A Garage Make-Over and Saying Goodbye To The Summer Garden

I woke up this morning so excited for my friend and client.  When she walks out her back door today I know that there will be a little extra bounce in her step as she glances into her cleaned-out, organized, stylish garage!  We spent the past two days culling, giving away, taking to consignment, trashing and otherwise reinventing the interior of her three car garage.

The already existing pegboard made organizing easy…

Really one man’s trash is another man’s treasure – the client saved this wine rack and painting from the garbage truck.  It gave us a nice way to corral her terra cotta pots…

So I was thinking happily about her waking to her clean garage when I noticed that the zinnias in my garden were more than a little long in the tooth.  The decision was quickly made, today the zinnias must go, making room for fall planting in the next few weeks.  Since there were still many blooms to enjoy I grabbed some buckets filled with water and my clippers and set to work…

I had good help…

I didn’t worry about the blooms that broke off during the process,  I will dry them for seeds…

Moving over to the sink, the fun began…

I received the two adorable vases for my birthday and couldn’t wait to fill them up…

I really packed them full, why not?…

With all of them inside I decided to just have a last blast of summer bounty…

My day just seems to go a little better when I depart from and arrive home to a clean garage…
