Shades of Grey
So let’s talk shop.
These shelves. They’re part of the garage. They came with our house and are nothing less than amazingly functional. I mean they offer some serrrrrriousssss storage and we love them for that.
The bare wood, however, not in love with that part. They just seemed naked. This DIY Rookie could not be be having naked shelves peeking out of her garage. No thank you.
To combat the nakedness…paint! Shades of grey paint. No, not 50 shades but enough to get rid of the awkward nakedness forever. (naked, 50 shades, this post sounds way dirtier than it is!)
To kick off the anti-naked campaign, I taped off the wall to prevent shades of grey from dripping elsewhere.
I then slapped on some white primer.
And followed that up with several coats of grey.
Before long, my naked shelves were “prettified” and looking far less vulnerable. And the part that Matt loves…I was ready to start discussing organizing the garage.
I’ll keep ya posted when we decide on how to organize these bad boys, but don’t wait around. It’s not looking like we’re taking those steps anytime soon. (shh……. that second part is between me and you).
