Over the last few days, I’ve had to turn my attention away from working on my living room, and towards packing up and clearing out the condo.
The fact is that this place has just gotten so packed full of stuff that it has made everyday life incredibly stressful, and actually makes my projects take much longer than they should as I have to navigate through the narrow pathways I’ve created through the boxes and other junk that seems to be taking over the condo, and I’m continually losing my tools in the mess and having to stop what I’m working on to find the missing tools.
I still have a couple of days’ worth of sorting, organizing, and packing to do, and then my neighbors (who have trucks…yay!) are going to help me move everything into our storage building. Then I can get back to work on my living room in a much less stressful environment.
So as I’ve been navigating around boxes and piles of stuff, and stepping over saws and other tools at every turn, can you take a guess what I’ve been dreaming of?
My own garage workshop, of course!!
Y’all, I simply cannot WAIT to have my own space…a dedicated place for my tools, paints, and other DIY stuff. And when I dream of that space, my mind usually goes to the amazing garage workshop space of Sawdust Girl (a.k.a. Sandra).
Isn’t that amazing? I’m drooling over all of that storage!! And the shallow drawers in the middle section are perfect for storing small tools like screwdrivers and pliers. The leather straps used as drawer pulls are just the icing on the cake.
And of course, she built that whole space herself. She’s so amazingly talented!!
I love the open feel of this space by The Design Den. The window gives the space such an open and light feel. Unfortunately, my space won’t have a window…at least not initially. I’ve love to add one or two in the future.
This garage from Dave Brewer Inc. has a decidedly masculine look to it. That isn’t particularly something that appeals to me, but I’m loving all of that storage space!!!
Would any of you think I’ve lost my mind if the first room I “decorate” in our new home is the garage? 🙂
Do you have a garage workshop? If you have pics online, I’d love to see it!!!
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
