Once upon a time my basement workspace looked like…
I spent last weekend cleaning the workspace for the Heap of Change Challenge. If you missed the post you can find it at Heap of Change Challenge Basement Work Area.
This past weekend I added some very much needed storage space. Trust me, I need it.
I love how Donna from Funky Junk Interiors used a pallet for storage in her work area, so that’s what I decided to start with.
I started with two fairly new pallets.
I attached the top of the pallets to the rafters using small pieces of pallet wood to prevent them from falling forward.
If you look closely you’ll see the bottom of the left pallet is facing the camera and the bottom of the right pallet is facing away.
The left pallet will be used for shelves and the right pallet will be for hanging tools.
I could’ve mounted them on the wall, but decided to keep the wood away from the concrete walls and why add holes to a sealed basement if I don’t have to.
Next, I added a strip of trim to the bottom of the pallets and the edge of the workbench.
Added a few nails, screws and tools.
I wonder how long it will stay this neat. Probably not very long.
I’ve got more plans for my little work area, but this will have to do for now. With hubby in the hospital my creative time is limited.
Stay tuned for work area updates!
