3M Frameworks Couple Speak GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Last weekend I convinced my husband to install the built-in garage shelves I've been wanting for TWO years. The only reason he finally conceded to the job had a little to do with nudging from his cousin and a LOT to do with help from our next door neighbor (whom I bribed with snickerdoodles and homemade salsa). The project is done and I couldn't be happier. Best of all, my marriage is still intact after another DIY project.

 The shelves go all around the top of the garage and over the door into the house.

 We used the same concept I showed you in our built-in desk to create these shelves. The only difference are the support beams.

Remember the CoupleSpeak contest going on at 3M Frameworks' Facebook Page? Every week they give away $250 for an entertaining CoupleSpeak translation. And if you submit a CoupleSpeak video you could win $5000!!

I guess you could say our garage shelves Couple Speak included a third person and went a little something like this:

Me: It would be so nice to have overhead storage space in the garage! (I wonder how many years I'll have to say this before he gets it)

Hubby: I think you've organized things pretty well already. (I'm never helping with this project)

Cousin: I would totally help one weekend if you needed me! (I can see this is a point of contention...I should volunteer to help)

Hubby: Okay, let's do it next Saturday! (Maybe with help I can finish in one day and she'll stop nagging me)

Luckily for me, 3M sent one of their sample packs to try out and it couldn't have come at a better time. All of the products helped in making our garage shelf project go much smoother. I loved all of the 3M products (hello, Scotch Blue Tape is the BEST), but my favorite was the eye wear.

My hubby graciously posed to show off the glasses. Most protective eye wear is bulky and uncomfortable, but the 3M glasses fit comfortably on my face and my husband's, just like a pair of sunglasses.
I am so excited that today 3M has offered to give away a sample pack to ONE lucky How-To Gal reader!
