Our Garage Transformation

Hi guys!


The garage was something I wanted organized RIGHT when we moved and it got pushed to the side :((((

BUT I finally did it! 11 months later!! And I'm glad we found the perfect guy to help us, Alin. I was referred to him by the guy who installed our heated floors. His info is below!


Step 1: purge and organize


Step 2: Paint the walls, windows, and ceilings


Step 3: Install slatwalls and storage lift


Step 4: Epoxy floors


Step 5: Organize again and done!!


Paint: We used the same paint as inside our entire house. Pure White by Sherwin Williams in eggshell/ and or satin. Flat sheen on ceiling.


Slatwalls: I really didn't know if I wanted to use slat walls in the beginning because I wanted everything hidden but it made the most sense for us and was the most cost effective. I bought the proslat product from Amazon and it turned out great. The accessories can get pricy but we only used two of these boxes and have so much left over of this box.


The storage lift: This will hold 300 pounds and Alin installed this for us! I'm excited to put winter items up here in the summer and vice versa! It comes down so its easy to remove stuff and add.


The epoxy: My friends husband did our epoxy floor (he owns an epoxy company) and I did so much research on Polyurethane and polyaspartic. Essentially, he grinded down the existing epoxy (which was probably a Rust Oleum couple hundred buck product), then fixed our cracks by putting a metal rod in. He used a polyaspartic sealer which is what I heard is the best and I'm in love with it! His info is below too.


If you're into more renovation ideas, I also have posts on our kitchen, heated floors, powder bath, wood floors, lights, motorized blinds, home paint colors, our backyard, and laundry.
