The Workshop community includes many people passionate and skilled in tackling D.I.Y. projects, so it’s no surprise that they spend plenty of time making their garage and shed both functional and a great place to work.


Some have even transformed old garages and sheds into wonderful new spaces to extend their living area and increase the value of their homes. 


If you need inspiration for how to transform your workspace, check out the following list of the Top 10 most popular garage and shed projects on Workshop by pageviews:

 EpoxyGarageFloor.jpgThis garage floor transformation has been the most popular project on Workshop in any category 

1. Epoxy Garage Floor Project by @maknilsin


Workshop’s most popular project. Whether you have an old garage floor or just want to improve the look of a new one, this is a brilliant example of what can be achieved with a simple D.I.Y. floor coating kit.


2. Cordless drill storage charging station by @Wayne


Experienced woodworker Wayne has shared many fantastic projects with the community, but none have been as popular as this very clever storage solution for cordless drills. Wayne also made a second version earlier this year.


3. Garage storage project by @boris


While sadly unfinished, this custom garage storage solution has inspired many Workshop visitors and members alike. It’s clear that having an organised, clutter-free garage is a common goal.

4. New workbenches by @Rodney


We admire the research that went into this practical workbench. Rodney had “never built anything serious” previously, but his planning work to create plenty of storage and work space really paid off.


5. She-shed renovation by @Tara86


Another terrific example of what can be achieved to create customised storage and an accessible working area even with relatively limited space. The portable workbench is a particularly smart idea in a shared space like a garage.

 6. Workshop shed build by @Kiwifr33


Clearly a passion project, it’s been fascinating to watch this wonderfully unique backyard shed get constructed. It will be a fantastic space to work in when completed, and Kiwifr33’s project to build a solid workbench for the shed has also proved very popular with the community.


7. Garden shed build by @Malcolm


This solid garden shed project freed up valuable space in Malcolm’s workshop for doing projects.


8. New garden shed by @Brad


Another storage shed for garden tools, this one features an Ekodeck floor. Brad managed to assemble it himself, despite it typically being at least a two-person job.  


9. Old shed to funky studio conversion  by @Kermit


A great example of converting an old shed with limited usefulness to an appealing and flexible workspace that increases the value of a home.   

 Cabana.jpgAgents said this cabana dramatically increased the sale price of the property 

10. Old garage to pool cabana conversion by @2Belindas


Another brilliant conversion, this time helping to create a stunning backyard oasis perfect for relaxation and entertaining.
