Workshop Clean Up
My little workshop needed cleaned out and up!
Usually I pull everything out twice a year. Just before winter and before summer.
I missed the just before summer clean out and up this year….ugh!
Can you believe all this was inside my little workshop?
This is more about the great idea I got while cleaning than about cleaning!
Here’s the insides getting cleaned and touch up painting! Notice there was more
junk stuff much needed tools still inside. We live next to a National forest so I get little critters inside. This time…no snakes! Whew!
You can read the 8 steps I took to turn this 6 by 8 wood shed into my workshop here.
Now are you ready for my great idea??
I added these shelves during the initial redo to hole small mason jars filled with nails, screws, and everything else a cute workshop needs. 🙂
They worked okay but I did find myself having to eyeball the jars to find just what I needed for that awesome DIY project! I didn’t want labels on the jars. Takes away from the cuteness and the labels would just get dirty. I decided to add chalkboard paint to the edge of each shelf.
My great idea…how to quickly divide and make the labels straight. Run painters tape down over each shelf!
I could have left it at that and painted but I want a tiny touch of white along the top and bottom of each “chalkboard” label.
Labels painted, chalked and the shelves filled!
Now I can’t wait to make something!!!!
Oh yeah, there’s still that mess outside of the workshop!

I’ll get to that mess in awhile. I want to admire my jars some more!
