Sometimes, on this blog, I talk about my garage doors

So we got new interior doors, right.
Well, in the midst of all the measuring and trimming and painting and installing of our new doors we were also looking for something to replace the interior paneling of our garage doors.  Mainly because our current garage door situation was . . . um, gross.  The previous owners must have kept a small herd of wild animals in their garage at night.  Wild animals that had a thing for eating styrofoam garage door paneling.  I’m not sure how else to explain this:

Our original plan was to use metal to cover the destroyed, yellowing Styrofoam panels.  But then we looked at prices and holy geez.  So we started thinking of alternative solutions: particle board, paneling, bead board, new Styrofoam, cardboard, fabric, modge podging scrapbook paper, picture collages. . . you know, that sort of stuff. 

And then one night it came to me.  The old doors {cue flashing light bulb above my head}.  Perfect size, wood, FREE.  Plus, we needed to get rid of them anyway.

So we dismantled our old straight panel, hallow doors and we did this:

I also painted the entire garage + the garage floor + got rid of the cob webs. 

Spencer deemed it one of my best ideas to date.
He obviously forgot about the time we used a circular skilsaw to cut a nylon rug.  Because honestly, ttttthhhhaaat was my best idea to date.
Err. . . NOT!

Really...who paints their garage floor? Quit being an overachiever and making people like me (who still have 1/4 of their bathroom painted after 2 years) look bad! (I only say that because I am totally jealous of you and your beautiful house and garage).
