Yuck, right? We're guessing the previous owners just tossed bags of trash into the garage, because this was right by the door into the kitchen. Over the last several weeks, we painted the garage. I just finished putting primer on the ceiling during Maggie's nap today, so that isn't painted yet, but it may need to wait until Spring now. Everything else is done though, and we love it! A small thing to make a big difference in the appearance of our home.
