The Ultimate Garage Makeover with The Container Store

This post is sponsored by The Container Store, but all opinions are our own.

I'm sure you've heard it said that good design and organization go hand in hand. Obviously, a space looks it's best when it's clean and uncluttered allowing you to really focus on the aesthetics. So much easier said than done though, right?

Especially when you have kids in the house.

But do you know where organization goes to die?

The garage, y'all.

Garage Makeover

It's a catchall for literally everything. Tools, lawn equipment, sports gear, dirty shoes, pet food. I'm approaching a panic attack just creating this list of clutter.

SwatchPop!'s co-founder, Kristen Yonson, has the most amazing modern farmhouse here in Georgia. You've probably seen it if you follow us on Instagram. It's impeccably designed (duh!) and for the most part, really organized.

But Kristen is just like us, friends. The garage was a hot mess.

Kristen's boys are young. They're an active family and they have a pool. So, they entertain A LOT.

The Yonsons and their guests enter the house through the garage. All day long they're coming and going, grabbing towels for the pool, and getting drinks and snacks from the garage refrigerator.

So we teamed up with The Container Store to help Kristen with her mission to turn her cluttered garage into a fabulously functional mudroom.

Can you BELIEVE IT?!

Every inch of this garage is completely functional and totally stylish (bonus!)

Every area of the garage is it's own little zone with it's own unique purpose.

Each family member has their own personal locker to store their sporting equipment: dad's golf clubs, mom's tennis and yoga gear, the boys' baseball stuff. It's all collected and concealed in these cute little lockers.

This is the GOOD LIFE, y'all! She can hang their pool towels on these lovely antique nickel hooks, which sit right next to the washer and dryer. Imagine, those sweaty athletic clothes and wet bathing suits never even make it inside!

The Container Store's InterMetro Customizable Shelving system stores all of the pool necessities as well as balls, games, and outdoor toys in the cutest storage baskets and bins.

On the other side of the refrigerator, Elfa Custom Shelving and drawers hold all the tools, nails, lightbulbs, gardening equipment, and all the endless clutter that might typically shove into the kitchen and laundry room drawers. Such an upgrade!
