Thanks I can’t take credit for it .. I just bought this house like 2 month ago ..  finally got my own garage .. but they like snap together plastic Jobbys .. they are certainly nice though .. easy sweeping..

Yeah, who cares? Old poly inside on a bench back wall?

Yer just gonna cover it with shelves and tools and boxes and bins anyway. :)

 

I did my buddy's "boathouse" back in '05 with blue and black, but it was the diamond plate pattern. You got the  round ones.

If I were doing it fancy, I'd go with Formica type laminate. You can get most things you'll spill on it off pretty easy either with thinner or a scraper, and peel the whole sheet off with a heat gun and replace it if it actually gets destroyed somehow. I once covered a table with leftover laminate flooring planks!

Anything that keeps little screws and nails and such from running off the edge is always well worth the effort.
