« Part 3: Interior Shop Siding Complete Part 4 of Bringing My Workshop Online series Part 5: Installing French Cleats »

After a few weeks of prep work and couple of weekends to put on two coats of paint, my shop walls are just about complete. Up next will be touching up the ceiling. I got some grey wall paint on the ceiling due to a little over-spray. After that will be trim time at the top of the walls. I plan to use 1×4 cedar as trim, to match the trim around my doors.

Thanks for reading.

Two things pop out at me. The first is I like the placement of your outlets up above bench height. Two.. you need a racing stripe running around that room to add some contrast. Maybe a black 12” wide stripe at outlet level?

There must be a lot of satisfaction in seeing this come together. Keep posting; it’s fun seeing the progress.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Scott, not so sure about the 12” wide racing stripe. Let me finish my cabinets first, then we will see…. :-)
Finished touching up my ceiling this afternoon, so next weekend will be trim time. Too bad work keeps getting in the way of me making any progress during the week.
