Painting garage (concrete block) walls and ceiling
Posted 03 August 2007 - 09:34 AM
Ceiling is finished sheet rock, but they did a very poor job with the taping and spackling. I hope 2 coats of flat white paint will improve the look of it or else I might either have to retape most of it or go with a textured (sponge) finish.

Sounds like you're going in the right direction on the walls.. I personally prefer light colored walls myself. Going straight white will help out a ton with the lighting. Maybe you could just do a 3ft strip of light gray at the bottom to help break it up some..
On the ceiling, it sounds like you just got the standard 1 coat garage finish.. Its not that they didn't know what they are doing, but its pretty standard for a garage to not be completely finished like a house.. Flat paint will help to a degree, but I can pretty much guarantee you wont be satisfied.. And even if you decide to texture it, it still has to be finished or you will still be able to see pretty much everything you see now through the texture.
Good luck with the project!

.... white walls, and a light gray on the floor. White walls really help with the lighting IMO.
Ditto. I also have cement brick walls (needing re-paint ) that are white and this color really brighten things up.
