Sorry for the blogging hiatus. Last week, Bob and I were enjoying the beautiful sunshine and beaches in Curacao. We had a great time and I will have plenty of pictures and details of the island to share once I have time to finally look at all the pictures. The rest of the time I was MIA was spent preparing to be away (at home and at work), and now trying to get caught up on everything since we returned. It’s well worth it, but my house projects have just had to sit and wait! Hopefully, this weekend I will get time to do some fun projects at home so that I can share. In the meantime, I thought I’d share some garage organization inspiration pictures that I have found on Pinterest.
Since I organized our master bedroom closet, I’ve definitely caught the organization bug. And, Bob realized how nice it is too. So, he said we have to add organizing the garage to our to-do list. I’m not going to do it while its cold. But, I want to start getting ideas so I can get supplies and prepare to start once we get a nice Spring day.
At first I was drawn to just simple organization, plastic containers all stacked and neatly labeled.
Then, Pinterest got the best of me and I began to lust after creating a potting bench in the garage. It started with more simple versions.

And, led up to a very feminine potting bench and workstation.
I got back to reality and tried to focus on the items we have in our garage that will need organized, including a bike and golf bags. I really liked this system from The Container Store.
This system from Rubbermaid has great practicality too. We have a short section of a similar system, so we may be able to expand it. Plus, we lost our tiki torches in the storm last Fall, but once we replace them, we will need good storage for them in the offseason.
We have some cabinets in the garage, and we have a cart to store our firewood for the chimnea, but all of it does not look nearly as pretty as this space.
This makes me wish I had some old cabinets to repaint and put in the garage.
Some more practical options:

I saw some 50 degree weather in the forecast, but I’m not quite ready for the garage project. So, I have some more time to gather inspiration. Is your garage organized? Is it practical, pretty, or both?
This is the first I’ve linked to pictures from my Pinterest boards. I did try to link to the original source in this post so that you can repin directly from the source. I wasn’t able to find the one source, so if you know the origin, please let me know so that I can give proper credit.
