PJ 259 – salvaged workshop and craft room ideas

Welcome to Party Junk 259 – salvaged workshop and craft room ideas

Every Friday, 7PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

Hello and a happy weekend to you! This week I was busy morphing my own garage into a workshop. I’m tellin’ ya, that move has been life changing. No one feels like creating in a space that is begging for a facelift.

Where do you create?

Whether you create in a workshop, craft room, office, or wherever else, I’d love to see your own repurposed ideas! I’ll feature a few of them in this post, so link those beautiful spaces up! 🙂

For the time being, here’s my own space thus far. Not done yet but it’s a great start…

Bound and determined to create a workshop I love, I can safely say I now really WANT to create in this space! The curbside table find was a treasure at 10 feet long!

A little shelf and branch combo became the perfect twine and tape dispenser.

This dumpster find turned out to be a much needed storage rack for all my hoarding tendancies where reclaimed wood comes in. Totally lucked out with that red too.

And here are a few of other’s genius ideas…

This is funky and something ANYONE can do! Love how Angie bounced the cans at different levels. Who else wants an entire wall of these?

More to come!

Now I’d love to see yours!

  1. Hi Donna. Inspired by your workshop changes. So inspired that I am working on turning my office into a small workshop (minus the saw and sanding, those have to be done elsewhere). Huge job. Thanks for PJ this week. Love joining in.

    • I am SO happy to hear that Joy! Welcome to the land of the mess… LOL It is a huge job but it’ll be your most worthwhile one. Ask me how I know. Thanks for visiting each and every week!

  2. Hi Donna,
    Thanks so much for the party. I create wherever I can. Usually it is on my deck or in my dining room. I get so frustrated not having adequate space to create. Have a wonderful weekend.

    • Oh, I do lots of that too Trish. Actually, wherever the best light is for photos! 🙂 Which is even outside at times. I need a crafting area with great lighting… that’s next in the works.

  3. I LOVE your new workshop. And that is my style, with everything found, junky and upcycled. I added my Garage and Office, all Junk decorated of course.

  4. I’m envious of your workshop in the making, Donna! My workshop is a total dump right now, and you can barely walk through it. I’m hoping next spring will be the year I *finally* turn it into the workshop of my dreams! Thanks for adding my tin can organizer. I’m actually making another one right now. I love the heck out of the original one and have it completely full. It was time to make another one.
