Our trash is picked up on Tuesdays, so we spent about an hour Monday night clearing out anything that needed to be trashed. We filled up the trash bin plus filled up my car with a load for Goodwill. We also moved all of the gardening items to the shed and moved all of the cement pavers to the backyard. That was my workout for the day!
We spent more time cleaning on Tuesday night and finally started sorting through some of the boxes. My sinuses are seriously hating me right now. My allergies are already really bad this time of year, but going through all this dusty stuff is killing me. I can’t wait to be done with this!
It doesn’t look like we’ve made much progress and we aren’t as far along as I’d like to be at this point, but I’m happy that we’ve at least started. Cleaning out the garage after working all day is the last thing I want to do, but we are really pushing ourselves to make a little progress each day. We have dinner plans on Saturday, but nothing else other than that, so we’ll finally have time to make serious progress in the garage.
My goal is to finish cleaning out the garage, add trim/paint the door, and paint the walls by next week. I also want to get all of the old paint organized and condensed into new jars. That should free up a lot of space.
In shopping news, I’ve decided on this wood bench from Home Depot and I’ve ordered this metal pegboard. The metal is more expensive than the typical pegboard, but it’s supposed to hold heavier items and last longer. It also comes with all of those accessories (plus free shipping), so I feel like it’s a good deal for what we need. We already down those shelves.
Other than that, I really don’t have anything else to share. This makeover is off to a slow start and it’s stressing me out. I’m just really thankful that Adam is completely on board for all of this. I definitely couldn’t do all of the projects I have planned by myself in six weeks. So yay for Adam!
