HELLO EVERYONE! My word – it has been way to long since The Thome Home has posted anything at all. Thank you all for being so patient with me during this blog face lift. While the site is not complete, and there are plenty of kinks for me to figure out I wanted to getting back to rolling out the goodies and work out the kinks in the mean time. The new blog will be far more organized + user friendly, so hang tight!
Happy friday everyone!
It’s not a mirage, that hot mess right here
is was our garage.
Months of constant renovations gathered into one hot box of stinky mess.
Each week it got worse. Each time my feet stepped out of the back door I wanted to run with my eyes closed to my car. If I did that though, I would have been sure to of gotten impaled by a sharp object – so tip toeing around all of the junk like a ninja became my way of transporting myself out of this junk yard!
Our garage is LARGE. I never thought it would turn into a room we wanted to finish within the first year of living here. But, having an attached garage seemed to feel like just as worthy of a room as any other in our house. The first room people see when they come over, the entrance to our home and an area that needed to feel a lot more welcoming.
Dan LOVES this garage, possibly more than me. His desire to park his sports car in twenty years is weighing heavily on his mind – so he wanted to give this room an affordable lift and fast.
First we cleared out the entire space and gave the walls a fresh coat of paint and the ceiling received a fresh white coat. The rest was simply a process of throwing away whatever we did not see use for! Sounds easy – but the fact is, we are constantly working on things at this house so there is a need for nearly everything it seems sometimes. But away most went, and the rest found as neat of a home as possible off to the side.
Painting this garage was the last project I wanted to take on at the time, but golly I’m glad we did
We have a TON more organizing to do – each item in here really needs a place to call its own. We are falling into the “shove it to the side” way of cleaning up. Glad that we at least gave this space a whirl before the cold snap hits Cleveland!
Are we the only loonies that painted and cleaned out their garage this summer? Or did you get bit by this dirty bug too?
