I Haven't Forgotten My Garage

Friday, May 15, 2009

Remember my first post about cleaning out my garage? Well, I am still working on it. I decided to focus on the one wall that actually has sheet rock on it. It is the wall that we see as we walk into the house, so I want it to look nice. I organized everything on that wall but felt it still looked pretty drab.

I decided to stucco this wall to hide all of the gouges and imperfections. I have spent about an hour every day this week (son's nap time) stuccoing this wall and finally finished today!!!
All I did was buy a box of joint compound and spread it on the wall. I didn't do the best job since this is the garage and I wanted to get it done quick, but I am happy with the results.

Cost of 1 box of joint compound = $7
Now I just need to choose from my selection of leftover paint. Maybe I will mix 2 colors together, or do the upper half a different color from the lower half. It will be interesting to see what I come up with.


  1. Our garage has been severely neglected.

  2. We are just about to work on our garage. We are hiring a friend to finish the drywall and then I'm hoping to paint it out and somehow organize it better. I think that will make such a difference,since we always enter the house from the garage.

    Good job on yours!
