CONDO2CASTLE: Don't Forget Your Garage!!!

My friend Barbie also has a one bedroom condo...however hers is GINORMOUS! It is LITERALLY twice the size as mine. But THAT is not what makes me the most envious...it's her amazing garage.

Barbie moved in and immediately put in cabinetry throughout her garage and epoxied her floors! Which inspired today's CONDO2CASTLE!

Don't Forget Your Garage!!!

For many people, the garage is the catch-all in your house. Boxes get tossed stored in the back, bikes, snowboards, and golf clubs get stashed in the corner (oh wait, that's MY GARAGE), and sometimes garbage even piles up. We always assume that we'll get to organizing it later, but later rarely comes...

Your garage likely has more square footage than some of the rooms in your home and shouldn't be ignored! Now, if you're a condo owner like me, you probably won't go to the same length as many of these images, BUT some changes can improve the value of your home AND make pulling into your garage much more pleasant!

So, don't put off your garage plans any longer! (JJ, that means you, too!) Let's do this and tackle the next room in our CONDO2CASTLE series together!

For inspiration, please check out these delicious garages!

Ikea has some inspiring units too! I once surprised my hubby by installing one of their units while he was out of town- a lot of work, but it feels so good to pull into an organized space!
didn't paint the floors, though...maybe another trip...

The cabinets and the floor in the garage is the main reason I bought this house.

I love organization, especially when you have a small house.

I drool over a well organized garage. I am a sick individual.

I'm so jealous, always wanted to restyle the garage, husband thinks it's a crazy idea.

If only we had basements in Texas could I have a garage that looked like one of those. Great pics!

This is the inspiration I have needed to organize our garage! You have such a fun blog! I found it through the mom blog and Julie's blog. Love it!
