I am moving into our first place this December and I am wanting to paint the garage floor to a) seal it and b) help me locate bolts and tools that go spinning off my hands.

Has anyone tried painting the floor of their garage, and if so with what?

I'm thinking Safety Orange because its super bright. But maybe a light blue might be more the way to go. Eventually I'll be reinsulating the entire garage and mounting refurb'd kitchen cabinets for storage.

Post up pics of your garage!

Here's my one at work, which the boss lets me use:

My garage is used for storage during the winter. Im thinking about adding on to it someday, or I may find another house with a garage more suited to my needs.

Its nice have enough space for 3+ vehicles and still have space to move around and work.... I also have a dirt floor poll barn 20ishx30' poll barn. Safe to say those were 2 of the biggest reasons for buying my house this summer.

I don't have a garage, tough the school let's us use the shop every Thursday night.
fits up to 20 machines. (Wheel loaders, Excavators, Bulldozers etc). Aswell as two washbay's and two servicebay's.

Me and my dad is looking for a new house with a two-car garage.

Well, My jeep lives at work pretty much all the time now, and I think even if I had a garage at home I'd barely use it, it's too hard to say no to a lift haha. I seem to spend most my wrenching time working on the jeep anyway, I haven't had my current Legy on there yet, but it needs to go under the knife for some minor surgery soon.

its a '67 GT..... but not a 500 lol. Just has a Eleanor body kit on it, and painted to match. Its actually a coupe too, not a fast back, which i was sketched about at first (thought it would look terrible) But turns out, i liked it twice as much as the original.

the body works all thats been done on it, and actually its not quite finished even. Still got to cut out the light holes, and finish the tail light pan. (its got the gt500 tail lights) it doesn't even have propper suspension under it, just something hobbled together so it would roll. no motor, trans, interior, nothing.
Its on hold till the '34 gets finished. as always, money is holding things to a dead stop lol.

Lighting makes ALL the difference. 4 - 100w equivalent (each only uses about 17w, I think) CREE LED Bulbs. Tube fluorescent lights are just old news now. I'll never uses anything else.

Pallet-rack shelving on back wall takes away 42" of depth, but allows versatility in storage plus a workbench and is awesome!!
It's a 1959 house so the garage has, get this ONE outlet and ONE light fixture! :sad2:

I recently upgraded to 200amp service and relocated the overhead line, so I'll be adding additional circuits to the garage; two 4-plug outlets and a couple other wall outlets, another overhead socket, a couple overhead outlets, a 110 and a 220 in the back by the service panel (back left nook where mt. bikes are hung) and a ceiling-mounted garage heater (scored at 70% off from Northern Tool supply last x-mas). I just got a MIG welder and ordered a welding table and assorted shwag for it, so I'll be reconfiguring the right wall with a fold-up working table and space for the welding table (see inspiration below), shelving and tool storage where the garden tools are currently hogging too much real estate.

My garage is boring, just a 3 bay ...
Oh, is that all? Geez. Where I live, a lot of people don't have any, some people have a one-car garage, and I'm ecstatic to have a 2-car closed garage!
Don't play it down, I'm totally jealous!

Who else has a great garage or shop area? If 5 new people post up their garage, I'll post mine up (its nothing special) but we should have a lot more showings!!
Reason, 6 people have posted their garage/shop areas since you posted this....
y'know.... in case you forgot about it.:wave:

Most people in my suburb area have 1 or 2 car garages. I was super lucky to find my house last year, it was owned by a family that worked on cars and machinery so the shop is huge and came with a lift :)

Well better late than never! First of it is ridiculously messy from my motorcycle project and the disassembly of my Legacy. I figured I'd take a pic, I'll be moving soon and started to pack up.

Standard two car garage. The right side was cleaned out today so my dad's car can be inside when he's in Houston.
