My Tuff Shed Workshop – Reveal

I can’t believe the time has come. My workshop is finally DONE!!

I have spent months personalizing my new Tuff Shed to become a full DIY workshop for me and my projects. Over the summer, Tuff Shed delivered and built my new Premier Pro Tall Ranch in our backyard within a few hours. I was so thrilled with the idea of turning it into a space dedicated to my future projects and for all of my tool storage.

Over the following months I worked to slowly transform the shed into the workshop of my dreams, beginning with the exterior. I then worked my way inside and started by creating a large tool storage system. And for some beautiful character adding wood planks to the walls and ceiling. My vision for the space was a place that is bright, airy, and inspiring for me. And it turned out much more beautiful and inspiring than I could’ve imagined! 

Before doing any of the aesthetic work…I used the help of my Father-in-Law to run electrical to the shed. I wanted to be able to use this workshop year round, so finishing it completely was the best option. After running electricity, we installed a Mini Split for Heat/Air.

I was never planning on actually designing the space for aesthetic purposes. In fact, my intentions were to only leave it completely functional. But once it started all coming together, I could not resist. I added some Ikea drawer units for functional and beautiful tool storage and topped that off with a beautiful butcher block countertop.

I stained the wood walls for some beautiful warmth in contrast to a painted creamy white ceiling. Both have such beautiful texture. I finished it all off by adding some decorative elements. I installed faux marble vinyl tiles on the floor. All these things brought it to the next level and I could not be happier how how it looks and FEELS. Now I get to feel so much inspiration and satisfaction by just existing in the space. I can’t wait for all the projects that will come to life in here and all of the sketches and ideas that will be born.

  1. This shop is just soooooo lovely. I saw the TS commercial just this morning, and had to look up this model. Which led me to your blog. Thank you for sharing your info on this build.
    May I ask what all this set you back?
    I’m looking at starting to budget for an outdoor studio/workshop for my more messy projects. 😉😉 I hope to have something like this in the next couple of years. Enjoy your space!!! It’s awesome.
