Hi Friends, today, I will be sharing the black and white garage cabinet that we’ve been working on for the past few weeks. It is now finish and we are happy of the outcome.
We decided to have a better storage system for the kid’s school bags and other stuff that we have. For one, we are already fed up with what’s happening in our living room. Our sofa was turned into a bag dumping area. Not to mention toys on it too. As home executive aka Mom, it is my goal to create a functional home for the family. It’s high time to create more and better storage of our things that has been laying around everywhere. Just by looking at these clutter, creates a feeling of burden on our back. Do you feel the same too? We still prefer to see a sofa where we can easily lounge and relax. I cannot remember where I read an article where it says “there should be a place for everything including clutter”. Organizing is a constant battle for me and I am pretty sure most Moms out there feel the same way.
We decided to make a cabinet that has seating capacity, place for our slippers and shoes, bag and bulky item storage and more. This is our garage before…
then it became like this. You may read my previous post here.
Works in progress…
And the final cabinet was pleasing to our eyes.
We re-used our existing 3/4 marine plywood that we used before in our playpen aka family bed. I asked a local carpenter and painter to do all the job because I do not have the time and knowledge. Since it is dusty outside, there should be door covers and painted it semi-gloss paint for easy clean up. We painted it black and white which is the theme of the house. It looks great on a yellow stenciled wall. What do you think?
Sharing to you these lovely mudrooms that inspired me in designing this project.
