You may have seen an earlier post of my cute Dad installing a garage door opener in our 3rd bay garage. My unabashed abuse of my poor Dad did not stop there. Oh no, no, no. Not by a long shot. It was a slippery slope which I enjoyed thoroughly. I now go in my garage, shed a tear and leave... hourly.
Cuz this is what it used to be:
A disgrace to garages everywhere.
Wasted space. Junk all over the floor.
Stuff thrown haphazardly hither and thither.
I would run out, grab a diet beverage from the fridge and run back in as soon as possible. Those days are over.....
Ladies & gentleman (that's you Markie!)... I now present The Landerson Garage 2009.
Room to run free and in VonTrapp type circles!
The walls being put to use just as they were intended! My dad didn't do ANYTHING if it wasn't attached to a stud. My favorite thing was every time he solidified a shelf or hook or whatever he'd wiggle it a little and say "That isn't going anywhere" all excited like. Hilarious.
My dad came up with some ingenious things such as how he hung this super annoying gigantic ladder we bought for unknown reasons long ago. It's not going anywhere, btw.
The best part....::cue angelic heavenly music::
I know you wanted to see every angle. Have you ever seen anything so beautiful in your entire life? Did you see the LABELS? The labels!!! The ones that don't have labels are empty. Sheer joy, I'm telling ya.
Other "little projects" my dad has worked on:
Painted and hung a door on the boys' room (it didn't have one when we moved in)
Cleaned out our gas fireplace (I was unaware the glass part could come off and it was getting nasty in there... I was just planning on living with it... srsly)
Fixed a kitchen chair
Fixed some lighting issues in the basement
Taught me all about the nuances of Harbor Freight Tools
I think I need him to come by at least twice a month to fine tune the house. Gty & I are hopeless homeowners.
Thanks Dad for all your hard work! Now the family reunion starts tomorrow and you'll just be on cooking duty. Easy.
