Workshop Clean Up

Sharing helps others too!

workshop clean up https://countrydesignstyle.comMy 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!

workshop insides https://countrydesignstyle.comHere’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??

taped shelves https://countrydesignstyle.comI 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!

ready for chalkboard paint https://countrydesignstyle.comI 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.

Now I can’t wait to make something!!!!

Oh yeah, there’s still that mess outside of the workshop!
