Garage {Mini} Makeover

I've had this post planned out for a couple months now (yikes, I know) but I've been slacking when it comes to blogging  lately.  I don't really have any super great excuses, just laziness I guess.  I have high hopes to share more blog posts with you all, so don't give up on my just yet.

Alright, ready to check out what's been taking me so long to share?  It's our garage mini makeover!  Nothing super crazy was done, just some good old fashioned painting and organizing.  Here's what our 2 car garage looked like before.

For the first part of the mini makeover I decided to paint the steps.  I used the same brown paint that we chose for our walls (which we painted about 2 1/2 years ago when we first moved in).  I also chose to spice it up a bit by painting them white as well.  We always have at least 3 cans of white paint on hand so this mini stair makeover ended up being 100% free! Love that.

Then we picked up 2 white utility stands for our storage needs from our favorite home improvement store Lowes. We were able to use our military discount to score 10% off our entire order. I think our total order for both shelves was around $50.  Not too shabby.

Ready to see the after?

I will admit I was a little worried about painting our garage steps white but these pics were actually taken a few weeks after I painted them and believe it or not they still look crisp and clean.  I used paint specially made for high traffic areas so maybe that's been the trick to keeping them so nice.  I'm hoping the white still looks great once winter comes around. 

So that's our mini makeover, garage edition! Thanks so much for stopping by. 


  1. It looks great! Much more clean and crisp.

  2. Doesn't it feel so nice to makeover a utility space like the incentive to keep it clean an organized too. Great mini makeover!
