« Part 2: A Fresh Coat of Many Colors (of Paint) Part 3 of Garage Remodel series no next part

I had higher hopes for the finished room—some custom cabinetry and perhaps some painted details—but in the end, I settled for “neat, organized and finished.” On a friend’s suggestion I hacked off the lower two cabinets from an old built-in desk unit that was in the basement (and before that in the previous homeowner’s kitchen) and mounted it at counter height along the back wall to act as a planting station for my wife. I bought a Rubbermaid hanging organizer system for the side walls, which worked out fairly well. Overall, it’s nothing terribly special, but it’s functional, organized and clean. Here’s a before/after picture set:





I’m nearly done with the initial design phase of the basement remodel and hope to begin blogging about that in the very near future.
