Here we go!
I live in a 800 sq. ft. condo in Chicago and I do all of by building and projects in our family room. Whenever I have my workbench out, Terry and Rooney have to step around me and I can only bring a few tools out at a time, or I make a big 'ole mess. I also don't have a garage or any outdoor space so if I need to paint or stain, I need to use low odor, quick drying options.
When we first moved into this condo, I felt really discouraged and was afraid I wouldn't be able to build as much as I wanted to. But now I know that I can build anything here, I just need to be smart about how I do it.
Here's a peek at how I set up my workspace in our family room. When I'm not working, all of this gets packed up and stored in a closet.
<<Side note...we have a distinct lack of decorations up right now. We moved in 2 months ago and just haven't gotten to it yet... I swear, we have a plan! Kinda...
Ooh, side note number two...see that bare piece of furniture in the background? Whelp, that's a bookcase I made with Ana White plans. A post on that is in the near future! >>
