Murphy's law:

i got 2 2 car kits of the epoxy paint.. enough to do 1000 sq ft..

well of course i ran out with hardly any undone area..
burt i could not leave an unpainted area in the middle of the garage.. so i had to spend 60$ for a 1 car kit to do about 30 sq ft worth of area..

Oh well i guess i have extra for touch ups...

Better than painting yourself into a corner... Looks like you painted yourself in an inquisition square smack in the center of your own grage! :D

Looks nice, SJ....Great job.

What I wanna know is .............did you set in that unpainted spot until the paint cured before you could get out or were you painting the floor by hanging from a rope suspened from the ceiling joists?
Usually folks paint themselves into a corner, not the center of the floor:D

i strung a rope up above me over the rafters.. shimmied up... then strattled the floor beams till i made it to the attick floor and went to the stairs...

:furious:

the last session was when i thought id have enough to finish that spot.. to the left and back of it....had already been painted a few days prior

I don't think it looks goofy. Since you put them higher on the wall, you have room for cabinets, or work bench under them. Short handled tools could also be hung under them.

Really shaping up well SJ! :thumbsup:

That is nice! No, you can never have too many shelves, or storage space of any kind for that matter!

Good Job!

Nice job SJ. Looks good.

Unless you have other uses for that wall I would stick with the shelves. You realy can never have to many, and being high on the wall, they will be out of the way, and great for those things you need to put SOMEWERE, but dont use to much.

Funny.... people always bust on me for putting my shelves up to high. Then I explane to them that at a little over 6'2" with long arms, they are JUST perfict.:D
