Garage Progress: Walls and Ceilings

Progress on the complete garage renovation is progressing slowly.  The workshop is in, and slowly the walls are being repaired, but it has been a lot of work.  So far everything is going pretty much according to the original plan.

 I am  leaving the rough shelves that were installed in the garage when we moved in, and am putting my mudroom built-ins right next to the door into the house. Here is the high resolution mydeco.com floorplan design for those walls:
Here is what that area looked like the day we moved in:
Although you can't tell from that photo, there were hundreds of nails in that wall that needed patching:
Then it needed two coats of green paint and a chalk outline of where the new built ins were going to be installed:
I was able to conserve on my Sisal paint by only painting the parts of the wall that were going to show. And then, as I previously described, I added the built ins:
Oh yes, I am still glowing with love for them!

I also started patching and skim coating the ceiling and just like the other walls, I am using leftover green paint as primer to save a few dollars.  I may actually leave the ceiling green since it is really bright and doesn't look half bad against the brown walls:

Slowly but surely we are getting there.  Only one more wall and half the ceiling to go!

Thank you for your understanding.


  1. WOW! Your mud room built-ins look fabulous. I wish my garage looked half as great.

  2. I LOVE the shelving unit!! I need something like that in my basement! OH and THANKS SO much for the sweet words.. hopefully we will be blessed!

  3. Can you come over and paint my garage. Acutally, can you come over and put up drywall, then sand the drywall and then paint it? It looks awesome so far - can't wait to see it done!


Thanks for your comments. I try to get back to anyone with a question.. so please make sure to leave an email address if you want a reply!
