On Sunday, I had full intentions on doing a little building. But once I walked into the garage…
Not gonna lie. It’s not easy having a single car garage for your shed, storage and workshop.
I’ve long wanted to gut this place and make it into something special. It’s all insulated with a heater and a nice door and a few other things going for it. But… it’s ugly.
“But you really don’t have time at the moment for a big redo. It’s summer holidays. This can wait until fall. Just shove the crap to the side and build!”
But… the makings of a dream workshop called me loud and clear.
So out it all went. Well, one side anyway.
But now? My poor neighbours have to deal with THAT. Goodness…
Now’s about the time when I need to do another Purge Video… remember that one?!
There’s a big difference you know.
So I painted the walls pure white.
Look how the grey cement pops now! Wow.
I have a vision you see. I want a bright, light workspace that will be pretty for pictures. While I’d adore white planked walls, it’s not in the budget. So I have some plans. But first…
This guy’s coming in. I picked this red metal rack from beside a dumpster awhile back (where I find all my pallets) and it’s been sitting on the backyard sidewalk forever.
I wasn’t 100% on what it would ultimately do… what would you use it for?
But today, I just knew.
So I did the only thing I could do… I started dragging it. Metal on concrete. Non music to the ears.
SQQQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEE creak creak EEEEEEEEEEE BAM!! whoops… sorry RV. SQQUUEEEEEEEEEEE
Nerve wracking! But…
IT FIT! And then I danced. And then I got all this new adrenaline because I had BIG PLANS! You know what I’m about to do with it, right?!
(please refrain from pinning… I know it’s tempting…)
But the best part of all?
We repurpose when we don’t even mean to around here.
What state is your “workshop” in?
