Creating Creativity

Make space for a favorite pastime

As to-do lists get longer, finding time for hobbies gets more difficult. One way to encourage your hobby is by creating a special place for it—your own personal oasis where you can spread out and enjoy your favorite activity.

The sunlit porch shown here is a perfect example. With some repurposed furniture, it found new life as a well-thought-out gardening workspace. Pieces here include a kitchen worktable and closed cupboard. But before you begin, think about your hobby and everything you’ll need to adapt your space and make it your own.

For the rich wood-tone shown here, apply two coats of Minwax® Gel Stain Honey Maple. Then, use two coats of Minwax® Helmsman® Spar Urethane Semi-Gloss for a protective topcoat. When you’re finished, you’ll have a permanent place for your favorite activity—a perfect spot to relax and unwind.
