Sure, a painted garage may not seem that exciting to you but I have wanted to paint the interior of our garage for most of the 13 years we have lived in our house. And now it is finally painted!
Finally, I was able to convince my husband we needed it done.
When the painter was here a few weeks ago to give me a quote on my son’s room, I asked him to give me a quote to paint the garage…since he was here anyway. When he walked back in the house with the written estimate, my husband just happened to be in the room talking to me…what a coincidence.
Anyway, he gave me the quote and my husband says, “You might as well do it.”
Now, I had been asking Mr. C. to have the garage painted for awhile and he always thought it didn’t need it.
Plus, he thought having the drywall made the house look new!
Silly, yes but the important thing is….
It is painted!
(Thank you, Dear)
And what a difference!
I chose Benjamin Moore – Pale Oak.
It is just a hint of color so it feels white but will hopefully will hide the dirt.
We just can’t have too much change in this house at once because all of the boys like things to stay the way they are.
A few months ago I talked about possibly painting this door black but at the last minute I decided to go white again.
Painting the door wasn’t even in the price estimate but the painter had extra paint from the trim so I just had him do it.
I guess I could change it to black later when it gets dirty again.
I am also happy we decided to paint the wood railing and stairs…a much neater look than before.
Now, I just have to work on some organization in here and then the garage will be finished.
At some point, I am going to put a shelf next to the stairs for all the muddy sports shoes. That will alleviate the piling of shoes and dirt in the laundry room…hopefully!
Anyway, I am thrilled to finally have a painted garage.
I no longer feel like I have to explain to people why we still have that nasty drywall after 13 years!
Is your garage painted?
Or did I just insult you by saying drywall was nasty?
(Ours was dirty and had footprints on the ceiling from when the house was built, so it was pretty nasty.)
