Tucked away on Lake Champlain in Vermont, the DIY Network Ultimate Retreat 2017 is a cozy wooded escape with breathtaking views. As a sponsor, we were thrilled to bring our organizing expertise to this amazing renovation. And more than a little sorry we're not eligible to win it!

Featured Products: Platinum elfa utility // Whitewashed Wooden Storage Bins with Handles

One of the biggest transformations was the garage. This gorgeous space was a big addition to the original structure. And thanks to our elfa custom shelving, it's completely organized and ready for any project. We installed elfa utility along the main wall, creating a ton of accessible storage space for tools and other garage essentials. A bank of smooth-gliding Mesh Drawers holds everything from lightbulbs to paint rollers and is topped by our nearly indestructible elfa utility Work Surface - making it the perfect place for projects. Tools are kept handy and organized on the utility Boards. Ventilated Shelves hold Weathertight Totes, Wooden Storage Bins with Handles, coolers - even lumber!
