The Bunnings 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 space 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 or advice for improving your garage and shed, creating handy storage options, or building a new workbench, the Workshop community is here to help.


Check out our Top 10 most popular garage and shed projects on Workshop by pageviews:

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 fantastic second version, and we have published a full step-by-step guide to making your own.


3. New shed storage project by @Tara86


A terrific example of what can be achieved with customised storage and an accessible working area, even with relatively limited space. Tara's portable workbench is a particularly smart idea in a shared space like a garage.

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. D.I.Y. portable bike stand by @Tara86 


Tara created a wonderful portable bike stand on castors so she could quickly and easily move them around. After receiving many plaudits from the community and requests from members wanting to build something similar, Tara generously shared step-by-step instructions on how to replicate the project.


6. Workshop shed build by @Kiwifr33


Clearly a passion project, it was fascinating to watch this wonderfully unique backyard shed get constructed. Kiwifr33’s project to build a solid workbench for the shed has also proved very popular with the community.


7. Garage storage project by @boris

Almost too good to use as a workbenchAlmost too good to use as a workbench 

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.


8. D.I.Y. Workbench by @Baggs 


Almost too good to use as a workbench, this popular project used a pine frame and ply for the benchtop. Let us know if you would like to build something similar and we will be happy to help. 


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.   


10. Folding workbench by @pats6182 


This impressive first project was inspired by a design from Better Homes and Gardens.
