One Room Challenge – Week 3
Week 3 of the One Room Challenge is complete! This week was all about garage organization and clearing out any remaining clutter. I rented a dumpster, installed a hanging garage wall storage system, and created a DIY pegboard.

I rented a dumpster! I have been wanting to do this for months to clear out a lot of the non-recyclable and bulk trash items that were junking up the garage. I found a local company that provided a 3-day rental at a great price. The biggest benefit was not having to run back and forth to the local dump.
I swore we wouldn’t be able to fill it up, but after clearing items from the garage, house and property it was filled to the brim. The garage especially had become quite the graveyard of Pinterest projects gone wrong or forgotten, and it feels SO good to have all of that gone!
Hanging Garage Wall Storage System
With all of the clutter gone, it was time to get the larger more awkward items up off of the floor. Things like folding chairs, ladders, and yard tools need to be accessible and within reach. We’ve used the Rubbermaid FastTrack System for over 5 years now. It can be an investment to purchase all at once, so we’ve slowly added more tracks and hooks over the years.
The shelving portion will be used to store all of the little things that we need to have accessible. I plan to sort them into these Multi-purpose bins. They’re my absolute favorite, and I use them all over the house.

I wanted some hanging storage for over the utility sink so I hung a simple 4 x 4 DIY pegboard over that area.
It’s just stock pegboard from your local big box store. I used scrap 1 x 2 attached to the back as a spacer, and then framed it out with scrap 1/4″ plywood that I ripped down on my table saw.

Moving into next week I’ll be making all of the cuts and prep for the utility sink counter and the mudroom wall built-ins. Be sure to follow along on Instagram stories where I bring you along for all the behind the scenes action!
