When you become a homeowner you go to Home Depot a lot more then you ever thought you would and you do things you never thought you'd care about like pay good money for rocks and paint floors. I've been dreading the day we'd face the garage for a while but it's one of those projects you just have dive in and do at some point like it or not. If it were up to me I'm not exactly sure when this would have happened...if ever! I came home from work Friday exhausted. All I wanted to do was sit down and watch TV but Mj was already out in the garage working so I did what any good wife would do. I dragged my tired butt out into the heat, complained about how hot and tired I was and then joined in the fun.

Step 4: Move some of the things in our storage closet under the stairs out into the garage. This closet has has also become a dumping ground that could use some organization. Some of the things in that closet can go into our newly re organized garage so we can organize the closet and make room for other things in there.
Most of the indoor house projects I've been wanting to do have come to a screeching halt so it was nice to get something accomplished even if only to the part of the house where our cars live. A garage has always been sort of a scary place for me. It's dark, dingy, dirty and creepy crawly things hang out there. Ideally, our garage will feel a lot less like something out of a horror film once it's clean, organized and user friendly. How can you be afraid of a room with a shiny pretty floor accented with blue, black and white sprinkles?
