I am always amazed by how much paint can completely transform a space.

A few weeks ago I teamed up with a group of talented bloggers in the $100 Room Challenge. I am blown away by the talent in this group and all they were able to do for $100!
When I introduced the garage as my space for this challenge, I knew that I would be cutting the $100 budget really close. Prior to the challenge I had organized the garage quite a bit and was able to get a majority of the stuff off the floor.
I may have missed the mark, but I feel better about the project.
To clean, prep, and repair parts of the floor was going to take a huge chunk of the budget. The step by step tutorial was very straight forward. However, it also required a little bit of patience and waiting. It was during the prep that I realized I would need an Rust-Oleum anti skid additive to the Behr Concrete and Garage paint, which ultimately put me over the $100 budget.
Since this is a space that we are constantly in and out of, I didn’t want anyone to slip and fall.
How did it turn out?
I am thrilled with how clean the garage feels. Which I realize sounds like an oxymoron since garages have a tendency to be a little dirty.
I wanted a space that I feel proud to work in, just like my home office. After all, I spend a lot of time in the garage working on projects.
We’re not the only ones to notice the change. Friends walk through and comment how much cleaner and organized the garage feels too.
Even though I went over the budget by about $16, I was able to achieve what I set out to do. I still have a little bit more work to do finally say the garage is done, but I’m a lot closer to the finish line.
Don’t forget to check out the final reveals for the other amazing spaces and let me know what you think!
