I’m a HUGE Pinterest fan, but, as my husband so eloquently commented, “You pin a lot more than you actually do anything with!”
Yes, he got “the look” for that, but he’s absolutely right. I have thousands of pins…because who can help it? Once you get on there, you just keep going! You know what I mean, right?
However, there was one idea I pinned a few weeks ago that I KNEW I would come back to and use. So, here it was:
Our big project over the weekend consisted of spending 6.5 hours in the garage at our new home.
While the interior of the actual house has been painted and has had new floors laid, the same could not be said about the garage. I’m not sure what the original color of the garage walls were…but they were less than dingy when we bought the house. We really aren’t accumulate-a-ton-of-tools-and-junk-and-do-projects-in-the garage-all-the-time people, so we really wanted to give it a nice makeover.
First step: cleaning. It’s funny; when you buy a home that has been lived in previously, you’re suddenly VERY conscious of all the dirt and grime from the people who lived there before! (Since all we had to clean up on the inside of the house was a little construction grunge, we were thoroughly baptized with the garage!
Second step: painting the walls and the door. We painted the door and all the walls good ol’ white, except for one wall. That one wall took the longest, but it is now a beautiful teal…”Seafaring Teal”, to be exact.
It all started when I saw this picture…
Now THAT is a BEAUTIFUL laundry room!!! I loved the color combination of the teal and the white – so fresh and clean! Yes, I even liked the chandelier, ha!
