Garage Steps

How often do you start one thing and then it evolves into so much more than you’d planned?

For me…




I went out to the garage to finish up the lockers from yesterday and to get all of our gear stored and looking tidy, when I noticed the condition of our garage steps.

I thought maybe I could get away with just sweeping and washing them down, but no such luck…

When you have a stash of paint the size of mine, and it’s this close to the steps themselves, you really can’t blame me for a re-do.


Much better, but it lead to cleaning up my workbench, emptying the central vac and washing it down, re-organizing the garage peg-board….

AND I notice that the door could use a coat as well.


Come to think of it – the walls themselves are looking a little beat up.

It’s unending.

Maybe I should just stay in bed?


Have a great one!

    this made me want to organize my garage. Until i realized it’s all my husbands stuff in there. Instead, I’ll work on the craft room/office this weekend :)

      I didn’t mean to start organizing the garage… I believe it’s called “Avoidance behaviour” – avoiding the mess that’s inside the house for the mess outside in the sunshine and fresh air! lol Thanks for taking the time to comment.

    Wow! The steps look wonderful. I’m glad you got around to re-painting them. I love how organized your garage is, Shelly. The tools on the board are exactly where they should be. Thanks for sharing another step done in your 100 Happy Days Challenge. All the best to you! :)
