We moved into the house last spring and focused right away on the kitchen and downstairs renovation. This left little time for any outdoor work, so this spring we are excited to get a couple outdoor projects going! The first project is our mini-makeover for the garage with Gladiator. When I found out Gladiator was looking for people to work with on garage organization, I jumped at the chance knowing Luke would LOVE a new workbench and extra storage for tools in the garage. When we first moved-in he created some basic shelving out of some 2×4 lumbar, but as you can see from the before pictures it wasn’t exactly doing enough for us in the organization department.
We worked with Gladiator to choose a few products that we thought would work well for us. We knew we wanted a work bench for added surface area for projects like planting and small wood working jobs. We love the Adjustable 6ft Hardwood Work Bench! It’s super versatile and was easy to put together. Luke also wanted Gladiator’s Modular GearDrawer. It’s a great place to store tools and their various small parts and it can roll around the garage with him.
The coolest product that Gladiator makes in my opinion are their GearWall Panels, these slat wall style panels come in different lengths and sizes, and easily screw into your walls or studs to get your stuff off the floor! With only two 4′ panels we are able to house multiple yard tools, and a bunch of Luke’s smaller tools and nails, screws, etc. Also, I think my favorite item is the handy CleanUp Caddy, which is the paper towel holder with cleaning products on top! Maybe now I’ll clean out my cup holders and wipe down the dashboard (or at least that is Luke’s dream). Keep reading to see all the after photos!
All the hooks and bins are by Gladiator as well. They are all designed to fit within the slat walls very easily with minimal install. Super easy and so dang handy!
A simple but effective little makeover that took about one full Saturday. We love the finished product. If you got a guy, gal or father figure who might love the gift of Gladiator, all tool chests are up to 40% through June 18th. Everything on THIS PAGE will be on sale through Father’s Day. Thanks for checking out our makeover and stay tuned for one more outdoor update this summer!
