Garage Reveal {One Room Challenge}

I am so excited to share our newly reorganized and repurposed garage with you all today. We are now welcomed home by a calm and orderly space, which in turn influences the lives of each one of us living on the other side of that door. It is a testament to the power of one's surroundings. If you are on the fence about reworking a space in your home to better suit you and your family's needs I can not encourage you enough to start TODAY! 

Ok, I'll climb down off my soapbox and get on with the reveal. Rather than repeat myself recaps of the past weeks layout the goals and challenges of this project. If you have any specific questions please leave them in the comments and I'll do my best to address them. And of course be sure to check out all the other ORC linking participants. We began with a dirty, cluttered 19'x19' two stall garage. With some paint, reorganizing, and DIY carpentry we now have a purposeful and tidy extension of our home. Come a take a peek!

Newly built "Sports Center"

So there you have the new and improved garage. Before I go, I would like to point out a few special touches. The door knocker was a gift from my brother and sister in law. Our front door is glass so I have been waiting on just the right spot to place it. In addition, the door color is a nod to the paint of our first home. Every time I walk through this door the color reminds me of where we began and how much Hubby & I have built together over the past 13 years. Even in the most utilitarian of spaces, you can still have your home reflect your story. 

Most of all, I have to thank my husband and father for all their patience and talents. None of this would have been possible without them and I am forever blessed to always have them by my side.
