Right after we moved in to the Cavender house Jamie found this A-dor-able little tool shed online.
It wasn’t very expensive, even with shipping.
I’ve looked all over the internet and can’t find any for sale, so I’m assuming they don’t offer them any more.
It’s pretty cute is all you own is a small push mower, a bag of potting soil, a few terra-cotta pots, and a bird feeder. It’s 5 feet wide, 5 feet high and 28 inches deep.
We have real stuff to store…..
There’s a weird inefficient layout to the inside.
2 odd corner shelves, probably to stabilize the beast, and a small 2 shelf build-up taking up valuable floor space on the left.
I removed the odd shelves inside and attached 2 2 X 4’s across the back. One along the floor and another about eye level.
Stabilizing problem solved.
Now it seems to hold much, much more…….Even our wheel barrow.
I hung 2 Ikea Bygel hang bars on the right side. I think they are designed for kitchens. All our small tools and soaker hose are hooked on S-hooks.
On the left side we hung a plastic Rationell Variera storage bin, also from Ikea. This one holds winter cover-ups and fertilizer. Two small hooks underneath hold the pruning shears right where we need them.
Now for the outside…
Remember all the cedar slats I pulled from the old gates? Of course you do, it’s nicely weathered now.
Well, I planked the sides of our shed with it.
See how the side of the tool shed now mimics the lines of the horizontal fence….
Pretty clever, Am i right?
The old latch had some “design issues” so we slapped on a hook & eye combo and 2 new handles as well…….
A few more cedar trim pieces and some russet stain….
Now to replace that horrible asphalt roof….with something with a little more character.
Just you wait people…..
Ohhh, just you wait,
