Just finished having a 30'x30' detached garage/workshop built. Am currently wiring it and should be finished with that Saturday.

Am wanting some ideas on finishing the interior. Walls are 9' and want to stay away from finished sheetrock if at all possible. Don't mind using it as a backing but hate finishing it out to paint. It also has a bonus room above it but not worried about that right now.

Have any of you done some interesting things with your garage? If so please post pics.

Am thinking of going with treadplate and rustic dark grey laminate horizontal planks on the walls but am open to other ideas. I have waited for 15 years for this garage so I want to do it right.

I had a buddy who ran up on some Pine boards. They looked like they came off a pallet with nail holes in them and knots but they were longer. Probably in the 6 foot range. He did his entire garage interior walls with them. They were just rough cut wood but it looked nice. They were 1x4 and 1x6 boards. I've thought about doing my front wall with something like this if I can find them.

Sister-in-law's husband posted this online. I just had to steal it and change the page on screen to tndeer. \:\)

Seriously though, the knotted pine paneling is hard to find, but it really sets off a room. My aunt had it all through her house, and I loved the look.

Kind of off topic but did ya ever hear of wormy chestnut..boards from the mature American Chestnut trees after the blight.

Knotty pine was very popular back in the 50s and looks nice.

A neighbor used something similar to T111 board on his entire garage and wish I had thought about it. Put a screw or nail anywhere you want.
