My house doesn’t have a back door to the back yard. It has a back door to a garage which has a back door to the back yard. I didn’t like having to carry food to barbecue through a dirty garage. Even though I kept it clean, it just wasn’t clean enough. I didn’t want guests to have to walk through all that. So I started making it look better. I patched holes in the walls and painted it white.
I painted some cabinets black, which I got for free from the neighbors. And added some nobs I got on clearance at Wal-Mart. It looked great but that floor!! Something had to be done with that floor. There was paint spills, cracks that have been there from before we moved in 26 years ago.
So I filled the cracks and lined out some checkerboard lines. Away I went, painting each square by hand. Bry thought I was crazy, it’s just a garage he says but he knows how much joy this brings to me. I know it’s not going to stay this way but it’s better than it was. Now as my garage door opens I get to look at this glorious sight and I’m happy! Home sweet Home.
