Paint the walls white. That will give you much more light as well..

Looks great! I didn't realize how bad the lighting in my garage was until I finally put up a bunch of LED shop lights.

I ended up with these:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NZCXZK6

They're relatively cheap, and they link together so you can just hardwire them in at one end of the run. I tried the 6500K version first, but I couldn't stand how blue they looked. I had a 5000K LED bulb that I compared to as well, but it still gave me that psych ward feel. 4000K is just about right to me. It looks natural without looking overly yellow.

It's definitely nice having little or no shadows, like you said. I no longer have to use a cordless work light for everything I'm doing in the garage. Every time I turn on the lights, I'm pleased with how bright it is.

Just echoing this thread. I replaced all my 8 with the 5k LED two years ago. My first thoughts, holy hell I need to clean! I just thought it was my old eyes and got used to it. What a difference and no hum

I converted my old 8 foot florescent lights two years ago to the 8 foot LED tubes, 6500 K - 4500 lumen . Never had this much light. I just turn them on now to brighten my day very easy to do other than it being sort of high in the air
Those lights are so good I could see that John Deere GT262 hood!. I just bought 1 and sadly it has been a misadventure so for.
I need better lighting in my shop for sure. Those LED"S sure are lighting up you folks shops very well.

I had wired my shop with old style socket lights and as time went on (faster as you get older) I needed more light. i bought some of those lED 3 paddle lights and screwed them in. They let you aim them in any direction and work great.

I have two of those paddle ones above my workbench in the basement. They are wonderful as well.

Good lighting in a workshop is always a must have. Nice job! It shouldn't be any problem painting the walls with a compressor like you have.

LOL, got it covered. Lower 8' of the walls is 3/4 plywood painted white and the upper is green tin reclaimed from the dairy barn. I did all the painting with a roller before putting up shelving moving tools in ect, back in 2015
