When you really should measure first...

There are some things in my life that my dad always mentioned I should do... one of them was measure first. From the amount of scrap wood shoved in the loft of my garage, you'd notice that I've never listened well... and here is good photographic proof: In 2008, I bought the epoxy floor covering for my garage. I have a 2-car garage and the box read something like... covers some number of square feet approximately equal to a 1-car garage...

Buying 2 boxes and planning on painting right away - 2 years later, I've given time for that epoxy manufacturer to no longer be carried in my local home improvement store.

I scrubbed all of the oil spots off of the floors, get the right temperature, dry it out... and begin my epoxying. Oops, I never measured and the home improvement store says there's no way to match my old color.

So I tried something totally different and made my own mini-masterpiece:

Now it looks like I'm just a slightly eccentric homeowner who has a flair for the creative. You should have seen the eyes of the guy at Lowe's - he thought I was nuts when I told him what I was doing :)

The only thing I wonder in retrospection is why I prefer to have people think I am eccentric than that I make mistakes?
