With the car show season over, there's not much to do on weekends. Maybe it's time to clean out that 2-car garage and make it look nice.
Just a bit of background. When we bought the place, 1/5 of the garage was taken up by a probably-not-kosher-with-the-building-inspectors carpeted mudroom/dark room. A nosy neighbor ratted us out and I had to quickly take out the walls and carpeting. There's black spongy gunk on the floor where the carpet used to be. There are also 2x4s nailed to the asbestos-laden (I believe) ceiling that outlines the former walls.
- clean and paint the floor
- have one large clean wall to tastefully hang 50-state license plate collection and various automotive memorabilia
- install attractive and functional storage/shelving on opposite wall
If you have any ideas or sources (books, websites) of ideas, please share. I own a small tool box of very basic tools and can barely close the hood of a car. So go easy on me. Oh, and the budget is around the $750 range.
