Pin It I spent under $100, but gained several tools, supplies and time by organizing my basement workshop.
Here are a few of the mess - aka The Before:
Added shop lights (which had to be the best improvement in my opinion). Now I can see where the tools and supplies are located.
Added peg board (it was spray painted black, but started as the drab brown).
Added those little peg board holders. Note - they are in the closet section of the hardware store, not where they sell the peg board. Added $1 tubs to the upper shelves to store items too big and bulky for the board.
Now everything has a home and there is room to grow. I still need to label the bins since I can't remember what is in the 20 bins, but I figure this is a big improvement so far.
Reused old floor tiles from the kids old playroom. Makes the concrete floor nice when standing for a long time.
Bins underneath all have a theme - electrical, tiling, hardwood flooring, plumbing. And there is room from some of the tools. However, once I get the saws and a workbench up in the garage (to keep the sawdust out of the house) this layout may change.
Yay! And the winner for most productive weekend goes to this project.
