Everyone Needs Storage

Happy Spring, Pinners,

We have been fortunate to finally have some warmer weather.  It has been great to get outside with our favorite little guy now that he is finally feeling better.  He got a nasty case of croup coupled with a stomach bug.  Poor kid was miserable for about a week.


As a new homeowner, storage is everything.  One kid accumulates A LOT of stuff.  Add a hunter/fisherman and wife who ventures out to hunt occasionally and that makes a GREAT deal of stuff to store.  I saw this awesome pin about storage above your garage door and immediately we headed to Home Depot.  We are on a first name basis with a few of the workers at our local Home Depot.  They know we are either headed to the lumber or paint department.

Here is the original pin from my “Our First Home” board.

My husband and father-in-law did a great job with our storage and we are so glad we added this to our garage!  We can store everything in our garage up off of the floor and we can easily fit both vehicles in the garage.  Justin is currently working on a modified version in our storage/work room.  I will post pictures as he gets it finished.  Here is our finished product.

-Happy Pinning!-
