Storing My Substancial Paint Stockpile

My goal this year is to finally unpack our house. You know when you move in and just throw boxes wherever they fall? That’s what we did, but those boxes are still sitting there. We moved in four years ago. Don’t judge.

I have big plans for a living room and hallway makeover this year, but I need to get the garage in order first. It’s so much easier to do home projects when the paint and tools are accessible and not hidden.

Thanks to Trinity, I finally have an organized garage space for all my paint supplies.

I’m warning you, you may be jealous of my new paint storage situation.

garage-pegboardI told you, it’s awesome. Just look at everything organized and in sight. It makes me way happier than it should.

Give me a break, this is what I was dealing with before:

garage-organizationA Rubbermaid bin full of paint supplies doesn’t really cut it. I never knew what supplies I actually had. I ended up buying new paint brushes, primer and painters tape every time I started a new project. What a waste of money and space.

garage-organizationMy Trinity 3-tier rolling cart was the basis for the whole makeover. I wanted somewhere to properly store my paint supplies that was easy to move around the garage. Now when I’m refinishing a piece of furniture in the driveway, I can just load up the cart and wheel it out. How convenient is that?

The Trinity storage cart was super easy to put together. No tools are needed, just your own two hands. And with a 600 lbs capacity I have no doubt that it will last us a lifetime.

silhouette-cameo-pegboardI added a pegboard above the paint station that I just love. I bought a 4′ x 4′ piece of pegboard at Lowe’s for about $8 (didn’t even need to have it cut) and painted it Allen & Roth pier 14 (ar 1228). Allen & Roth shop ’til you drop (ar423) is the orange accent color. And then I used my Silhouette Cameo to add a little orange paint roller decal.

paint-storageI found some scrap wood to use as 2 small shelves. One for my spray paint and the other for my paint samples. For the samples I simply added an additional board to that shelf to give it a second level. Now I can easily see both rows of paint samples.

  1. Wow.. I’m jealous.. ;) I love how organized it is now, and your tools and paints.. Thanks for linking up at Friday fun party.

  2. Looks great! Paint organization is definitely something I need to work on (although we’ve only been here about 9 months, so I guess I have a little over 3 years before I need to feel really behind ;)). Love the little orange paint roller!

  3. SO clever and organized. I love the painted orange roller on your peg board :) Thanks for linking up to the weekly creative.
