Do you need a creative space?
Have an old shed or garage space?
Let’s turn it into a creative space with these resourceful ideas in the Workshop Series.
Below is an 8 part series where I took a 6 by 8 foot wooden shed and turned it into a woodworking shop. The steps and ideas would work for any creative activities. My budget was $300. In the end I had enough leftover for a cup of coffee.
I’m talking about a big cup of coffee.
Inside I manage two large worktables, table saw, large tool box, planner, miter saw, drill press, hand tools, paint, plus more nails and screws than I will ever use.
In part 1 the little wood shed was emptied, painted and restained the wood flooring
Part 2 was my plan of action
Lighting and electricity was easily solved in part 3
Part 4 explains how to fit two large worktables, add storage and still have floor space
More storage ideas are in part 5…no plastic allowed
Part 6 was the hardest for me; working with cement
The most fun came in part 7 the small accessories
The ribbon cutting is part 8 and a check back to see if I accomplished all my needs and plans in part 2
