Garage Make-Over

Garage-Before

You probably can tell by now, I love to build things and work with my hands. Part of purchasing my miter saw is that I want to turn my tiny shared garage into a functioning workspace for weekends and unemployment (and who knows- maybe more!).

I’m a renter living in a town house with two other roommates, so I’m tight on space, forced to make everything removable, and need to be mindful of my roommates needs. Despite all of these challenges, I’m excited to turn the above space into a functioning workshop. Not just user friendly, but girlie and fun. I want this to be a space that I look forward to spending time in, so that I have no excuses not to get to work.

Since Im very tight on space, I’m going to have to make the table for the saw myself. This is a nice first project for the saw and totally doable. The storage shelving unit (above) I recently bought for $30 at Ikea and plan to paint in the coral and gold colors below.

The stools in the top photo are going to become this fun pink color in the rendering. The peg board I need to purchase will eventually be painted mint green. I also want to buy hanging light sockets (paint the cords pink to match the stools) and then attach a gold cage to them. It’s got a steam -punk vibe to keep this space girlie and fun as well as industrial.

I’m excited to share this transformation with you, as well as all the inevitable DIY projects to come from this. Stay tuned.
