Happy 2019, everyone! Yes, I know we’re in February but I haven’t yapped at you all on here since the end of last year.  I thoroughly enjoyed my blogging break in January.  Don’t think I was sitting back, not doing a thing, though!  January was pretty busy for 7MD and there doesn’t appear to be [...]

Shop Light Upgrade

2018-08-21T22:16:27+00:00

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared a Shop Upgrade Series installment with you so let’s remedy that today!  I promise this one is super quick and requires only basic tools. Earlier this year I swapped out my hardwired lights in the garage for some LED strip lights.  Like most standard garage lights, the bulbs [...]

You know what I haven’t shared in a while?  A new Shop Upgrade Series installment. One year ago, I was in the midst of my 30 Shop Upgrade (check out parts 1 and 2 here!).  I can look around my shop today and say “well, that sure didn’t last long.”  The place is an absolute [...]

Who’s ready for another installment of the Shop Upgrade Series??  I don’t know about you, but I know my shop is.  Possibly the biggest hurdle in shop organization is lumber and scrap storage.  It’s slowly taking over my shop and every time I try to clean it out, I want to keep it all.  You [...]

It’s time for another installment of the Shop Upgrade Series!  I promise this one is quick and easy.  Like, I surprised myself how fast it went.  I was watching stories on Instagram one day and saw Tim at Woodward Builds (I promise I’m not going to copy him for every upgrade! Ha!) had posted a [...]

How to Get Stain Out of Carpet

2018-01-25T17:49:09+00:00

Often times, my “finishing” room is my living room.  I’d love to have a space that I could set out all my paint and stain projects to work on and dry that was solely for that purpose but I don’t.  I always protect my space with plastic sheets or cardboard but accidents are bound to [...]

30 Ways to Upgrade Your Shop – Part 1

2018-01-29T00:47:57+00:00

I don’t know how it happens and even less how it happens so fast but it seems like just overnight my garage becomes a disaster.  It gets to the point that I can’t find anything or move through it without tripping over something.  I just cleaned up the garage at the beginning of the year [...]
