When I got my house, I knew the garage needed to be painted. I don't know why but they didn't take very good care of it. Dirt, bugs and whatnot had been a problem. While a flat finish is most common for ceilings, I wanted to do mine in satin for the durability of it. I found some Valspar Reserve (which is their best kind of paint) quarts that ended up at Ollie's for not that much and they were ironically less in a quart than they were in a gallon size. The color is just plain Valspar White which is a little more "gray" white than their super-white known as Ultra-White.
