Being that Ernie has stolen my car I needed a new project. So after having a new shed installed I finally managed to completely clear out my garage. Now I can put the wife's 300C inside as well (she has been after me for months to do this). Today I am power washing and prepping the floor. Tomorrow I am going to lay down grey Epoxy paint with the color chips. I am doing one side this weekend and the other during the week.
I am going to install 4 / 2 bulb four foot long fluorescent lights as well. Now the question is what to do with the walls? Just paint? Peg board? Cork board?
Anyone see anything different out and about? Suggestions?

Nice... good for you... but don't ask me, my garage is a mess! LOL I keep my 06 Mag SRT8 and my 89 Turbo Gran Prix with 7K miles, (this was the pace car from the movie, DAYS OF THUNDER), in the garage along with all my other junk!

I say peg board so that you can use it to store some of your tools. But, that's just me.
Look into peg board paneling. Or you could hang regular peg board vertically and paint it.I had the paneling on one wall at one time,it worked well and looked good also. If you think you want to hang cabinets, I've seen a way to do it with a track system that works well. With the "home made" track system ,I think you can use any kind of cabinets.
Do you think the floor will be dry enough to paint tomorrow?
I have a locking (I have two young sons that like to take things apart) 3 section Craftsman tool cabinet on wheels for my tools. I'm going to buy a locking full height cabinet on wheels to replace the open rack I have now. This way I can keep all my car related items in that with out worrying about stuff falling.
Sounds like its coming together. Maybe when your done, I can come over and get some ideas for my little garage.
What ever you do on the walls, I would suggest keeping them white, or very light in color. Putting darker coloring on the walls will really make the garage darker than you want. The lighter color will reflect light and make for a brighter work area.
