Garage Sale Organization

Preparing for a garage sale includes deciding on a sale date, collecting and displaying sale items, and promoting the sale. In order to use the entire garage space efficiently to display sale items for a sale some simple solutions were implemented. Empty paint buckets and existing doors were used to create temporary tables to display tools. Existing nails around the garage perimeter held garden hose and saws. A metal coat rack was used to display extension cords. Paint supplies and household cleaning tools were arranged on shelves by type. Landscaping tools, cleaning tools, and salvage materials were grouped along two walls of the garage.

Egyptian Wall Art

Existing antique furniture and a passion for Egyptology inspired this Egyptian wall art display. The Egyptian art is ink on papyrus with rough uneven edges. Floating frames were selected in order to show the natural material. Black frames draw out the black ink of the art in contrast to the neutral colored papyrus. The frames were arranged in an asymmetric rectangle in order to balance out the different size art and frames.

Bookshelf Organization – Example 3

A media shelf holding an assortment of cassette tapes, CDs, VHS, and DVDs needed organization. Since the media shelf is in a storage room, functionality is more important than aesthetics. The shelving unit has different size shelves that needed additional shelving to accommodate all of the media. Shelving was improvised by adding cardboard boxes stored horizontally. The CDs have been grouped by genre and stored on the top shelves and the cassette tapes are stored in closed containers on the bottom middle shelf. The DVDs have been sorted by genre and alphabetized on the cream colored shelf on the middle left. The VHS tapes are organized on the right middle and right bottom shelves. Containers of photos are stacked on the bottom left shelf.

Kitchen Cabinet Organization – Example 3

This kitchen needed some organizing baskets and bins in order to sort and separate all of the kitchen utensils, tools, and other supplies. The utensils have been consolidated into one drawer and in the cabinet below are now all of the rarely used appliances. Next to the range is a drawer with scissors, openers, measuring spoons, serving spoons, and spatulas. The cabinet below holds all the pots and pans on two drawers. Above the microwave are cooking and baking supplies along with bulk seasonings. To the right of the microwave are spices and seasonings sorted by type on three turntables. In the corner wall cabinet are three new sets of dishes sorted by color. Below the corner cabinet and on the other side of the range is a lazy susan (not shown) containing slicers, graters, measuring cups, and baking dishes.

Adjacent to the sink on the left are ceramic mugs and drinking glasses. Below the sink are cleaning supplies separated into a bin and a tote with a handle for transporting around while cleaning the house. The handheld broom, dustpan, and fly swatters are hung on hooks alongside the cleaning supplies. To the right of the sink are vitamins and medicine sorted in open baskets. Baby bottles and dishes are stored on the two shelves above the medicine.

In the corner wall cabinet to the right of the sink are stored glass food containers, mixing bowls, and serving platters. Below is another lazy susan (not shown) containing coffee, tea, drink mixes, sugar, flour, and large cereal boxes. The wall cabinet to the right contains baby food and assorted boxed foods. The base cabinet has tiered shelves lined with canned goods and other various foods below.
