So first.... the before!!! The garage was AWFUL! As someone who likes things to be clean and organized, this space was not working for me. It was yuck to have to come home to everyday. And after we moved in we still had a bunch of boxes stacked up in the garage for at least 8 months. So these before pics were actually the best it had looked before the re-do.
First I will acknowledge Raeleigh in the pic who was helping us clean up. =) Then I will point out... orange lamps I was trying to sell on Craigslist, hanging clothes from my garage sale I had months ago and poorly piled on shelves that did not give us the room we needed for storage.
A closer shot of the shelves.
The rest of the other side. (Pretend you don't see that headboard(a future project).) But do notice all of the holes we had to patch on the walls!

And now, look at this door! Puke!
And the trim! Now... the door handle is okay, BUT we actually put that in when we first moved in.
More of the door, trim and dirty wall.
Getting there! (Yes Raeleigh had spilled a drink all over her dress.)
And now the afters! So, what did we do? Patched and painted all the walls a light gray. And we used a satin finish so the walls could be cleaned. The had been previously painted with what appeared to be a flat or eggshell sheen so they just looked so dirty! We also patched, primed and painted all the trim. And as you can see I painted the door black. I love my black door and have always wanted to try painting a door black and this was the perfect one to do it on.
This is what I get to come home to now. So much better.
A better shot of these shelves. I will eventually put labels on these totes but for now I do know where to find everything.
And now lets compare the door and trim side by side.
And another B&A.
I'm very pleased with this improvement!
