My dream would be to have a workshop where there is a place for everything and everything is in its place ... but I'm realistic enough to admit that this will probably never happen. At the very least, I will be satisfied with having a general idea of where to look for most of my tools and supplies.
Today, I concentrated my efforts on the east wall of the workshop. When I started, that area looked like this:
So much of this is stuff is here because it was displaced by the water main work. Other things have been sitting there for weeks.
Doesn't the scene remind you of the photos that the original archaeologists took in King Tut's tomb?
This wall is supposed to be a work space with cabinets above it. The way I had the various cabinets and things arranged just wasn't working, though. It took a few hour's work, a quick trip to the Habitat ReStore for another kitchen drawer base cabinet, and some rearranging of things I already had. I'm really pleased with what I ended up with.
I have had these yellow cupboards forever, and they have just been sitting around without a purpose. For now, I will use them upside down like this, just sitting on the counter top ... till I figure out if it is possible to mount them securely to the soft brick wall.
There you have it. It's a start, and I still have a LONG way to go till this room is acceptable. The top of my work island is still piled high with all sorts of stuff ... I'm okay with that for now, because I know that I will (hopefully) put it to rights very soon.
