One night at 8:30 pm I got this sudden urge to paint my garage.

So I went to the store, got some gel stain, and went to work!

Our house started off like this when we bought it:

Not bad by any means. But not exactly what I was wanting in curb appeal either.

I wanted to take those “pie slices” ( as I call them) off the garage and follow the brown theme throughout the house and brick.

I used this stain that I used on the mantle and voila!

It’s looking classy! Notice that those pie slice windows on the garage are off? I also found carriage door accessories that I couldn’t wait to try out but they are LOST! For the life of me I can not find where they are. They were $30 so I’m not going to buy another one, but bummer….

Missing report: if anyone knows where I put them give me a ring. This is what they look like for those that are curious

The landscaping is kind of in that awkward stage where you’re waiting for grass and plants to grow…but I’m really happy with how it is looking in such a short amount of time!

If we were doing more house projects soon (even though we’re not, we took a pact), but IF we were…I really want to do some shutters and an awning/portico!

Maybe one day. But until then…

    I had no idea you painted your garage! Looks amazing! Can’t wait to see it in person. Lol so did you really put projects on hold or not? I think not 🙂 And I love that you decided to do the garage project at 8:30 at night.
