I think anyone that crafts, DIY’s, or putters at any hobby should have a toolbench. One space allocated to just that hobby.
A place where you can find everything you need with just a reach.
I don’t however, think you should spend a lot of money on it.
Case in point – I got this unit from Kijiji for FREE!
It was basically brown plywood that someone had stained.
It did have upper shelves, so I’m assuming it was a microwave cabinet or something like that.
I wanted it for the counter top.
I didn’t paint the insides since it’s just housing paints, glues and tools – so you can see what it looked like “before”;
Not pretty, but functional.
It’s nice to have the ‘harmfuls’ tucked away and out of sight of temptation.
I can just slide the doors closed and no one is the wiser about the ugly interior, or all the gear it holds.
I removed the shelves from the upper section and inserted a peg board. I knew I wanted to have my tools hanging and within easy reach.
Please excuse the paint on the counter top – but that’s what it’s for.
The turquoise is a little loud, but it’s the garage – I didn’t have any decor rules that needed to be followed. Besides – it matches our bike rack.
So, for a grand total of FREE – and with minimal hours in labour – you too can have your own little hobby refuge.
