Garage Paint

Choosing a paint color has never been a walk in the park for me so I’ve been dreading picking a color for the garage.  Yes people I am painting my garage and i don’t know what color yet. (Every time I tell people what I am doing, they look at me like i just told them i ate a bug) 🙂 Anyways, Bill wanted an industrial look. He wanted to have a gray monochromatic theme with the exception of black.  See, we are doing the epoxy floors from HD, which are gray and all of the shelves and storage units black.  But the thought of a grey monochromatic room freaked me out.  Its just to bla…i mean where is the creativity in that? Where is the color?

but here are our choices…


And so the winner is…

Well sort of…the winner was supposed to be matched by Sherwin-Williams to Pic # 2, which is a match from HD to BM’s Little Falls #1621. Well, Sherwin-Williams did not do a good job matching it. It looks nothing like BM Little Falls and Bill and I hate it. The color is pretty but not for the garage.  This color, whatever color it is, is more for a bathroom or a bedroom…so now I am not even sure about BM Little Falls, since I wasn’t to fond of the gray theme to begin with.  I think maybe it was a sign (hehehe) so now we are back at square one….with the help of some delicious homemade crepes…  🙂



Any ideas or pictures from your own garage you’d like to share?

    A suggestion that I think makes the garage look very nice and “neat”…I’ve seen a lot of people Beadboard around their garage. I looks nice. Love your blog by the way! I’m reading through your enteries…I think I’ll start one for Mali! lol
