the learning curve / the supplies

LATE MAY, 2016

What I've discovered so far: garage sales are perfect for supplying a dimroom.  Now, your average sale won't have the "big" supplies (chemistry, a sink, miscellaneous lab supplies), but they will have things that are still necessary.  Think of shelves, lighting, containers, things that could double as trays– you get the idea.  They have the answers to all of the missing odds and ends.

THE SUPPLIES

  • 8'x12' shop from the Shed Man (this is by far the biggest expense, but arguably one of the most important ones)
  • laminate counter– a few bucks from a garage sale
  • cat litter containers for water/chemistry storage– free from a garage sale
A laminate counter I found at a garage sale.  Once I add legs, this will work as the dry side counter.
