Today, we're going to finish up our list with some more great garage projects.</br></br>After all, why keep your car in it when you could turn it into one of these awesome things?</br></br><strong>5. Rumpus Rooms</strong></br></br>Taking the staycation in a different direction, it may be easier to send the kids packing than the other way around. It’s as easy as swapping out the sharp objects for a TV, a few bean bags and some video games.</br></br>It’s hard to say, but a garage-turned-rec room may just be far enough away to convince you they’re at camp.</br></br><strong>6. Craft Rooms</strong></br></br>If you’re anything like the typical American with a garage, it’s probably well on its way to becoming a craft room already. Your tool collection needs a purpose, and a little renovation can provide the motivation needed to start crafting.</br></br>Clean out a corner, add some task lighting and a work desk, and the next thing you know you’ll be a craft master.</br></br><strong>7. Home Offices</strong></br></br>One might think that a garage is a terrible place for a home office, but it can work quite well with a couple new walls and some sound-dampening material.</br></br>Or, if you don’t want to invest in the time it takes to fully renovate, you can use office partitions to create a cube within a cube – perhaps not ideal, but maybe better than trying to get work done at the kitchen table.</br></br><strong>8.

There are many more ways to convert your garage, and you’re just a few DIY projects away from a value-boosting home renovation.
