The garage painting project

I spent Memorial Day weekend prepping and painting the garage. First, I had to de-lichen it with a spray cleaner and a broom. Then, I sanded the door frames. That was followed by caulking and masking off windows, door frames, a light, and my clothesline.

I took some before and after photos. You can't really see the lichen as well as you could in person. The after effect is amazing and I'm happy with how it looks. What do you think?

And then there's me....who's only gotten as far as 'thinking about' scraping and painting the trim on the garage and house this year.

Impressive work!

The preparation is often an important thing to remember and can sometimes be overlooked. Making sure the surface is clean with water is easy to do with a water hose, and it sets up a canvas where you can paint or apply siding in a reasonable amount of time to achieve a beautiful look on the garage.

What a great choice of color! I would have chosen a similar tint as my wife and I have a similar looking home. I just hope that you've made sure that your garage door is in working order as well. You never know when trouble might come!
