I hope you all had a productive weekend! Mine was fairly good! You should have seen me–I had my first real taste of POWER TOOLS over the weekend while building my mailbox post from scratch <<<insert bad-ass high five here>>>.
I won’t go into the details of that yet, because I’m not done. I’m finding that many of my projects are like that: start on a Saturday, and 3 months later–SUCCESS!–I’m done! hahaha. Do you find yourself in that same situation? It’s so tough having 3 kids, a full-time job, and feeling pulled between fulfilling your responsibilities and wanting to just zone out with a paint brush or power tool in your hand. SIGH…..But, hey– we accomplish what we can, right?
So that “garage-turned-awesome-workshop,” which I had set a “done” date for November 30th, still isn’t done. Not for lack of trying, mind you… But take a look at these “before” pics and see how dramatic just a coat of paint can work magic on any room–especially for a beat-up garage!
(But before I show you my garage, please read to the end. I’m giving away $240 worth of stuff this week! WOOT!)
A few pics first…..
The walls were super dingy and scuffed. And that floor??? Don’t get me started….
I’ve got an amazing built-in work bench and pegboard area, but it’s always been covered in junk and I could never use it. Now will be a different story!
IN PROGRESS…..see how a coat of white paint totally transforms anything?! And I’m not even done yet! 🙂
Believe me when I say I TRIED to clear out the garage so that it was totally bear. But there comes a point when you toss up your hands and say, “Already, we need a solution!” Thus, move everything to the middle of the garage so you can work arooooooound the junk 😉
But look at how dramatic just a coat of white paint is?!? Basic, boring white….but see how pretty it’s coming along?!
So the major tool that I’m using for this project is the Home Right Heavy Duty Paint Sprayer. I usually hate using rollers that require you to keep bending down to reload. So I prefer paint sprayers (and I also like the HomeRight EZ Twist Paint Stick) that allow you to cover more wall without stopping. The heavy duty paint sprayer worked really well! I recorded a demo and review of the paint sprayer. CLICK HERE TO WATCH MY VIDEO. It’s pretty entertaining, too. LOL
We’re Giving All This Away: $240 Value!
I really love the peeps at Home Right. They’re soooo easy to work with, and make really awesome tools that don’t cost a lot of money. I asked them if they’d be willing to give away THREE of their products (valued at $240) for a big holiday giveaway, and they couldn’t wait to find a winner! So I teamed up with my homie Trisha over at BlackandWhiteObsession to bring you this amazing trio giveaway of my favorite HomeRight products!!! Seriously, how cool is this??
