Prior to having twins, we were in the garage A LOT. Alex would build custom tables and other pieces, and I worked on a lot of DIY/painting projects. Our garage turned in to a baby item storage facility, and it felt like a gigantic junk drawer. The dark paneled walls were straight from the 80s, and Alex's work bench/tool area was a nightmare. I wanted more organization and space for projects, and Alex wanted storage for his tools.
Alex and I took off from work for the week, while the Lowe's and the East Coast Creative team (producers of the show) came in. The team was with us from about 8am till 6pm every day. We found out we were selected a little over a month prior, but weren't given any info on what they would be doing. It was a complete surprise. I was excited, Alex was nervous. I knew no matter what they did it would look 10 times better than what it previously looked like. Alex was worried about his tools and workbench area.
I had a TERRIBLE cold and could not hear out of my ears during filming so I sound super nasally. I also had to blow my nose off camera every 30 seconds while shooting.
I'm obsessed with my garage now, and YES it still gets dirty because we have a million bikes and strollers, but it's MUCH more organized and the white walls are a complete game changer. The mudroom is my absolute favorite feature, and is perfect for when my kids are all in school. I have a very small foyer, so I desperately needed a mudroom to throw all of our shoes and backpacks.
