Houston We Have An Update

Blake and I have done some more organizing and shelf-putting-together in our garage! We still have a few more things to do, but here's what it looked like after Tuesday's post:

And here's what it looks like after assembling another shelf and cleaning out some more stuff:

In all honesty, it doesn't look that much better, but we're taking baby steps :) And! We cleaned out a section of our garage that looked like if you touched it, a spider would eat you! Unfortunately I fail at taking before pictures so I totally forgot until we were almost done...I was all in the moment you know? However, I did remember the after picture! Here it is:

See that row of shoes? Here's a closer look:

Apparently some spiders needed a place to stay for a while, so they took up residence in my husband's shoes. I don't blame them since some of those shoes have been out there for like a year! And we broke our shop-vac while cleaning up our washing machine mess last weekend, so the spiders get a couple more days of housing until Blake and I can go get a new filter!

Anywho, back to the shelving part. We realized while organizing the garage the first time that we really don't have that much stuff. So we decided to assemble the second shelf in more of a workbench/table manner. Here's what it looked like: Oh! And we also moved the first shelf over a bit...

That way we still get some storage, but we can also build things out there or Blake can fix computers out there and not have to worry about dirtying up our house!

Eventually we'll get a stool or two but for now we're using that random office chair that I got as a wedding present from my boss right after she told me we were closing in two weeks. Lol Still grateful though!

We'll probably put a lamp in between the tall shelf and the workbench area to give the worker more direct light and also make this look a bit more cohesive. We also need to figure out what to do with the rest of the stuff in the garage that doesn't belong. Here are our plans so far:

So there you have it! Our baby steps into the organizing direction! Yay! :) Have you guys taken any baby steps that way? Or have you been totally awesome and taken adult steps in that direction?
