I popped some of these down on the floor in my garage and they made a massive difference to the feel. They only cost 9 quid a pack on the trade cars too of you have one.

I think I'd have been tempted to buy a HVLP spray gun to get that painted quickly. Really handy things to have for their cost.

Mmmm..... May be something to consider... I did some sealing on the roof a few years ago (5 years I think). I still get the odd drip coming in, so need to find that and apply some more bitumen to all the places the roof sheets overlap.

To be fair, the roller was almost as wide as a panel (probably 2/3s the width) so was rather quick to paint. It was all the prepping, clearing shelves (and keeping the products arranged in the same order).

I do have some of those tiles. Had them in the conservatory when I was using it to do Insanity a few years back. I now use them to shoot products on and also have one in the boot to launch the drone from.

Sooo... Now the garage is done, that means I can start doing stuff like this with controlled lighting (might buy a blind/curtain for the windows)







Which ultimately gives me something like this:

It's looking better for the coat of paint , have you considered any sort of storage cupboards to store your product selection.

I have these in my garage.

Been in there 4 years or so now.
As soon as I laid them I put some 600 x 400mm aluminium chequer plates on top where the car tyres would sit so the car didn't squash/destroy the tiles.

Did the job and this week I shuffled stuff around which meant the car parked about 4 foot further forward.

I moved the chequer plates and the tiles were a bit flattened, naturally.
But after a few days they have found their memory and are almost the same thickness as the surrounding tiles now,

When I record YouTube videos, I always find that the product shelf looks a bit dark and like to add a little light. Well rather than messing around shining lights at the shelf (whilst also trying to keep the light out of shot), I decided to order some LED strip lights. I also have these around my besk and behind my monitor...

So, here we go

No lights


White


Red


Blue


Green


You get the idea... I can have about 20 different shades, flashing, pulsing, fading through colours etc...

Honestly, they'll probably just stay on white unless I'm going for a particular lighting theme.

And here's the desk set up



I've been on green and purple for a while, but I do tend to change them - particularly if I'm shooting video in the office.

if you hadn't stuck the Up ,, you could try them On the surface of the shelf, to light the transparent and translucent bottles from below,,, but the risk of them then highlighting the spider webs is high.
