{Organized} Spraypaint

I hope all you moms are feeling relaxed, loved and pampered; and had the best Mother's Day yet! We had a rare weekend with no plans or sporting events, so we had lots of great family time! With all the constant running around, it's a treat to just stay home. That doesn't mean we were idle....no, Sir! I cashed in on Mother's Day, and had the whole family help me tackle more of the garage.

My gosh we have a lot of crap out there! We were still able to park the cars in the garage, but finding things was practically a two-man job. One of my biggest issues was the spraypaint, which was spread out over several shelves and bins, most of which was out-of-reach for me. I had to haul the ladder out everytime I needed a color, and poke around several spots before I found it. Not a good system. So my first task was to round up and organize the spraypaint!

We found all kinds of lost treasures in the garage, one being this Ikea shoe organizer. As luck would have it, each pouch holds two full-size cans of spraypaint perfectly! Of course I had to put them in rainbow order. Primer, sealer, specialty paints, and spray adhesive have spots at the bottom.

I have several different brands, and all fit two-by-two in the pouches....that's a total of 48 cans this baby will organize...and all within my reach!

The colored caps are fully visible, but you can also read the names through the material.

It's so nice to see everything in one glance, instead of digging in the back of shelves. And the best part of having dedicated space for something, is it keeps me from over-buying, because I'm able to see what we have, what we need, and what will fit! (The system is working well for me in the Pantry and Bathrooms, too!)

I may have stood staring at it for a creepy amount of time. But little things like this make life seem easier, and that makes everyone happy.

The rest of the garage is on the way to being organized, too. Now that is my idea of the perfect Mother's Day gift! Well, and the Clarisonic I bought myself from Mr. Sugarplum and the kids. Aren't they so thoughtful?

  1. That's genius! You'll love your Clarisonic. I think I use mine too much. I read that if your face is oily, it may mean you're over exfoliating. Just FYI. It's a bit addictive.

  2. I am SOOO snagging this great idea. My spray paint collection is piled up all over the place and I am guilty of overbuying because I don't know what I have. Looks like you are officially ready to paint anything! Great job and happy Mother's Day!

  3. Happy belated Mother's Day!

    You will love your Clarisonic. (I did the same thing, I bought mine for my 50th birthday which saved my husband and daughter from trekking over to Skin MD).

    It's AMAZING how clean it gets my skin. I also found another product I gifted myself from my family. Nerium AD. I tossed every other potion and just use my Cetaphil, Clarisonic and my Nerium. Goodbye chicken neck!!

  4. Great idea. I really need to do this. My spray paint cans are currently living in an old beer case box. The sections are handy but I can't see the labels.

    You'll love the Clarisonic. I love mine. The only downfall is that it can bring some of the deeper garbage to the surface when you first start using it.

  7. I read you all the time, but have never commented. I am soooo glad you headed out and purchased the Clarisonic on behalf of Mr. Sugarplum. He picked an excellent gift. I got one last summer, and I am addicted. You should see my disappointment when I don't realize the batteries are dead! : )Love that little thing!!! and you will too.

    PS - the over the shoulder purse on your vacation. What was it???

    Thanks and Take Care!

  18. This is a fabulous idea! The shelves in our workroom are filled to the brim with paint but there is a lot of available wall space. I'm pinning this so I don't forget your great idea!

  19. I love this idea Cassie! Is it very heavy?

    1. Thanks, Tracy! It's really not that heavy. I have it hung from pretty solid screws, but didn't have to anchor them or find a stud. Hope that helps!
