So, how did I do it?
Remember I started here:
And then with a whole LOT of planning I got to here:
I then had to actually install the workshop area. Everything ended up going pretty much exactly where I planned. (This proves that good planning pays off!)
I used a shelf I had to store all of my power tools and toolboxes:
I had to make sure I secured everything really well because we are in earthquake country and nobody wants a stray circular saw falling on their head:
I also set up a specific area for everything paint related. I always wanted a magnetic knife bar to hold my paintbrushes and I finally got one:
Next I added my saw bench with a pegboard above it to hold my small hand tools:
After seeing the plain white board against the wall, I decided I would "girl" up my work area and taped a pattern onto the peg board:
A little wall paint and I had this:
LOOOOVEE IT!! Seriously. I didn't even want to hang my tools because it was so pretty:
Lastly I moved in the rest of my painting/drywall gear, the trash cans, lawnmower and shop vac:
So there you have it. The finished workshop. I couldn't be much happier with it.
