My Garage Transformation

Since moving into a new house 6 months ago our garage has just been storage and far from well organised storage, I am talking we have just thrown stuff in there to deal with it later. Now we don’t plan to park the car in there so it hasn’t really been a major deal and neither the front yard or back yard have been done so there is still plenty of work to be done here. Check my garage in the video below

My garage a complete mess in serious need or a massive clean up. In the 6 months living in our new house stuff has just been thrown in here left anywhere and everywhere you can barely get through check out all of the stuff from the Mates Madness team at Http://matesmadness.com

Now as you can see you can only just get from one end to the other, there is stuff everywhere some of if can simply go into the bin. So last weekend I set out about changing that, on my old house I had the dart board up and I would have some mates come around occasionally and we would throw some darts and its time for that to happen again as well.

So I went down to the local hardware store who coincidentally were having a huge sale and picked up so simple to put together shelving Рno drilling, screw drivers or allen keys required.  From there I made a plan clear a space in the corner to build and place the first set of 4 storage units, the first one took me a bout 40 minutes while I was figuring out how they went together (yes I know I could have read the instruction but honestly who does that). After I had the first set of shelves up I filled them to create space to build and place the second set. All of the heavy stuff such as spare tiles from the house build down the bottom to give the shelves more stability.

Second one up right next to the first one and large things like left over floating floor across the top of both third and fourth set of shelves up to create a U shape to segregate off the storage section of the garage. Then I tech screwed in some MDF to the back to the set of shelves facing into the garage placed the dart board on that. Setup a foldup table grabbed a camp chair and for now we are done. We still have some items in the garage which still need to find permanent homes or sold on Gum Tree such as the cot a change table and a few other things that our daughters no longer require. Once they are gone and I feel that space to add to the man cave feel I will give you all an update but for now check out the finished product.

If you have checked out my previous video about my garage being a mess check it out so this make sense, I went down to the local hardware store got some shelving on a super special and turned my mess of a garage into great simple storage, a small office for me and a mini man cave. great result I reckon for under $200 Check out what the whole Mates Madness team has to offer at http://matesmadness.com

Since the video was taken my 6yr old a I painted the MDF backing Woodland Grey as per the featured image for the post, this was left over paint used to paint our old zinc fence.
