Another Remodeling Project

While today was a gorgeous day to finish off the swingset, it got put on hold once again I spent the morning shopping, and The King Fish had all the boys at the Awana games.  (Sort of like the Olympics, game style.)  Anyway, by the time I got home again, and they got home again…. the weather began to cloud up and dinner needed to be cooked….and so our swingset remodel got put on hold again.   Have I mentioned I will be so glad when it is finally complete??  Unfortunately it’s supposed to rain next weekend…. oh well.
In light of that news, we began another remodeling project in the home.  The workbench in the garage.  Would it surprise you to know that this is all I personally wanted for Christmas?  Would it also surprise you to know that the gift, that I asked for, was for the King Fish to completely organize the garage with a workbench for all our stuff.  Seriously, it’s true.  Our main gift to one another was to upgrade our cable TV service.  My gift to him was a battery charger, and his to me was to organize the garage.  That is the project “we”,  he started this evening.  (I just go out there to take pictures and encourage  bug him every once in a while.)
I’ll have tons of photos.  I already took before pictures, and I’ll have lots of photos in progress.  Our goal is to have the garage be cooled off enough in the summer to use as a shaded game area for the kids.  We have an air hockey table in there (with junk stored on it of course), and we would love to get a ping pong table.  If we had a place to store all his tools, paint, junk etc, I’m thinking it would make the space a lot more usable. 
We are also adding a long coat rack out there since we all come in through the garage.  Currently we use a hall tree in the front entrance to hang all our coats and it’s so full it could tip over!  When guests come over there is no room for their coats.  So, we’re adding that small project out in the garage as well.  I’ll be sure to post photos of that too when we are finished.  And our shoe caddy, display area in the front hall…. it needs some velcro and fabric.  I have both, I just need to get busy creating!
So much to do, so little time!!

Okay, I'm on a roll with the comments this morning. I should be working (or doing laundry), but catching up on blogs is much more fun.

I can so relate to this post because Martin and I had a little wager about cleaning the garage when we first got married. If my mom called us on our honeymoon, I would clean the garage. If she didn't he would clean the garage. He lost the bet, but 13 years later, I think I've only been able to park the car in there maybe 5 times. Oh well, he excels in other areas. Along the same theme, one year for Christmas, I cleaned and detailed the inside of his truck and he organized my home-office desk. Gotta love it!
