I can't stand a messy closet. I like my surroundings organized.
BEFORE (Right side): For three years, our tool shed has been a horrible mess after the initial house renovation. We had tools and materials in 4 different places around the house hidden in our bedroom, two closets and in the tool shed. It really bothered me, but there were too many other things to finish first.
AFTER (Right side): Lots of paint, caulk, sanding and shelving really improved the shed.
BEFORE (Left side): We had partially used paint cans all over the place. Once I got it all organized I discovered we had THREE full cans of white gloss trim paint! Sheesh!
How many screw drivers and hammers do you need anyway?
Like any good first grade classroom, I labeled where everything is. Art should have no trouble finding where all his big nails, small nails, big screws, small screws, nuts and bolts, wrenches, pliers, painting equipment, tiling equipment, car wash things, etc. are.
It was such a huge job, but what a great feeling to now KNOW exactly what we have and where it's located in one place.
I don't think it was a huge priority for Art to get this tool shed done, but he does admit it's great to know where all his (and my brother's) tools are. I guess this must be a teacher type idiosyncrasy that I have to know where everything is stored and labeled.
