Three years ago my wife and I sold our home. Shortly after we bought a new home with significantly more space. In the home there was a little hobby room or workshop. My goal was to covert this space into a wine making area. I have recently completed all of the updates and thought I would share the images to help assist people with their own remodeling ideas.
  • Installed a stainless steel double sink (used craigslist)
  • Refinished the walls
  • Installed white trim and white doors
  • Repainted the entire room
  • Installed two cabinets with an 8 foot counter top

Here are some of the before and after photos of this project.

Here are photos from the original working space in our old home. It was a wooden shelf and then for working space. I would lift the carboys/equipment to the chest freezer top. Anytime I needed water, there was a laundry sink next to the chest freezer. When I was done, I had to lift everything back to the wooden shelf. There is a little cubby hole behind the wooden shelf (part of the stair case) where I would store bottles and carboys.

That's awesome! Great job! I've wanted to do something similar, but my home was built in 1941 so even the basement has the old, crumbling wall foundation stuff. But you give me inspiration to tackle my project!
