Project Description add commentupload similar

This is a small step in the garage that we keep tripping over.  To keep our hips in tact and the lawsuits away we put down a yellow line to help point it out.  Common sense tip:  either use a paint brush to paint or make sure the newspaper is well secured.  You'll see how the spray paint got under the paper in some spots.  Overall, easy and effective home project.  Took about 30 mins to do, besides the drying time.

This looks easy and would solve an important safety problem.
