accent pillow case baby burlap decorative Cleaning Your Garage- Time to Spring! custom anniversary gifts

With Spring here, it’;s time for some spring cleaning! I’;ve been itching to get my garage organized for over a year! Cleaning your garage may not seem like something you’;re looking forward too, but like any area of your home, it feels SO nice when it’;s done! ?I’;m actually going to share my not so flattering photos of my very messy garage…;…;.because life gets messy. (Unless you’;re my inlawsaccent pillow case baby burlap decorative, they have the perfectly organized everything…;…;.drat!)

As part of the Lowe’;s Creative Ideas Team, one of our challenge options was “;SPRING CLEANING &; ORGANIZATION”;. ?I knew right then that this would be the time to force my husband to clean out that darn garage! (or I’;d tell his mother)?

I’;d been suggesting cabinets for YEARS, but I swear he was born in the depression because “;if it ain’;t broke”; why change or fix it. ?Things just kept piling up season after season. I guess he thought if both cars still fit, we were good.

Before he could even crinkle his nose at getting new cabinets, I ordered them online from Lowe’;s and had them waiting for us at our local Lowe’;s. He and our son put them together which of course is always a good father / son bonding time.

With the cabinets built, it was time to tackle this mess! It’;s not completely finished, but I’;d say we’;re about 85% done and it feels so nice. ?I noticed we had duplicates of many items, which only goes to prove that you waste money when you’;re unorganized. (I found 6 bags of moss killer…;…;…;just sayin)

It’;s not one of those pretty garage organization projects …;…;.. Better Homes and Garden isn’;t going to be calling anytime soon, but I’;m still happy.

The tool area, that last shelf and under the tool bench still needs attention and it will get it…;…;…;soon.

Organized garden tools shouldn’;t make me so giddy, but I really enjoyed filling this caddy up.

It was so inexpensive and it so perfect . ?I was pretty thrilled to see my lawn chair cushions fit perfectly too. ?It’;s the little things people.

We grabbed 6 of these easy grab bins. ?I like how they are open so we always know what’;s inside. ?One for weeding stuff and one for car wash stuff. ?I love that they also stack if needed.

I know my husband will really enjoy it when he can find what he’;s looking for.

This project was fairly inexpensive for the amount of impact it will have.

Budget: $0.When sourcing parts for my last backpack I realized how much the parts could cost: webbing, d rings and/or parachute clamps really add up.I also wanted to add a hood to an existing backpack, but didn't have any spare backpacks. However, I did have some donor hoodies available and that inspired this project.There are already several hoodie-to-backpack projects out there but nothing like what I wanted, so I started planning.

The living room is possibly the most used room of any house. It is where we watch TV, entertain friends, chat over coffee, and throw ourselves about while playing certain computer games. We use it as a play room, a study -with our laptops on knees, a dining room – with plates on knees a reading area and a napping area. It’s one of the few rooms where the entire family will all be in at one time, and possibly plus a few relatives too. It is a true multi-purpose space, and therefore need to be designed and decorated to reflect this.

Just in time for summer, Bunny Williams designed a variety of floral frogs to make flower arranging easier than ever. According to Bunny, anyone can create a beautiful arrangement if you’ve got the right tools. We’re not saying we didn’t take her word for it, but we did put her floral frogs to the test. We askedgarden and entertaining expert, James Farmer, to help us create three unique looks using each one of Bunny’s floral frogs — and we think you’ll love the results every bit as we do.
