compartments? (You know I’m a sucker for compartments!)…




I bought one for a Simply Organized reader too! And not only will you receive the bag, but it’s going to come with a few surprise organization products tucked inside! As usual, entry into a Simply Organized giveaway is simple – enter as many ways as you wish to up your chances. Nothing is mandatory…but you do need to enter at least one way to win! πŸ˜‰
Good luck you guys and I’ll be back later this week with even more garage organization chatter!

    I don't know if 'enjoy' is the right word. I revel in the finished project, but that is after staring at it for months. My husband both have tool sets, but mine live in one of his 4, yes 4, tool boxes in the basement. I love the idea of having a bag I can cart around to my projects. I was so glad when we moved into a house with just a shed and no garage because the garage got so full and messy we couldn't park in it. I clean/organize the shed every summer. I am hoping to use your inspiration to get my basement cleaned up. Thanks

    I would like the toolbag to keep my tools. My husband scatters tools all over & it drives me nuts. πŸ™‚

    What a fab bag! My husband is the DIY person in this house and I can see the bag being so useful for him to coral the items he brings into the house from his (messy) garage/workshop! I must show him you blog and how tidy garages can be!

  4. I enjoy having a neat and tidy and organized home. I do like to see things as they should be and therefore I do like to organize.

    I enjoy doing DIY projects around your own home. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride.

    This tool bag will come in handy because I always have something else to store.

  6. Sonja Nelson says:

    Wow looks great! What an amazing space!

  7. Kathy says:

    I'm getting better at DIY projects and each summer I get a bit more organized! This looks like a great tool bag because it would keep all MY tools in place so they don't get mixed up with the hub's. Thanks for all your great tips on your blog!

  8. Rana Dissi says:

    I have been enjoying your garage organization posts. They have definitely been giving me ideas for my own garage. We moved to our house recently and our garage still needs a lot of work to get organized. I'm hoping we'll get to it in the next few weeks.

  9. Aunt TC says:

    I love seeing all the changes you've made and would like to win the organizer.

  10. My husband is disabled, so I'm the one who does most of the day to day fixes around the house. This would be so helpful because I'd be able to have everything in one cute bag that I can keep nearby.

  11. Papilio says:

    I really love this bag but I am in Franec, is this giveaway international ?
    Love your blog, it gives me so much inspiration !

  12. I love doing DIY projects. It's an awesome feeling to make/remodel/do something with your home. I'd love this bag for keeping my tools separate from my sweet husband's!

  13. I currently have a large, HEAVY toolbox that was my grandfather's which is great for sentimental reasons, not so much for carting tools to projects. This bag would be great for that purpose. I love all of the inspiration that you provide. Thank you.

  14. kendra nay says:

    Awesome garage and great give away. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Haley says:

    I would like to do more DIY but I have problems saying no to social events sometimes.

    The bag would be great for my car to keep the emergency tools and such organized.

  16. Karen says:

    Forget the walk in closet remodel; give me your garage any day!!!

  17. BV says:

    It's tough to get started on home improvement projects for me, but it's always worth the time and energy. I hate relying on contractors and being at the mercy of their schedules. Looks like a handy tool bag.

  18. I'm just starting to get into DIY. I'd love to be able to do more. This bag would help. BTW, I love your garage!!

  19. D Johnson says:

    I love diy projects. I am re-doing my bathroom right now.

  20. Magda Z says:

    My boyfriend has his own tool case, but it would be great to have such a convenient bag for myself to do some smaller works. I try to do things on my own as often as possible, and some of the tools are useful for the craft projects as well

  21. Love DIY! Thanks for this opportunity! I would love to replace my heavy box with this!!!

  22. Michelle J. says:

    I do! I actually brought the tools into our marriage, and my husband and I both use them. This would make them organized!

I'd Love To Hear From You!
