In this previous post I mentioned that I have a 5 part plan to getting my garage organized. It's possible that I may or may not have added another part (ok, ok, I did. But, it may not get done for quite awhile since it involves painting the walls). Anyhoo, I completed Part 1 a few months ago which involved reorganizing inside all the bins, labeling the bins, and arranging them nicely on the upper shelves. Because I don't do things like I'm supposed to, I went out of order and completed Part 4 which was to install wall hooks for various items in the garage. A couple of months ago, I bought some hooks at Target, but didn't have good luck at installing them. They fit very loosely in the drywall making it unsafe to hang things. So, finally, this weekend I remembered to grab some anchors while I was at Home Depot and hoped this would work.
I used a 5/16 drill bit like the instructions said for the anchors and just drilled away into the wall.
Once I had my hole, I lightly tapped the anchor into it with a hammer.
And then just screwed in the hook by hand.
Then I hung a folding chair from it, making it easy to grab and go.
I installed 2 more hooks on the other side of the bookshelf to hang my ladder.
heh, seriously though)
And then I quickly realized that I didn't really have much else to hang on the walls. Hmph. I have a few extra hooks for when I do need them though. Ooh, ooh! I just remembered something else I can hang. :)
So, here is my list, re-visted, with the newest part included:
2) Clean up the doors and insides of the cabinets.
3) Reorganize inside the cabinets by category (use plastic bins/tupperware/ziplock baggies).
5) Re-do the laundry area to make it nicer??
6) Paint the walls
I'll be posting a few things this week to make up for the last 1 1/2 weeks, so stay tuned. Hope you all had a great weekend!
