One thing I have always wanted is a little workshop space where I can do my more heavy duty crafts. Recently I got a chance to put it together in our new studio!
I wanted a space that reflected me but one that was also heavy duty and wouldn’t fall apart after I did some heavy woodwork or upcycling. It also needed to be super organized because I have a tendency to become chaotic if everything doesn’t have a place. Read on for how I did it and what I used.
What I used
For this space I used items from Pinnacle Hardware, a modular furniture brand you can buy at Bunnings that’s built for hard working spaces like garages, workshops and sheds. They have lots of different solutions for spaces that are both organized and can stand up to lots of crafting. For this space I used:
- This workbench
- Three of these pegboards
- This drawer set
Plus a whole bunch of accessories to help organize the pegboards.
I also made a painted arch on a piece of MDF to put above the pegboards, I used British Paints ‘Wollemi Pine’ for that.
How I Put the Space Together
The furniture came flat packed but it was relatively easy to put together. To give it a little extra wow factor I painted the pegboards, first applying a metal primer and then British Paints ‘Wollemi Pine’. I made the arch for the top using a similar method to this one, but this time did it on a piece of MDF board rather than directly onto the wall and then just nailed it to the wall. I like that it gives the space flexibility and it means I can move the workshop around as my plans for the studio evolve.
