A total tear down in the workshop… So at this point I feel like we need to take a little step back to appreciate the amount of work yours truly did that yours truly just destroyed lol. At one point this room really worked for me and I was really happy with it. I put a ton of work into lining the walls with barn wood, making shelves and even more hours of work painting out all the wood, trim and ceilings in black paint. I’m not going back on that black… I still like the color scheme fortunately because it would take ALOT to cover it up.

Here’s a few shots along the way starting with my first “workshop reveal” right after I got it all painted out, I was so proud!

Come see how I converted my extra bedroom into my brand new workshop space with black ceilings, teal walls and pine hardwood floors! Workshop Reveal

Exterior Door - Replacing a Window with a Door in the Workshop. Moving an outside door to a different room to save on heating costs.

Figuring out how to make a workshop office combination actually make sense. Lately I've been spending more and more time working

The final reveal of our office workshop! I'm sure its old news at this point but I'm just so happy with my new office here. How long

The next reveal came after Lodi and I replaced the window with a door and then the next reveal happened when I moved my office in here. And then, finally, the last pics are of where we were before the tear down.

Funny how each one of those reveals was at least a year (if not years) a part!

But I’m finally to the point where I’m ready for this to feel like just a regular room again. (Crazy color scheme besides…)

And after all the work I’ve put into this space and the garage I can finally say I’ve gotten there!

Besides three tables (that were prohibiting me from taking better pictures) I managed to completely empty what was once a room that felt suffocating with stuff.

And when I say empty I actually really mean that because, besides my computer and a rug, there is NOTHING else in the wings that has to come back in here… It feels like a miracle lol.

Initially I had been on the fence but when I got to this point I decided to tear down all of the wood…

One Sunday afternoon I just tackled it.

Isn’t it amazing how something that could take so many hours take all of twenty minutes to take down?

It was almost sad!

Two loads in our yard cart was all it took to haul all that hard work out of here to our bon fire pile.

Of course, that’s not all its going to take to truly remove all that work I did…

As you can see the walls are in terrible shape.

I knew when I glued (and nailed) the wood up that there would be hell to pay if I ever went to tear it down. I’m not mad at my past self… at least I knew what to expect.

So there will be a whole other VERY boring blog post coming out of lots of pictures of sheet rock mud drying…

I feel I’m going to deserve a whole blog post about it though because fixing these walls is going to take me a lot of time.

Not to mention (kind of hard to see in the photos) there’s a couple of outlets I had added that I plan on pulling out. I had snaked them in from the back wall of Lodi’s room when I renovated initially because I wanted extra outlets here.

At the time I cut the wood to fit them so they were to building code but they (obviously with the wood gone) are not to up to code anymore.

We already have four outlets in this room plus an outlet in the closet… It is enough. So I’m just going to uninstall them and pull the wire out completely.

After hitting my head on it a few times I also took out the lower light I had added a few years ago too…

So that’s why this room looks so terrible right now lol.

But if there’s anything I’ve learned about renovation things generally look the worst before they look their best!
